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!!!!!!!!!!
