Just when U think...
MAn oh man...Im thinking IM having a great day hit 420 on the bench on monday...repped out 225 for 23...i weigh about 230..so this is sweet right?...well for me... Big bench contest next sat...IM not kidding 6 guys come in and all of them are jacked...all six bench over 405...impressive...then one guy hits 480...then ...another cat hits 585!!!....Well as the story started ...just when you think you got it licked...theres always someone around the corner too show you how much further you have to go....

i dont have a shirt. i tried a friends on but it was to small. i am thinking abotu getting one in the future. my contest at my university in illinois. i am not going to use anything this time. gloves are not allowed so i was going to get wrist wraps but put it off to long. you think a belt would be worth anything?

I ahvent been using anything either...but everyone uses a belt ..either psychological..or it really helps with the additional support any edge is an edge...wraps would be good to get its not too late for them...good luck!!!!

i dont have a good sporting goods store around here. so i would have to order them. i just got some inzer knee wraps and they are great so i was going to get the wrist wraps too. but it takes about a week to get here so i am sol!!!! i might try a belt but i have never used one before and i dont want to fvck anything up. how many lifts do you get and what are you going to try??
