    I saw on WBB forum that you were getting a Overkill shirt? Is it poly or denim? Also how much does it cost?

    1/17/10
    second time in shirt, loosened up a tiny bit on the arms
    bar x10 over foam x2
    135x10
    185x5
    225x3
    250x2
    275 3 boardx1
    315x1
    315x1
    put on shirt
    2 board
    365x1
    405x1
    425x1
    tried to touch. diddnt quite make it but I got the press for
    435
    By far a PR for me.
    will have video shortly.
    the 365 I thought I was going to dump, started to roll my wrist on the bottom, and as soon as I started to yell to take it I felt it touch the board and started to go up. I thought my spotter grabbed it because it went so fast. I got up and asked him and he said no, "I thought I heard you yell to take it and then you shot it up" felt like nothing was there.
