    bench meet in Fl

    We had a bench meet in Ft Myers Fl. today, It was an APA meet, i saw a up and coming bench beast...Mike couch busted a easy 665 at 281 lbs body weight! i thought he had atleast 685 in him, he is just rough around the edges, needs to work on his form, and technique...the scary thing is, he said he hasnt been training regularly, he plays tournament softball..he said, his training has been real spread out, and doesnt allways have time to lift, and he is still that strong!!! I had trained in the morning, before the meet, and had my boards, and chains still laying out...he saw them and told me he never used that stuff! He is one strong dude!! PLJAY, i was hoping you would have come to check out the meet and gym and hang a little!! maybee next time buddy!!

    Dam bro Couch hit 665. I was watching some old footage today when he hit 605 at a meet i did in Jan 2001 were i did 535lbs. He is strong!

    Ya man i would have came but its a long haul and i had the kids to watch while my wife worked. Would hav elove to come too. MY buddy was gonna do it, but both of them pulled out. Glad to hear it went good. Couch is the one that has beaten me for best lifter twice by less then .4 last time! Looks like i better get stronger. Did yu lift? How about Ironmaiden?

    I will be at the Nationals too. I am not sure if i will be 242 or 275's. Either way, if i wanna get Couch on Formula i got work to do.

    PLJAY I think the meet that your thinking of is in Winter Park not Winter Haven. Its in orlando I think. I wouldnt mind doing that one, if you do it. But I know for sure im gonna do the nationals. Cause I got to put up the biggest bench in the teenage 242's. YEEAAAAAAHHHHH BBBOOOYYYY!

    OH ya it is winter park. I knew that ! For some reason i was thinking the other. Shit there is nothing in winter haven!

    Yes Myth we will do that one. And no way would i miss the Nationals. YOu can get the number 1 at 242 teen and i am gonna go for the number 1 in the top 100 at 242.
