So I had another good day today, 6 night works in a row, empty stomach and feeling SAF! Ended up trying 405 with a conventional dead, I have to look. It I believe this is the heaviest I've ever pulled with a conventional. Still felt like I had another pull in me!

Nice pull!  :thumbsup:

So I tried to kill myself today, I can honestly say this is the first time I ever thought about dumping the bar, there were two people watching so I certainly couldn't, but I definitely thought about it! 345 for a squat PR, definitely could have gone a little deeper but i don't think I would have got it up. Was a serious grinder

Ya the depth is what I'm most unhappy about, and I felt like it took way longer to get it up than it actually did, one thing I'm happy with is I didn't round my back or cave my legs in

Seriously good work Deralta and DS.

DS-I think profanity prelift is more effective than postlift.  ;D Keep those vids coming.

Did my first ever 300 pound reverse-grip bench the other day.  Couldn't really have gotten much uglier as I hit the pin on the way up and pretty sure I stretched a tendon or something when I did it (as I have a twinge in there now afterwards).  Then the cherry on top was my daughter didn't hold the phone sideways to make the weight clearly visible, but it's a 45, two 35's, a 10, and a 2.5 on each side.  I think I've posted enough vids where I shouldn't have to worry about e-statting.  :D

Anyway, got 300 and had never tried doing this lift until the first of the year (so just under 5 months).  Good progress.

What's the reasoning behind doing reverse grip?

It's a way to keep your bench press strong w/o actually doing the traditional grip lift and having to deal with the shoulder issues that come with that particular lift.  I've been lifting heavy for over 20 years w/o any breaks, so have some wear and tear shoulder problems that kind of sprung up last year.  I haven't done regular grip bench or OHP in about 6 months and my shoulders now feel great.  But even not having benched in that long, I bet I can still put up ~350 if I tried with regular grip, because doing them reverse grip has preserved all that strength that took years to build up.  Reverse grip takes all the strain off the shoulders.  ID and a few other people turned me on to the reverse grip.

Start with light weight and scoot way up on the bench.  It is very awkward at first and unracking the bar can be the most challenging part, when just getting a feel for the lift.  I could only do 185 when I started doing the lift in January, but you really progress quickly once you get the ROM down.

Scoot like way up! Bar is right in line with my chest. If you try and set up like normal BBBP it's awkward as f*ck to get the bar unracked.
Like AJ said it's a great shoulder saver and I've been using it since my SLAP and partial rotator cuff tear.
One other bit of info. If you've got tight wrists it can take a while to work the hands into position.
