I've got a video of a recent 310 for 8 (this morning) on the bench I can email it to you I'm a technological failure I've got no idea how to get a video somewhere.
That was definitely a motivation check! Thanks Admin! Would love to see vids on members too, hey birds of a feather flock together right. Something that might have increased ratings on that show and views here is a most weight per lb class, so if you can squat 800 lbs at 200 lbs then that's like squatting 1200 at 300 in my eyes, especially without wraps.
Dude are you serious!?I recently hung out with Donnie Thompson. What stuck out in my head was when he said that he could feel his femurs flexing when he took his 1300lb squat attempt.
I've felt my forearms feel like they were bending and going to snap when I was first benching over 800....
Absolutely. I started handling mid 7s in the bench while raw benching in the upper 400s. I did a raw training cycle and got my press up to the mid 500s... when I got back in the shirt I had the strength for 800 but very quickly found that you need the time under big weight to move big weight. That's why rep calculators are bullshit. Being able to triple 500 raw doesn't make my bones or joints strong enough to hold 800+..... that's the part that guys who bash gear don't get. There is no equivalent.Dude are you serious!?
Your arms felt like they were bending?
