This was a major bummer. I'm having trouble keeping my bench numbers up. I have lost some weight and when that happens my bench suffers. Still, I think I should of had this one but I just lost my drive right in the middle.
Anyway, here you go... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTffwsao-lg
All I had my eyes on was the blonde doing the rows infront of you.
But seriously your a big guy and thats a ton of weight. You were so close to getting it... Good effort
It really looked like that was going up-I bet you'd have 420-430. A girl doing bb rows, I see you train at a REAL gym.
My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003
Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke. he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today - Rock
HB Dude.. were you in that video? lol .. I was blinded by a black bottom & a yellow tank top..
BUTT seriously.. the 440 looked close.. perhaps you were distracted.. b/c you didn't take much rest - like 35 secs - and just threw that 405 up!!

I think it was that blonde in the background doing the rows that distracted the Heavy Bomber from doing his 440.
Long signatures SUCK.
I think you need some more intense music than "learning to fly" pink floyd is good when your high, not when your bench pressing

Bomber- you are totally capable of hitting this lift man. With a liftoff you would have had it for sure.
With strength I burn
So close!!! If you kept it from drifting, you'd definitely have it!!

You lift like a girl!!!
Wait a second... mmm, smith rows never seemed so appealing.
Haha, I'm just playing HB, you almost had that bro!!! I agree w/ the music comment, you need some hardcore music that really gets your blood pumping. I know when I listen to some good music my lifts definitely improve and I can focus that much harder.
Keep with it big guy, you're an inspiration to lift heavy!
Scars are tatoos with better stories.
Bench press? Where?
Damn that little rower is fine!
Dude. I just WISH I could throw 405 raw up like that. Even in a shirt!
there is no failure in a 440 bench press, if you can attempt that then F me! crazy! nice try big man!
2000 or bust
My goal shall be to be able to start a thread titled "my failed 440 lb bench press attempt" instead of "this is mik's brother......mik is dead. dumbass tried to bench 440"
440 is yours man!

Yeah man, as soon as I start losing any weight my bench dies. Three months ago, 450 was easy. Now... 425 is rough, and I've only dropped a few pounds.

You're right, a lift off wuold have been nice but the last time I had that dude give me a lift off he like totally messed me up. He like takes control of the bar and gets me started on a wierd angle and then I have to like fight it back to where I need it to be. I usually don't use lift offs in the gym. At the meet I would have though. Thanks dude.Originally Posted by RickTheDestroyer
Very close. I think if you had lowered it a tad slower and tighter you might have gotten it... but then again, my bench is beyond pathetic.
It's already been mentioned, but the blonde needs to get off the Smith machine, open her stance and bend at the knees a little more - she's just asking for a back injury (even on the Smith machine)... If you give her lessons and you end up dating, I take full credit.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

You guys looking at that blond... lol
Actually, she's really hard-core and intense. She comes in and works hard and then disappears. She's reeally stand-offish though. In fact, she has never talked to me. lol
Man, I eat a lot. My sleep has been really lacking though. I need to check out your lifting. 450! I need to be there. Thanks man.Originally Posted by Belial
good lift HB, you'll get it next time!

I'll get her to widen her stance
I re3ally think I would have gotten it plus five at the meet. You know, with the adreneline pumping and the whole meet atmoshere but they postponed it -bastards.
Alright. You guys (and gal) are awesome.
