    Holy **** I actually won a BP contest!

    Man nobody was more shocked then me! A buddy of mine convinced/entered me in a bench press contest today, I though it would be fun just to see what I could do. I weighed in at 193 and my 3 lifts went as follows 1- 268 2-285 3-300, I didnt get the 300 but I KNOW it was because I psyched myself out of it. Half way up I though "man this is heavy" and the bar stopped right there. My buddy who was watching/coaching said he thought I had it for sure. Well anyway my class was from 193 to 213. They scored by the spread between your body weight and the weight you lifted. I was shocked when they called my name for 1st, I hadn't been watching the board since I only planned on doing it to judge my progress. Anyway I am hooked now and will hit 315 for the next one in a couple of months for sure. Ohh well enough chat, BACK TO THE GYM!!!!!!!!!!

    That's cool Rhoades. let us know how the next meet goes.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    I think that there was only 1 guy that light and he hit 230 or so I think? Most of the guys were up in the 200lb range in terms of weight.

    Thanks man. That would be sweet one day, but I was suprised the bench for that weight class wasn't a lot more. There are a lot of guys 150-160 that are benching 300+.

    Nice job man! What did you win? If there's any money involved I might have to stop by the next one. Me & you would be in the same weight class as I weigh 198 pounds @ 5'11".

    I worked out with 345 for 4 sets of 3 just the other day. I would estimate my one rep max at 365-370 depending on how I'm feeling. Is there any age limits or categories? I'm 19, but I'll be 20 in Feb so...
