Finally 225

It was on decline, it was only once and it wasn't pretty, but i don't care lol Still only could get 215 on flat, oh well. Figured that's not too bad only weighing 185 and cutting calories. Been wanting this since joining the gym in mid feb. Back then i was struggling to get 185 up Go ahead musclemen, bash away

If youre improving thats all that matters. no matter what you can lift. You have to keep in mind everyone's bodies are different

Sounds good, stick with it and you'll be posting about 315 soon.
I just did bench today myself. Pushed 425 then 505 with a shirt on.

Excellent job, keep it up and stick with it, your results will come!

I just did a new best on Monday as well.
365 x 6 on incline, no shirt on.
I still prefer DB's with pauses at the bottom of the reps though.

Speaking of negative pauses, I'm about to start 6 weeks of DC again. Ugh.

It's a shirt that power lifters use when going heavy.
It will increase your bench press substantially.

Depending on lifting style and brand, I've seen shirts add 20% to a lift.

Hell my house cat is doing 45lbs for reps with his bench shirt on! YEEAAAAA BUDDAAAAAAY!!! LIGHT WEIGHT!!!

Many times it will hurt someones bench press as well. There is a painful learning curve.

People that think the average joe lifter could put on a bench shirt and instantly bench more are misguided

good job! i remember when i was really big into lifting and i hit 225, i was so stoked. i only weighed 172lbs (which is heavy for me) when i did it. i just started lifting again this week and i can probably only bench about 185. in 6 months of not lifting and eating like shit i dropped to 150lbs!
