Our crew ran a benchpress seminar today at the University of Waterloo. Despite the 6 am wakeup to make it there on time, it was an absolute blast! The students seemed to really enjoy it, and the 4 of us from the Anvil had fun as well.
even though I'm benching tomorrow, I worked up to a nice and easy 315 for a single. Flew up (as it should) which made me happy given how ****ty my raw bench has been since I dropped the weight. Weighed in, fully dressed with jeans and shoes on, at 264 today, so weight is still real low. Gonna change gears and work back up into the 275lbs range where my gear fits better and my strength is better without the negative effects of being fatter :P Gonna spend the next few week training raw as well, until my gear fits again. Also thinking of doing a raw meet in december.
