    i wish i pressed that. I think its actually less than what i said. On my chest it felt lighter than 205. Id say on chest it added 20lbs and around 40-50 at lockout

    It's all good. Just make sure you beat 175 plus the bands next time and that is all that matters.

    With everyone saying you should increase your back work, why don't you do something similar to what Travis does. Since you aren't doing DE squat(unless things changed recently), why don't you have an upper back day, spaced away from your benching. That way you know you are hitting your back. I know you will have to work out your scheduling and stuff like that, but it's just a thought. If you do choose this, just don't do it too close to benching and don't go crazy with it.

    Thanks for the advice. Ive considered replacing DE squat w/ an upper back day. Im going to take a look at travis's log for scheduling and exercise options.

    EDIT: screw the routine i came up with for bench to work up to the virtual meet. Im going to do something different every week and ill max in 4 weeks and for the virtual meet. Im going to just lift heavy weights and make sure i work my weak points enough.

    Whether you want to use it for the meet or not, I would read Scott Yard's article on raw training and Vin's article on his road to a 600lbs raw bench. Here are both articles in case you haven't read them. They are what I would/am going to use once I move to a conjugate routine.

    Right on. Do what works for you. Look back in your journal and see what your routine looked like when you where getting PRs.

    Good DE work man! Have you figured out how you will set up your routine yet? I mainly ask because you have 1 pulling exercise to 3 pushing exercises.

    Good job on the PR, dude! Out of curiosity, your friends follow a Westside template? I don't know too many 15/16 year olds who know what Westside is. Just interested, is all.

    Haha, right, I know you do. I just think it's atypical for kids that age to be using a Westside template is all I'm saying. You, sir, are the exception to the norm!
