Well i really should have worked the shirt more but i figured if im gonna blow a ME day on testing shit im gonna PR first!!! I basically decided to try for the bench PR after the workout got underway, i was feeling pretty good and went for it and struggled a bit but got the fucker up, psyched as all hell but i think this had its drawbacks when the shirt came into play. Mentally i was beat and the friggin bicep issue was slowly creeping back so i was a little less than enthused to do the shirt but i had a go anyway. This sucker is way different than how i would normally bench. I found that my timing was off with the shirt as far as leg drive. The 335 went up with no leg drive, like a friggin putz i lifted my feet off the ground like i used to years ago when attempting a max load, what the fuck was that? CNS maybe? i dont know, pissed me off though, then came the 355 which i was figuring would go up easy but instead came out of the groove and dropped like a lead turd. Oh well, this wasnt the smartest training session in the world, i should have chose one or the other, Raw or shirted, not both......With that behind me i have formulated a plan to hopefully learn the shirted bench and get a hell of a lot more carryover than i got today which was none!
Since the bicep started nagging again i decided to save the Accesoory and Supplemental portion of the night and do them today.
I'm quite confident that after i dedicate some time, do some reading, and get under the fucking bar i will master this shirt and end up with a decent carryover, here's to positive thinking!!!!

Congrats on the raw PR! That's some nice benching for a 200 pounder (I know because I am about the same weight and put up 300).

Thanks man, i appreciate it. I'm quite happy with the benching as of late, for the longest tie i had a psychological issue with 315, that sucker eluded me for the longest time, the speed work solved that problem.....thanks for stopping by...
