Shirt bench and Just Big Show! With Video

Last Monday was a bench day at Apollon. Two weeks prior I had hit a huge 2-board pr with 725 in this shirt, leading me to believe that there might be more in it than I had previously thought. I LOVE my Ace, but the chance of wringing a few more pounds out of my gear is worth pursuing, especially since the Ace is now a few years old and will likely get replaced soon anyway.

I certainly wasn't expecting anything crazy, since boards are rarely a good indicator for my full range numbers, but I wanted to see if I could go north of 600 in it with good form.

Here's how it went:

bar x a bunch,
95 x 5
135 x 5
185 x 1
225 x 1
275 x 1
315 x 1

Added Metal Catapult


Added Metal Jack Bench Shirt

455 3 board
495 2 board
545 1 board
585 touch
615 touch

Here's the 615

This is only 13 lbs off of my meet pr, and honestly, it wasn't really all that hard. I feel like a little more weight will actually help me get the bar down faster and give me more rebound.

Needless to say I was very happy with this. I'm going to keep working in the Jack for now and see if I can master it by the September RPS meet (assuming I do it).

Finished with some pulldowns for my back and was outta there.

Tune in to the Just Big show tonight to hear none other than The Dominator himself, Steve Pulcinella. Should be... interesting.
