    Thanks for info. I'll try it

    Open to ideas as to how things should run but here's how I see it.....

    - must be Flat BB Bench only (using an OLY bar). No Incline Bench, Decline Bench or DBs.
    - Raw lifts only. No shirted benching. (wrist wraps are OK though)
    - obviously can be either gym or competition lifts.
    - press can be either paused or TnG (Touch N Go) but no bouncing.
    - spotters can help with racking/unracking only. Full press must be done with no assistance.



    Classes:

    - Ladies

    1st group Up to 124lbs

    2nd group 125-145lbs

    3rd group 146lbs and over



    - Men's

    1st group up to 175lbs
    * djflex: 255 @ 174
    * boathead: 235 @ 168

    2nd group 176 - 210
    * CaptChip40: 305 @ 176
    * korr: 303 @ 181
    * litljay: 295 @ 192

    3rd group 211- 240
    * OS: 335 @ 216

    4th group 241 and over
    * nvr: 275 @ 242



    - Masters Class (60+ in age)




    The winner of each class will be the lifter who posts a vid of the heaviest completed lift.

    In the event of a tie, the lighter lifter of the two will win



    Like the other comps. this will run until the end of the year (Dec. 31st, 2011) and cut-off for new entries will be Nov. 1st. All entries must be 1-rep and caught on vid. All vids between the dates of this month (July) until the end of Dec. 2011.

    Hopefully winners of each class would get mod reps.... if not then just bragging rights.

    Something like that?

    Certainly accepting suggestions from anyone else who has input!

    We should freshen this up for 2017.

    I weight 171 and trying to get down to 160. I did it last summer so it's not completely impossible.

    I've always been very strong on bench press. It's one thing I am really good at. My Other lifts pale in comparison. I have a video of doing 315 twice. I recorded it just for fun but I can try to upload it

    Solid lift. 425 might be too low by the end of the year.
    As i get older I am realizing i have to get while the gettings good. I can put stats and PR's up here all day long. But, the main concepts with my workouts....

    Really good. You will easily get 425 or more by year end.

    Solid lift. I know how you feel, though. Since I Periodize, I change up too often to let my bench increase much lately. As you know, strength suffers. But, only for that lift. Keep going.

    Dieting as long as I have has taken its toll on my strength levels. It's a mindfuk seeing weights you used to own now be a struggle. Im still grinding though.

    I like benching when not dieting but now it sucks. I'm with ya and actually feeling this way about lifting heavy for me in general. I forgot what it's like to not feel beat up.

    Hopefully gravity is turned down for all of you guys/gals in Utica in ten days. Some big lifts on the menu! I'd be thrilled to see you get that tree-fiddy on the platform.

    I've got my Son doing dumbells only, shoulders bothering him and he needs to swing a baseball bat and pitch. Convinced BB BP is only good for BB BP.

    Feeling strong for the 350 attempt. Elbows good, form good, but will be an "attempt" fo sho, never even unracked that over my face.

    Still been testing my shoulder, Bad video angle but you can see if ya look close it does come to my chest. Wife just decided to grab it last minute. 375X1 and it went pretty easy. Pretty happy to see the strength gains while having dropped 30 pounds in the last few months. Guess I had some good energy stored in that fat Hope to be 405+ again by October.

    My journal, not detailed, but heck I never keep track of much anyhow. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121196291&p=863931421#post863931421

    I'd been using Polishball's routine for bench, hit 385 (unrecorded of course). now I have some mental block since I've failed at it sometimes. but posting this to show not every lift is a bad one and gotta learn from every miss
