Funny thing is I tried 475 today. Right when I got it off the rack the entire bar fell right on my chest. Surprisingly it didnt hurt. Was a bit of a surprise but I was left unscathed Thank G-d I didnt break my sternum or ribs.
Congrats on the new bench press record! Glad you didn't break yourself.
You are too modest, though I guess that is a good quality. We are about the same bodyweight and I am exactly half your strength on most exercises! Check out the Vegan Strength Table on Veganfitness http://www.veganfitness.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2438&start=0 There are big guys there, even a pro bodybuilder and your bench far surpasses any of them!
Thanks a lot for the kind words bro. You should make an online training journal here mate, it would be great to see how you are doing and you know a lot there is to bodybuilding. Also if I am stronger in some aspects than you, I bet you can beat me in some too. For example I rarely squat and I never do deadlifts, so I bet you can easily surpass me in those mate. Thanks for that site, those dudes have good lifts, but I am still heavier than them so the bench over them really doesnt count
