    Had to share me attempting the milestone. (I know it aint that heavy really for serious lifters at all) but i was still happy to hit it:) I train and compete as a bodybuilder, so really going heavy or chasing PR's really isnt my thing, however my mind had changed after i added a little tren to my bulk cycle two weeks back :) (lol get that tren strength and was pretty close to four plates so decided to go for it!)

    I suppose strict lifters (and probably especially power lifters) will probably point out that it wouldnt count in a competition... but i still lowered it down pretty slowly gave a puase about an inch or two from chest and was able to get it up so I'll take it:)

    I threw vid in below incase you were curious how it looked!

  2. 405 is definitely an accomplishment. 95% of people in most gyms can’t hit that.

    Doing that with no wrist wraps = impressive.

    I wear them because my left wrist is unstable as I broke it when I was a kid, and messed up the tendon in my right one a few years ago. Benching heavy they throw fits lol.

    The support is nice with the good ones too.

    Great job, especially for someone who's not a powerlifter.

    Thx man, and yeh he was aggressive with the spot it kinda threw me off a bit but managed to get it up... i'll keep working on it, maybe do one in a few months again if my strength keeps going up!
