    Travis Bell Benches 805 at the SPF Ohio State Meet

    I'm sure Travis will post more later, but he hit an easy 805 on his 2nd attempt today at the meet.

    Congrats Travis

    Thanks guys! I really appreciate all the positive comments.

    I missed 825 on my third because I got lazy with my technique. Was pretty dissapointed with that. Its been over a year since I've snagged a PR in the shirt so to leave the platform today with a 35lb PR was satisfying.

    I can't say enough about how much I appreciate the support Chris has given to me both as a friend and as a sponsor. I know there is no way I'd be able to train the way I do without the great supplements I get from him.

    Also Overkill and Rudy Rosales. Rudy has been quite helpful while I transitioned between shirts and learned the Overkill. The reason I missed my opener of 805 was because it came up far faster than I anticipated! I feel that after a successful training cycle of touching frequently and now a somewhat successful meet, I can really dig in and see what this shirt can do.

    On a side note I'd like to throw out a big congrats to Jon Shackelford who nailed his Pro total today and Jake Anderson who totaled a HUGE 2750 with a crazy fast 830 bench and an 860 pull. Jake left a lot in the squat today. I love training at Westside and watching my teammates hit big PRs like that.

    Awesome Travis.

    For what it's worth, I think you're one of the unsung heroes in the sport. No flashy bullshit or drama, just rock solid consistency and drive.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    I think this makes me happier than if I were to bench 800 pounds.

    So happy to see you reach the goal you set for yourself. Onto 900.

    Actually, only one person has said that, and he obviously has some problem with Louie. I am sure he regrets making the most illogical statement of the century...
