Little bit of a mix and match today as some people wanted to go in shirts and others were beat up and trying to just avoid getting injured before the pro/am (myself included)
Shane tried out the new Rage X he has to see if it would be the money shirt, unfortunately although it seems to be a perfect fit his style of benching doesn't work to well with this much shirt. I'm pretty confident though he'll be OK come meet time and we will probably just open in the loose one and then go from there.
Luke worked up to 635 and shut it down. The extreme weight loss he has suffered doesn't seem to have affected his strength that much. Crazy SOB!
Tony B worked up to 825 in his shirt and came about an inch from touching then blasted it up. I wouldn't be surprised if he hits 900 in a few weeks.
Travis began to shirt up then opted out as he became the hand off man. Usually myself and him hand everything out, but I was having some serious forearm cramps everytime I tried to lift off so had to bail on him. I think he hit floor press after everyone was done but didn't see what all he hit.
Tony Ramos did close grip press and worked up to 405 and tried 455 but was a no go. Not bad for a little guy.
Shack and I benched off 2 foam boards. Shack hit 495 then stopped as his torn bicep was hurting him. I worked up to a pr 550 then shut it down as everything hurts.
For accessories I did machine flys, overhead kettlebell press, seated row and hammer curls for a bunch of reps with light wight just to get the blood in there.
