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 NickW!!!Blast it up in chicago!Thanks for all your
tips too!I ended up winning the best overall lifter at this little
meet this past weekend.
Good job, what did you lift?
I just got done lifting heavy raw. I got 635 w/ a pause, 645 touch and go ( a little bit of a pause, but no press command).
It was just a Small Local meet with only 18 lifters.Originally Posted by NickW
550lbs on bench and 595lbs Deadlift.Just started Bench press
powerlifting this year & Deadlifting past4-6 months.Got videos of it
posted in the PL forum here.Not nowhere close to what u r throwing
up!LOL!I will start putting elbows in and going lower and trying
to arch some.Do you go pretty wide with your grip too?600 RAW is
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.
Thanks Nick hey what kind of shirt you going to be using at the
chicago meet?Hope all goes well for you and Hope you Hit 800+!
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.
Nick, looks like we may not have the bench in time for this show. Which sucks....
I am out for the airport in 10.
That ****ing sucksOriginally Posted by Twin Peak
do pushups with a small family on your back, lol.
I may just have to sneak over to the animal booth, you think they would notice if slipped some bands on the bench and did 8 sets of 3? lol
sorry bro, you don't look very ninja-like
I am suprisingly stealthy for my size..........ok,that is a really bad lie, people see me coming from a mile away.

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.Originally Posted by uhockey
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.

Ever consider playing football?
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.
Dude you're a monster... for real... Congrats!
