    My best barbell bench was 305 @ 195ish. I don't train flat bb anymore though.

    Best incline dumbbell was 205's x 10 so far. No spotter ever.

    ^^^ you might want to rethink the "no spotter ever" thing. Only cuz if you get into trouble and no one is keepin a eye on you things can get much worse then they need be... Also a stop from time to time will push you much further then without one. My point is if your think "maybe I can get one more maybe...." Your more Likly not to try if there is not spot. The last fue reps are where progress is made not the reps that move easy.

    just sayin

    Not bragging or anything, just stating. Im not against having a spotter. On heavy BB I would grab someone.

    If I could regularly rely on one, I would use it as a tool. But, if only getting a spot from random people, eh no thanks. With dumbells I can always dump them if need be.

    Also said that because ive never really been able to get those "forced reps". I do think I would be a stronger presser if I regularly had a consistent spotter no doubt.

    Ive found sometimes not having a spotter makes you train smarter. Failing isnt super smart anyway, having a spotter typically "causes" me to fail more often lol.

    Don't use the spotter a crush use them to help you when you get in trouble. I will regularly ask people that I know we're going to mess up to spot me so that way pushes me harder making me know that I have to do this on my own. And then if I do get in trouble the spotter to help.

    I recently in the past few weeks watched a 13 yr old bench 275 lbs for 2 reps..were they perfect..defiantly not legal meet lifts but would clearly fall into touch and go..mind you this kid is 6'2" 265 lbs at 13 yrs old..and has only been lifting weights since entering 7th grade last year for football..so a year and a half..i don't get too impressed but i was by that..

    I was just lookin up numbers (PL) and the number I put up at my last meet where I went 5 for 9, all my records still stand. I think that kinda odd. Those numbers where Definitely not my best... Hmmm... Kind of makes me think about doing another one.

    Having goals is the best way for me to stay motivated. I imagine doing something like that will get you more focused brother.

    Yeah, the only reason I ever really pl'd is not because I loved it it was because I was good at it and in turn made me start to like it and really get into it which put me in this mind set that even though I love being strong I still want to look good and not be the "norm" in the PLn world... Nowadays there more guys that are leaner and strong I like to say I'm one of them... Back to my point, I love being strong so I love PLn. It's in my blood...

    Not sure when I will do one but I'm gettin geeked up just thinkin about goin back and makin the records I put up 3 years ago (which still stand today) larger.
