    Sorry if it seemed as if we offended you about the juice... It seems to me you have pretty good ties with a lot of people on this baord and they were just razzin' ya!! maybe everyone is a bit jealous of your gains...

    We were talking about man juice. Semen. He missed the reference. Which makes it quite funny, really.

    I hate it when the spotter touches the bar. . .and guys appreciate it when you don't touch the bar when you spot as well. . .I always get a "nice spot dude" etc. . .unless it is a loser who is trying to help me with my deadlifts. . .haha. ..

    LOL @ canadagold, I friggin' hate spotters like that as well. Out of every guy in the gym I always manage to pick the guy who touches the bar even when I tell him, do NOT touch the bar unless it starts to come back down to my chest.

    If you are like me you always remember those guys and never spot them again. I even tell them after not to ask for a spot until they can actually lift the weight.
    ANOTHER PISS OFF is guys who rep it to failure and then think you will do a few deadlifts on the end of each set. . .NOT!

    I bought mine from Karin. She charges $165 for a double denim open back. This shirt will last me a long time though.

    Cheater.

    $165? Hot damn nuggah...is it really worth it? What do you mean by open-back...as in your skin is exposed in the back? How much do you think your max would be without the shirt?

    Lookin' good though Latty 306 is coming up close!

    The shirt is open in the back, so yes my back is exposed. It makes it very easy to get in and out of the shirt.


    I have hit 230 raw close grip. I've been training raw bench more often lately, so I'll probably be good for 240-250 soon.

    To me it doesn't matter how much my raw bench goes up, it's how much my competition bench goes up. That's the one that counts.


    In October I'll be doing a meet at 148 and hope to go ~300 there for an official 2xBW.

    315@185 , the first time I tried a fury( latmans)

    This was a 40lb pr, and a bout a year in the making. Even tho I felt good for 325 or so, I didn't want to taint the good feeling with a potential miss.

    I actually tried it at my last meet, but didn't use enough weight to tough.

    Ordering my own today

    The plan was 325 but that didn't happen, neither did my third attempt, which was 350

    I am a senior in high school and I'm on the weightlifting team. My season ended early this year b/c I strained my left pec. The best I ever did was a 395 bench weighing in at 185. Before my injury, I was hoping to bench somewhere in the 400's. I would've made a state record. Sometimes it gets me down when I think about what I SHOULD HAVE accomplished but I finally just realized that there was nothing I could have done to prevent it and now I'm starting to get a positive outlook on things. I'm only moving forward now.

    P.S.

    Injuries Suck
