    I have decided to completely cut full meets for just bench for now. I’m going to keep training squat and deads but just to maintain. I would like to have a 900 lb double ply and 600+ raw this year. Ill bench twice a week one max effort one speed.


    Speed bench 12x3 first three sets are just for warm-up Usually just the bar and doubled monster mini bands. then I do nine more adding a mini and going up to 225 bar weight. Then some dumbbell over head press 120lb 3x10 dumbbell bench 3x12 120lbs lateral flys 3x10 200+lbs skull crushers with a short barbell and 45lbs 3x8 tricep push downs till failure.

    Thanks I think getting the raw bench up is going to be the bitch. With the shirt I could try another shirt or change technique and it may get me 50lbs with a little training.

    Fuck yeah it's going to be a bitch.. lol. Anything like that isn't worth having if it comes easy. Raw is the only way, keep it pure!

    What's your stats? Cycle history? Programming?

    Awesome! Id like to get 500 by the time Im 50 next year. I got 490 a couple months ago but my wife touched it (not IT, the bar) because my arms were shaking right before lockout(doesnt count). Ive been doing the bulgarian method for a little over 3wks and Ive actually adapted to it.Ive been at trt dosage for quite a while. My next cycle should get me there hopefully. Youve got this and good luck!

    Yeah, that's not that good bro. Lots of 550# raw benchers around here o_O

    Subbed for the amazing goodness that comes with a 600# bench press!

    USPA but I’m going to try some others. I’m shotting for one in June with Lexan.

    I’ve only lifted with RPS but USPA would be my next choice. Nice numbers on bench. We got a guy on another forum going for a 550lb bench raw in the 220 or 242 class

    I would love to drop some weight and go 275 but I’m paranoid about losing strength.

    You're one strong bastard.

    I've seen two 550lb raw benches in my time and it's a crazy thing to watch.

    600 would be unearthly....
