    11/21/10 Big day for me today. Had a training partner bring in his old super duper phenom that he wore are 220.

    barx10x3
    135x10
    185x5
    225x5
    250x2
    275x1
    300x1 (new PR!)
    315x1 (yet another PR!)
    365x1 4 board
    put on the shirt and went to a 3 board for the first time in it
    405x3
    455x1
    500x1 This is a huge pr for me. The most weight I have ever taken is 465. I was on a mission to hit 500 and I nailed it today. The super phenom is great. Now to work it down and see if I can get it off the chest.

    I diddnt even do accessory work today. I was pretty fried after this one. Feels awesome though!!!

    I'd love to get a Super Duper Phenom, but they are just so expensive.

    Ill tell you its definitely a different feel. Way to much money though. I talked to Rudy last night and we decided that I outgrew my shirt and it doesnt fit right any more. I cant even come close to getting it all the way up my arms, os my tris take all the weight and I dont get as much over my chest like the phenom. so Im going to order a new overkill but not before I try and bench 500 in the SDP

    Hopefully I'll get mine up in the mid 400's or so next year. I'm gonna order me a 2ply Rage X or either a tighter double denim shirt after the first of the year.

    nice, I wanted to send you my overkill but after talking to you I realized it wouldnt fit, I couldnt get it up my arms and that was my problem, and yours are bigger than mine. I liked the rage x, probably stops like a denim but has way more top end carry over. I bet you could put another 50 lbs on your bench with the right shirt.

    warm up barx10
    135x5x2
    225x3
    we took a black band and stretched it under the bench and hooked the ends over the bar. all sets from here are with black band. with the bar in the rack and the band hooked, Rob at 215 could stand on it and be supported.
    135x3
    185x3
    225x3
    275x3 3 board
    315x1 4board
    315x1 4 board, with a little help.

    tricep pressdowns, one handed
    100x9x3
    overhead tricep extensions
    140x15x3
    reverse curls (ez curl attachment from high cable for triceps)
    100x10
    stack 180 maybe x9x2

    bench day. Did a lot of liftoffs today and cut off some lifting because I was sore from lifting off.
    barx10
    135x8
    185x5
    225x5
    275x5
    315x2
    335x1 needed a little bump a few inches off the chest
    back to 315 to try a double, first good, needed help on the second.
    315x5 off 3 board.

    That was about it.
