Max Effort Bench Press

Since the competition in November I've been really wanting to fine tune my gear. I was looking at my two Titan bench shirts and noticed that my Fury is a size 52 and my F6 is a size 56. Odd. I decided to try the Fury today to see if it would make a big difference. Here's how it went.

Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 275lbs/3 reps.
*put on Titan Fury*
Bench Press - 315lbs/3 reps (no touch), 365lbs/3 reps (no touch), 385lbs/single.
Close Grip Bench Press - 4 sets/6 reps/185, 225, 225, 225lbs.
Bent Over Barbell Rows - 4 sets/6 reps/225, 245, 275, 295lbs.

I've decided that I like the F6 shirt better but I would like to try one size smaller. The CGB felt awesome! I haven't tried bent over rows for quite some time so I was surprised how much weight I could do. 295lbs was feeling heavy the last two reps. I used my belt and straps on the BOR's. Another great work out.
