      Very pleased with today.  I was able to correct issues directly after bad hits.  Bending every day is allowing me to dial in better. Red in IMPs.  4 hits.   "Q" 0-1 DR @ 8 3/8" in 1.5/1 IMPs. I know this looks identical, but what I'm not detailing is how many hits I'm using the 1.5s and how many singles.  At this point I still need the 1.5s to get over the hump with the kink.  That said...I used to use them for much more than that.  I'm setting micro PRs daily.  It really helps keep me motivated.   I think a lot of us gloss over micro PRs because they aren't necessarily newsworthy...but they definitely add up.

      I absolutely agree that it is still very impressive to push that amount of weight.  And of course he is undoubtedly super strong on raw bench too.  I have seen fat pads unbraced steel bending compared with equipped benching.  And in a way it's accurate.  You can definitely perform a much harder bend with fat pads than without.  Where the comparison fails is the fact that with fat pads easy bars can still be bent.  The same guy who can bend a KOAB in fat pads can wrap up an IronMind White Nail a few minutes later and demolish it in the same fat pads he used for the KOAB.  Whereas the 1,115lb equipped bencher can't bench the empty bar because he can't get it to touch his chest.  In fact, it's unlikely he could get even 500lbs to touch his chest.

      I've never been a fan of equipped lifting, but putting 1000 pounds over your face is quite the feat no matter what assistance you have. Especially insane when you realize this is a tad heavier than Thors recent deadlift record. I'll be the first one to laugh at some idiot in multiply barely pushing 3 plates but this is a few levels past that and still extremely impressive.

      I have never been a fan of equipped benching records.  Those shirts were ridiculous even 20 years ago.  Now they are comical.  Some guys claim to use bench shirts so they can still bench around their injuries.  I would say to that - don't bench at all.  Problem solved.  If your shoulders are held together with bubble gum and willpower (like mine) it's a pretty simple choice to not tempt fate by putting a bunch of pressure on them from benching or bending...
