When I first started bench pressing, I could do 95 lbs for a GRINDY single. 300 lbs is not much these days, many lifters in weight classes much lighter than mine can do it for multiple reps. But I’ll be damned if it didn’t feel special to hit this milestone FINALLY.

Easy 405x2 @6 today. This is normally my worst squat day of the week, so the fact that this moved this well today is awesome.

Well, first handout I’ve taken on a working set in a very long time and it was terrible.😂 panicked and forgot literally my entire setup, but we still good. 2.5kg above expectation on the day is always good. Team self handout or team lift off?

Coaching athletes on gameday is my favorite part of the sport. It’s also probably the most nerve racking! 😆 I was extremely happy to help Caolan and Seth at USA Powerlifting Bench Press Nationals this past weekend. Great job again guys!

Hurt everywhere after this weekend so took some extra light deload work. My man @roadtorecords has one of the most insane arches in the world so he gave me a few pointers on keeping mine consistent. Pretty good imo, now let’s add some weight!

190x1 again yesterday @6. Just gotta keep moving weights like this and we are in business for December.

Sometimes a little help from your friends is all you need. Thanks again @deadlifding @qtpowerlifting @teamgpt @kylepower
Never stop learning and be humble enough to understand you don’t always have all the answers- coach, athlete, weekend warrior, whatever. I’ve fixed a few people with my same tail tuck issue, but for some reason those cues never clicked for ME. A different perspective helped so much.

Probably wouldn’t have gotten the start command here for heels. But 120x3 moves nice today. Also lack of hair PR.

Some blurry deads. I was down on these yesterday but @evanchaffey talked me into liking them.

Some trouble keeping the weight in the right position today, just couldn’t really feel it in my feet. Ah well, 405x2 @ harder than it should have been. #sorryevan 😬

Last set of backdowns @365. These were amazingly easy. Yes I do indeed do reps over 2.
