Red SS BP:

225 x5
205 x 7
185 x 10
155 x 12
135 x 16

@Tommy J. also. (Tried linking your vid but couldn’t.) Strong work with the slingshot guys. I have the red one and haven’t used it in a while. I definitely plan to bust it out once my regular press strength is back

fwiw, while I’m here I’ll mention that my previous best reps on 3 plates in the SS was only 2 reps. And that same week my raw max was 310.

Wow, huge PR!

Looks like your right? Side (left in video) is lagging a bit behind in this video and the last. Has it always been that way or was there a shoulder injury at one point?

That is a crazy wide grip, no way could I take that grip in my advancing age lmao

I think you're right. We should move to disallow his cheater wide grip at the next Illuminati meeting.

Agreed. But if he really is on a weight loss plan and his strength takes a proportionate hit, I move to allow him into our inner circle of bench press domination, that is we let him join the race.

I take a super close grip for a bigger guy. I hurt my shoulder a couple times when I went wider

I thought he already joined a few pages back. He's in for life whether he wants it or not.

Gracie. With regards to the PR, I actually havent tried reps on 3 plates in the SS since I did the 2 SS reps before. It’s been almost a year since then. Everything was in my old bench and thread, that is now unfortunately gone.. For time reference, it was the same week Andrew Dube posted his 310 bench in his workout log.
