Thumbs up The Shirt Works.

Traded the bench shirt i bought for a bigger size.

Hit 405 tonight with it on. All the way down paused and all the way up with ass on the bench. I think it's cheating for sure now. Added 75lbs to my best.

I think i could have lifted a little more too. My skin was so ripped up i had to take the damn thing off before trying 415. I have the bloody marks all over my chest, armpits, shoulders and back of the arms.

Come mid July this could be interesting. Hit a 485 dead lift yesterday.

not everyone gets the same thing out of a shirt. Depends on how you train, how you bench, where your weak point is, the type of shirt, how it fits, etc, etc, etc. I get about 50 lbs out of my shirt. One of my lifting partners only gets like 25. Some people get nothing. Some people can get a couple hundred. Most of them have a bench stroke that is about 6 inches, weigh over 300, and bench 800+ though

This was my first time to successfully use the shirt. I think i could get 100 out of it pretty easy. Im pleased with it.
Im going to start training with some boards now.

Board work is great, and most importantly start doing speed work. Do 9 sets of 3 with 50-60% of your max, focusing on doing it as fast and explosively as possible. Your central nervous system will get hardwired into lightning fast movements, so when you get in the shirt, using the pop off your chest you can actually "out run" the weight into the lockout. Dave Tate is a great example of this. He could only do a pin lockout with ~500 but could bench 700. Using jump stretch bands and chains on the bar helps to force the speed but doing it with straight bar weight is still better than nothing.

Awsome, thanks.

I just look up the US and World APF police/fire records.
Looks like the world bench press record for 181 is only 374lbs for police and fire.
I may just have me a little record my first time out!!

I powerlifted for years and never used a shirt. It's mental help!!


Shirts are like cheating on a test: yeah you passed with help but, could you do it by youself. but to each his own. GL with the lifting.
