    What the fuck man, how big are you? Are you wearing gear? I've never seen anybody on the same level as me just leave me in the dust like you're doing. We had the same bench a few months ago..

    I'm 6' 207 right now. No gear, all raw. I've been making some decent jumps on bench over the last few months, I hope I can keep it going for a bit yet.

    Speed Bench + Minis
    Thumb on Smooth @ 135 - 3 x 3
    X-wide Grip @ 150 - 3 x 3
    Reg Grip @ 165 - 4 x 3

    DB Press
    @ 75 x 17

    Scull Crushers
    @ 95 - 3 x 12

    JM Press + 45 lbs chains
    @ 115 x 8, 8, 9

    + unremarkable rear and side delt work

    I'm switching things up a bit with my bench work. After missing my last attempt at 360 with 2 boards I went back and re-read a few of the articles on westside and want to adjust my me days(use bands more often and forget about the boards for the most part).

    I have been really mailing it in on speed days, not really trying to figure out how to do wave periodization at all (I'll be working on this). I ordered the bench manual 2 days ago, and I'm re-motivated to keep things progressing with my bench.

    Parallel Box Squat
    @ 135 x 10
    @ 225 x 5
    @ 275 x 5
    @ 315 x 5
    @ 345 x 3
    @ 365 x 1
    @ 375 x 1

    Tire Flips - 3 sets of 12

    Sledge Hammer Work - 3 sets of 20 strikes

    My back has been feeling pretty good, and I'm gunna start going a bit heavier on the squats. Also, the tire flips and the hammer work was superset.

    Missed the first attempt at 270 + bands and I couldn't stomach missing a pr 2 weeks in a row so I tried again, and again and got both. The kettlebell bench is f'n awesome never tried it before, but will be doing these from time to time for sure.

    @ 3 plates - 3 x 12

    Shrugs

    My delts are a major weak point for me, and always have been. Time to hammer the hell out of 'em.

    Stellar seeing you go back and nail the new benching PR and then some...glad you are digging the kettlebell benching too. Ace follow-up with the back & trap work.

    Tire Flips

    I liked the kettlebell bench so much I had to give it a shot with squats. With the crunches and tire flips I'm shot.

    Bako, I've been reading through Westside articles and the bench press manual. Pretty much following what they recomend for a three week cycle. There is just so much variation in what they are all doing, so I'm trying to figure out what will work best for me.

    L Lateral Raises

    This was my first time using the future method. I read that using light bands was best for this, but I don't have light bands, so I used my minis and my monster minis from the top of the squat rack. I don't think I could have got 401.
