    humbled, embarrassed, but proud

    I was just reading another thread on benching smith vs. free weight and it reminded me that i was humbled in my own experience. My profile listed my max bench at 275, what i didnt realize was the difference lifting w/ smith as compared to free weights. I recently built a home gym, all free weights and i was incredibly depressed when i realized that i couldnt even manage 205 on a flat bench.Guess shoulders DO count for something.
    Now the embarrassing part, started taking celltech (2 weeks now), and after searching this board i understand its not a real favored supp. BUT, it may be all in my head, but i do feel stronger, im up over 200lbs body weight and last night (the proud part) i benched 265 free weights 2 reps, one clean and one assisted, AFTER i did a set of 6 with 245.
    I read this board every night, dont post alot because i have a lot to learn still, but i have the utmost respect for many of you members opinions. Just wanted to share my happy day..lol

    Congrats on the bench


    Celltech isn't all bad..it's just the fact it's overpriced and the manufacturers of the product make so many outrageous claims some of us tend to shy away from the product.
