personal best 305 twice.
Just got back from the gym and did my best bench ever first time ever over 300 and got 305 twice....clean. It seems like only yesterday i was struggling to get 125 up twice. Oh yah body weight is 195 so that puts me at 110 pounds over body weight which i think is pretty dang good. Anyone else have any personal bests lately???

Congrats! It is always a great feeling to get a personal record. Now you have to push hard for 315.

I trap bar deadlifted 425 16x a few weeks ago, thought that was pretty nice. I plan to video tape my next big one.
I'm at about 275x3 at 178-180lbs. So, I have a ways to go to 305x2. Great achievement bro.
I remember when I got 200 in high school. Good dang feeling.
Keep it up.

Yeah, 225 was something special too. The first time I ever tried it, I got it 3x. I was proud of myself....
until I remembered my buddy reping it as a sophmore in highschool. Gotta hate those genetic freaks.

I love it when I see that. The guys that used to walk around punking everybody now have a little fear and uncertainty in their eyes when they talk to you...motivating.

make sure u got spotter, not too fun when u gotta slide off weights on one side then watch other end of bar violently flip up and have the weights slide off that end, then u get 2 inch deep holes in ur floor....

Congrats Someday!! Do you primarily do bodybuilding or powerlifting?

I'd be scared to lift without a rack any more... one slight slip of form and that bar ain't getting locked out and racked.

Very nice lift bro.....always good to see a bro reach a personal best. What weight do you have your goal set at? Continue the hard work and the lifts will keep going up.

I appreciate all the kind words yall. I've been feeling pretty good the last couple days i guess cuase i consider myself a stronger than average person now. I've been taking the last two days off from the gym cause i hate to push myself that hard and then go back the next day and risk injury of some sort. I'm back in tomarrow though and rarin to go. My goal ultimatly is to be a solid 200 or so, seeing as im 5'9" i figure thats a pretty good weight for my size especially if i could do it around 10% or so, but then again ill get there and want to be 210 then 220 and so on. It never ends.
