    bench

    tbh, after warming up i just did what i was told, more on that later

    work
    185x2x3
    205x2x3
    225x3
    245x3 2 board
    265x2 2 board
    295x1 2 board

    assistance
    vbar pushdowns 60x5x10 SS w facepulls 60x5x10 - different machine, way less than what i was doing at the old gym

    thoughts:

    holy fck, that's all i can say after today. apparently i was training w 2 world champions today, tim hensly (sp?), benches 760 at 198 - i got a vid of him today 660x2 to a 1 board. the 148 lb filipino kid is apparently a fcking freak of nature: totals >1800 at 148. i got a vid of him pressing 445, the kid squats 800 and pulls 600. they squat sunday and i'm gonna go check them out and do some assistance work. my fcking god. there was another dude pressing 580 to a 1 board for 3. just incredible. the guys couldn't have been nicer, i was just trying to stay out of the way - for obv reasons they're picky who hands off and spots them.

    after i did the 225x3, the dude, i forget his name, just told me what to load. i was like...ok, and just did it. i told him i've never pressed to a board before and he said 'don't worry about it.' only a fool wouldn't listen to a >600 lb bencher. when the big boys were getting up there, everyone int he gym stopped what they were doing to watch. it was really cool.

    tried to get into the shirt today but couldn't, i'm going to cut about 3/8 inch off the sleeves. my wife knows a guy who is a tailor, he'll have the heavy duty thread and the machine to do it. i knew i was gonna have to get it altered. now for the funny part: as soon as i took my shirt out of my bag i literally got heckled by jj and a couple other guys. come to find out there's not a metal shirt in the gym: the filipino kid is sponsored by overkill shirts, and clay said there's about 4 guys sponsored by inzer.

    i think i got 20 lbs stronger just walking in that place.

    vids in a minute, i don't have any of me today. new guy doesn't ask people to vid him...

    sean, everything was happening pretty fast, there was no screwing around: be ready when it's your turn.

    i was a little timid with them today. i got them all up easy, but i was searching for the board. next time i know how much the board is gonna go down, and just wait for the press command. everyone gets one, every rep.

    it was wild: when the weight got >500, big clay came over and was coaching everyone up and doing the hand offs. it was awesome to watch these guys work.

    That's pretty sweet, man. I know you're holding off on suiting up for squats, but what about deadlift?
