Bench Shirt work today - very interesting...

Bench - Titan F6 (44)
315 x 2, 365 x 2, 385 x 0,1, 315 x 2,2,2,2

Bent-row 225 x 5,5,5 underhand x 5,5

Floor Triceps ext. 95# x 5,5,5

Swings 24 kg x 10 min

I am going to be bloodied and bruised from the shirt - very interesting - couldn't get anything to touch - even with 385 I was 2-3" off of my chest - good lock out work - missed one rep at 385 because I was out of the groove. Not a bad first day with the bench shirt.

welcome to the Dark Side young power jedi-bwahahahahahhaaha; I loves gear.miss it all time and I have my old squat suit tacked to the wall and my bench shirt out too,lol.

way to adapt so quickly to it, shows you are made for it.cant wait to you try the squat suit you're gonna REALLY like that.

If you REALLY like lifting heavier and heavier weights you gotta like gear cause you can flat out handle so much more.

And to anyone who says the gear is doing the lift I have a squat suit they can try on- I'll load the bar.

Thanks Rif - I actually went to the gym today when I knew it wouldn't be crowed - The Dark Side is attractive - can't wait for the Squat suit. Fun stuff!

LOL @ not being able to get the bar down. I have to put my lifting partner in a bench shirt, and she's actually said to me "You might have to push this weight down for me."

I don't use any gear.... yet.

Uh Oh Brett...gear??? What would the purists say?? You are an evil one now dude, no turing back.

I have been checking your blog, good stuff. Sounds like the raw meet went decent. I used to lift in the ADAU but hate it now due to the exact reasons you were disapointed.

IPA Worlds is 8 weeks away!!!! I am getting stoked.

Take care-
