    Thats pretty damn good for anybody. The bands take a bit of getting used to, they will make you a bit more wobbly than normal (especially if you have never benched shirted before). You will just have to remember to keep your lats flared.

    Congrats, awesome lift bro. I have my middle fingers on the rings for shirted, ring finger on rings for raw. Remember to also tuck your shoulder blades and sit yourself up on your traps, it will bring you up a little higher and help with your arch. For this to be most effective you need to keep your elbows in like I told mentioned before. You get some better form and you will be smoking 600 like it was nothing. Good luck bro.

    RageX dbl ply, 2" scooped neck, grid stitched, and 3" taken off the sleeves. Best damn shirt out there, weights just fly with this shirt. This is definately the fastest shirt I have ever used.

    Just want to say that Nick is a really cool guy in person, hard to imagine someone so powerful could be so humble......although piling 11 people including himself into a single limo is........well.....a tight fit.

    Definately a tight fit. It was great getting to meet all of the DS team. I was amazed at how great everybody was. I felt instantly welcome, and felt like old friends with everybody after the first night. Everybody was just incredible, and I could definately tell why they are working for DS.

    It was great getting to meet you, you were just as I pictured, except for looking like you were 18, lol.

    It was great getting to lift with Rob also, it gets boring lifting by yourself.

    not in college, it takes too much time. I would rather lift (and compete), study, and spend time with my gf (and I have very bad knees at the moment). I think things have worked out very well with just lifting, lol.

    I have been offered oppertunities to try out at NFL combines a couple times though.
