    Second time in a shirt today

    As the title suggests, today was my second time in a shirt. I've put on about 4lbs in the last month (depending on the time of day) so the shirt was a little tighter than last time I wore it.

    Some folks drove in from Moose Jaw (I live in Regina) to help me with my shirt and a training partner of mine with his squat suit. It was a lot of fun and I set a big PR.

    4 weeks ago I did 270lbs in the shirt which was probably close to my 1rm at the time. Today, I hit 275lbs for a single, then for a double!

    If I had to guess I'd say my 1rm would be 290lbs right now. Hoping to get 315lbs on August 5th at provincials. Learning to use the shirt better and getting hella strong in that time should make that an easy goal to attain!

    Dead - 589lbs -- 267.5kg -- Dec 20, '08 (Provincial Record @100kg class)
    Total: 1537lbs -- 697.5kg -- Dec 20, '08 (Provincial Record @ 100kg class)
    Bench Only -- 358lbs -- 162.5kg -- Nov. 25, '07 (Provincial Record @ 90kg class)
    Bench Only -- 376lbs -- 171kg -- Jan. 26, '08 (Provincial Record @ 100kg class)

    Good stuff Deeder! I got into my shirt for the 3rd time and got a 290, with the way your numbers go up you should be benching 360 by the end of the year!

    I think a better title for this this thread would be....
    "Where in the heck is Moose Jaw?"
    haha
    Take a left at Wolf Point, go uphill towards Bear Nuts, then over the Seal Bridge, towards Calf Ankles and finally arrive at Moose Jaw.
    haha...

    I've actually heard of Moose Jaw before... but being raised in the boonies of BOONville.. never actually heard from someone who knew where it was.

    BTW.. Nice work in the shirt Deeder... awesome PR..
    Sounds like your goals for August should be inline.. the more shirt groove your learn.
    GL..
