I had one ages ago.  Do you feel like it's helped your bench?

Probably not too much but it's fun to have.  Lisa has one too, hers is still like brand new.

I enjoy using mine.  I tend to use it as a warmup before I get in the Shirt.  I have found, that it saves a lot of pain in my shoulder.

As I've aged, I've found more things to help preserve my body.

So I can do more stupid stuff with it.

I hurt my shoulder benching this morning.

I don't like using the benches with the fixed bar positions because the bar is too low and far back and awkward.

But I was lazy and didn't pull a bench into the rack today and paid the price.

Anyway looking forward to having some fun with these two bad boys.

My gym rubber flooring is finally ready for pick-up so this weekend I'll be moving my gym stuff to the basement.

I can't fucking wait.  So excited.  After years of having all this awesome stuff in the garage where it's a total pain in the ass, too cramped, too hot, too cold, too dirty/dusty, I will finally have a nice clean temp controlled lifting environment.

They are talking about moving back to stage 2 here, which means closing the gyms again.  once I am set up in the house I won't give a shit as much anymore.

I've been benching twice a week for years now; Tuesdays and Saturdays.
