    Good stuff on the speed bench, is there any particular reason why you prefer to finish off the triceps with pressdowns rather than lying extensions or JM presses?

    Thanks!!! No not really. I was actually going to but I was short on time and pressdowns are a lot faster. I'll probably do something different next week.

    I haven't had 455 in my hands for a long time either, ever actually (unless you count deadlifts), lol. Looks like a really heavy day for the triceps, lots of pressing, good stuff!

    That's about what I get from the slingshot too. 5 reps versus 2 reps without. 3 reps with right around max single without.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total
