Good work man! Def. think you could do more...looked easy.
That looks like a decent rig you are working on there, what kind is it and how much did it cost if you don't mind me askin'?
Yah, no offense if you were a powerlifter you would in no way have counted that as a good lift. You basically come down and then halfway down lose all eccentric control, slam it into your chest and bounce it off. This is why half way down you pick up speed and then halfway up you stall it. Next time try lowering it under control, pausing at the chest and pressing up. This prevents this type of cheating. I can easily bounce heavier weight than that off my chest, but in terms of controlled paused reps 320 is my max. I really hope people don't call this good form just because it touched the chest, this type of rep would not be called a good lift in our gym by either strongmen, bodybuilders or powerlifters.
good job bro hell of lot more than me
Either way, its more than I can do haha. Jus outta curiosity, why is your spotter holding the shirt over his nose? Do you stink? Eh,Eh?????
Nice lift. That was a pretty decent touch n go lift, KTW. The dude said he wasn't a PLer in the title.
Please start wrapping your thumb around the bar, though. Do you know how many youtube vids their are of dudes that drop the bar on their chest?
looked good brother!work on getting some good form and 400 is right around the corner!keep hittin the weights hard man!
decent lift bud.
Take some advice from KTW, he made good points that affect all of us.
what is your spotter covering his nose for? haha

Spotter covering his face becuase he dosnt want his face on the web.
Oh, okay gotcha. Wasn't sure if maybe you had a little too much garlic and onions
And yeah as the title says I dont train for strength, im a bodybuilder but got some good strength when it comes to my chest and biceps.
Ktw does have a point. You did bring it down pretty fast, doesn't look that controlled. I did "lol" pretty hard when i saw the last half second with the face expression and arms going up. Epic!
We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
Good lift, good song, great artist.
Yeah man, Alexander is right that was barely bounced. I think you (KTW) are being a little overly critical, you need to have some pretty good strength regardless to bench 350, period. As for struggling half way up, the guy did say he was maxing, attempting a weight near the limits of his capabilities, so I don't see why that is so criminal. You've never seen anyone struggle with a weight @ a powerlifting meet? You gave some good advice about the grip and controlling the weight more, but in no way would I say that was a ****ty bounced cheating rep...
I agree. Nice work bounced or not. NO it wouldnt count in a meet but thats beyond the point. Hell many powerlifter hit a TON of PR bench marks and dont pause the weight he first time. Yes they are two different lifts paused and bump and go but none the less anice lift.
I think if you learn how to get TIGHT you will have that w3eight paused no problem and more as well you'll stay healthy by learning how to get tight
keep it up and 2 x body weight is right around the corner.
