Bench Press (raw downsets) 315x3x2
Next 2 Exercises Supersetted

Pretty good night in the shirt, i was kind of expecting it as i felt pretty good all day. The 365 PR went like nothing, everything fired correctly, now i just got to replicate that everytime!!! The 375 was a bit of a pisser as i got out of the groove and hit the pins at lockout, then the bar came back down and all mental will was gone, to the bars it went.......i stopped there as i was pretty gassed and happy with my performance, wanted to leave on a high note. From there i performed raw 315 doubles for downsets to get some volume in. Never thought i would see the day where 315 on the bar wasnt considered un-do-able. Progress Rules!! The rest of the workout was quite brutal as i finished it up relatively quick, every exercise had 30 seconds rest between, i basically supersetted the final 3 movements and am quite sore today as i type this, taking today off totally, i think i need it........till next time...Keep it Dark, Keep it Heavy!!!

You suck for missing that 375. Haha...Just kidding. You must be pumped. A shirted 400 is right around the corner. How much do you weight? Around 200? A double body-weight bench would be nice.

im hovering around 200-205, i want to stay within striking distance of 198, i got a push/pull meet in july im gonna do in ME so that is my goal weight... hope to get 400 soon, i swear if i can fire like i did on the 365 i'll be fine.....hows your back doing?

i thought it was going to be fine, since most of the pain went away, however i can't get comfortable at my desk, in my car.... if i move the wrong way i get a searing pain that nearly makes me gasp.

Nice work with the shirt, sounds like it is coming along nicely. How much pop are you getting out of the bottom?

Thanks Stinn, i've been getting decent pop out of the shirt, when i got everything to fire correctly the pop was much more evident. I notice when i dont get the legs to drive right i stall about 2 inches off the chest (right about where the shirt starts breaking down).
