no surprise he's lifting with an Inzer Rage-X. i only bench with a Titan F6 as they give the best guarantees against blowouts. also its an amazingly good shirt. although i guess there are no guarantees with any shirts, but thats what your team of spotters is for. choose wisely.

Those are extremely thick and tight shirts that help you press more weight. You have to train benching with a shirt to get the most benefit from it though.
You probably need 150lbs on the bar alone to get your arms down :lol:
No one said it would be easy.
