Nice! That a bench PR?

It was a pr. Certainly didn't feel like it though. I've had to hold back on my bench because my butt comes up. I've gotten better at keeping my butt down, but when the weight gets heavy it still wants to pop up.  I've certainly got a bigger bench in me. Just need to move the weight properly so it counts.  The rps benches are really grippy. Helps allot to have nice equipment like that.

I love the RPS benches. I can stick onto it like a suckerfish and plant my feet flat, use my entire body to bench instead of my delts.

Just as an FYI: RPS is more lenient than most feds on that; as long as your thighs are in constant contact with the bench you will get the lift.

Tooth,
It was a fun Meet, and I'm glad you had a fun time. 

It was easily, the fastest Meet I've run.  31 lifters, and even with an hour break (the RPS ambassador' choice not mine), we were wrapped by slightly after noon.

And some amazing lifts.  Still can't get over Katrina pulling a 500lb Deadlift at 178lbs and a raw bench of 285.  Now you know why she has the nickname Hurricane.

We raised over $4200 for Shriners.

Do not fear The Iron, for it does not care.

Unless acted upon by a Superior Force.
