    My Journey to a 450+ lbs bench

    Hey everyone!

    Figured I would share this video with you guys! My bench 400lbs, its not perfect but hey it will only get prettier over the next few weeks. I am on week 4 of my 10 week cycle. My goal is a 450+ Bench before week 10!

    <<< click here 400lbs bench >>>
    Wish me luck! And feel free to follow my progress and lifting... I am running a pretty sweet log. Check my signature !

    Dunno man, try again? heh 5th time is a charm!

    Most I have ever gotten is a 410, that as on a PH only cycle (superdrol). Before I started this cycle I took 3 weeks off from the gym to nurse an arm injury (which still is not healed). So, I walked into the gym on Day 1 with a bench of 315lbs for 6 reps--after which I was completely dead.
    Now I am on the beginning of week 4, and have 6 weeks more to go. 450lbs should be easy!

    Should check out my log bro!

    Great lift bro, and congrats on hitting that milestone..I do however have some constructive criticism..To help save your shoulders down the road, I would try to work on tucking your elbows, a bit more arch in your back to drive your traps into the bench which will help create a bit stronger base, and lastly bro is the drive with your legs, being more "tight" the legs shouldnt be bouncing. I mean no offense, just some things I noticed..still a great lift

    CK, if you bench like this, you could hit 410 tomorrow.

    Grats on the big lift.
