Bench Press in Gear!!!

A few weeks ago I bought a new bench press shirt from a friend of mine. I have always wanted to try an Titan Super Katana A/S and tonight was the night.

Warm Up
Light Stretching and Shoulder Mobility.
Bench Press - 135lbs/10 reps, 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/4 dynamic reps, 315lbs/4 reps, 365lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Bench Press (in bench shirt) - 365lbs/3 board/2 reps, 405lbs/3 board/2 reps, 440lbs/3 board/2 reps, 455lbs/3 board/2 reps, 455lbs/2 board/2 reps.
365lbs couldn't even touch 3 board. 455lbs touched 3 board no problem but was a struggle to reach 2 board. Had not problem pressing any of the weights.

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 3 sets/4 reps/315lbs, 3 sets/3 reps/315lbs.

Tonight felt great for my first time back into a bench shirt. My lovely wife helped me get into the shirt, did my shirt adjustments, and handed off the bar. My son handled the boards and my daughter filmed the heavier lifts. I really like this bench shirt. It is comfortable and doesn't ride up like my F6 or Fury. I strongly believe this shirt will lead me to 500lbs at my next competition.
