420lb Bench Press @ 220lb Body Weight.

So glad I purchased this bench press just before the quarantine started. Enjoying some quality time with it. Hit 420lbs the other day. I can’t post a link to the video so you have to look up Strong Mike on YouTube. Thanks for your support. If you feel I deserve it, please like and subscribe.

DL: Can I have 45cm, 5k olympic plates on the outside and heavier smallers inside?

I have heard that this will potentially put too much load on the largest plates, but I will risk it for the short term until I can afford more higher quality plates! Will it affect my actual lift though? I mean.. I wont be doing more than 150k again any time soon. Thankyou. I am urgently...

Accessories for sumo deadlift

I'm in the process of switching to sumo but this potentially changes all my deadlift accessory work. I've been doing deficit RDL, hyper extension and hamstring curls. I programmed those in to help with conventional but maybe they aren't the best options now. Any thoughts ?
