    My provincial bench press record! Thanks WBB!

    So about about 2 years ago i found this site and started training for strength. At the time i had a sloppy 185ish max bench press. I followed BGB for a long time, then made the switch to powerlifting. I recently set a provincial record (OPA 90kg junior) in bench press. Thanks for the support everyone!

    This was my Second Attempt- 185 kg Provincial record!!!!

    To answer the questions that i will be asked, It's a single ply katana that i can put on by myself... its pretty loose, used to belong to Shane Church (Travis might know him, he trained at WSB for a week this year). Its an IPF affiliated federation. My raw bench is about 350lb right now.


    My opener- 175kg

    Third Attempt (and fail) - 192.5kg

    congratulations!!
    just one question, why your ass is not on the bench? I like the way you get in position, i think i'll take inspiration, i always find difficult to properly arch my back.

    Ass is on the bench my friend. Never leaves it. 3 white lights.

    I have a pretty tight arch and the actual bottom of my ass is on the bench.

    Yeah only qualified for bench the bench only portion. I might do a sanctioned meet in the beginning of the year and try to get my class one though. I would have got it at the last meet but i **** the bed and bombed my squats (all to high in a new suit).

    HAha yeah i can see what you mean, but i had judges on both sides so should be good! Before seeing this vid i had NO idea my arch had gotten so good, i knew i was getting good at getting a tight set up but i thought my arch sucked.
