    He looks like he's from the Midwest like us lol

    He looked pretty beat. It the 3rd day of the meet. I went up to him and said thanks for putting an awesome meet together and he initiated a handshake. He's the epitome of "the fat powerlifter" Short, round, and stalky. His hair was nuts. My dad thought that everyone there had beards because the Red Sox grew them, or PLers are "biker guys"

    Hahahaha. In fairness to your dad, the biker/bald/beard is idealized and perpetuated by SO MANY of us. Gene definitely seemed like a tubby one. But once I found out he squatted big weight and wasn't only a equipped bench kinda guy, I had to give him respect. Also gotta give him a lot of respect for what he's doing with RPS.

    I could only imagine what he went through being meet director for three days in a row. Could you imagine touring around the country judging and running powerlifting meets? I mean, God. I love powerlifting, but not as much as he does. I'd get sick of that dog and pony show.

  3. Week 7 Rep Bench

    315x3x5 PR for repeating the effort!

    Pin Press
    315x2
    335x1

    Lilly Pause
    295x5,4

    JM Press
    185x6x2
    135x8 (this was almost a skullcrusher)

    Pull ups
    5x5

    Lat Pulldown

    High Pulley Row

    Facepull

    Delt Raises

    Don't forget curls

    Everything felt freaking feather light today! Can't explain it. Well, it's easily explained, but hard to believe.

    I really have to thank you guys for the discussion about pausing on benches. I'm pausing more and more often and I'm downright comfy on my chest these days.

    Decided to stick to the schedule and not push anything, so that I can come into the meet feeling fantastic.

    It's like Captain Kirk said, all I have to do to is not fukk up for thirty seconds, and I'll have a new bench PR in 3.85 weeks.

  8. Thanks guys. They were pretty easy, except for #4 and #5 of set 3. I should have tried to be more explosive today, but I REALLY wanted three sets of five. So bad I could taste it.

  10. Nice, controlled reps. Good work.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  11. Anybody want to bench press more in their next meet than they did in their last meet? Here's a good article to get you started:

  12. That's a great read herder. I agree that most guys bench too wide. At worlds I can only remember a couple raw guys that benched narrowish grip. It's so much easier on the shoulders too...

    A narrower grip?

    Puts more emphasis on the triceps. Less internal rotation too = easier on the shoulders...

    I was under the impression it was more shoulder rotation

    Less rotation total wide but much more pressure IMO

    Edit: referring to a wide grip

    The angle of the humerus with a wide grip puts more internal rotation on the joint. With a narrower grip the angle of the humerus is less severe...

  18. I bench relatively narrow for those reasons; less shoulder pressure & pain.

    That, and I'm really weak wide. :emb:

    Regardless of the science mumbo jumbo, all you have to do is take your 1RM with a close grip and then take it with your pointers on the power rings and ask yourself "Which one made my shoulders feel like ass?"

    I have had to ask this question on many occasions. It wasn't long ago that I would have to take an impromptu skip day one or two bench sessions a month because I would get crushed by one of my warmups. Then I moved my hands in.

    Sounds like somebody's gotta start doing sets of 10 with a wide grip, a la Louie!

  21. Here's my video for the day. Sorry for the language, I was pissed off about the previous sets and some other sets. I promise I was having an excellent day until I started squatting.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkRYak734MA

    Form was average at best, which is miles ahead of the rest of the sets. If I feel like it, I'll upload my two beltless PR singles. 425 looks like I was squatting on a ****ing Swiss ball, 435 looks much better.

    True. I like close grip Bc it hurts a lot less if at all. But Dave Tate talks abit about it in so you think you can bench, and he advocates a wider grip. At least that's what I got from him talking about the more shoulder rotation on narrow and comparing to wider.

    Dave Tate was an equipped powerlifter and his form cues are for equipped powerlifters. Multi-ply to be specific. You can put your hands wherever you want with a bench press shirt and your shoulders won't hurt. Equipped powerlifting birthed an innumerable amount of incorrect cues for raw lifters/general population.

  25. Lol I love it.

    Good set homey, like Sean said, tiny wink but damn you hit fast ass reps. Easy money.
