    Arrow The Official Ov35 Bench Press Thread!

    May as well throw this one out there so we have all 3 major lifts represented.

    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!

    In....need the push.
    Not sure of current max atm. But would like to hit 315 or even more by end of year.

    Also guessing their will not be to many entries in the mens under 144 class...

    Probably right.... I think that guy Storm is under 144.... maybe I'll eliminate that one.

    Will wait for some more feedback for now.

    What the heck....could be fun. I'm in.

    I know this comp will bring out the bench monsters!

    My guess is that I'll be entering two weight classes; LHW and HW

    Bench day was yesterday, so I'll get something in next week or so. Estimated 1RM right now would be 350ish

    NSW knows my bench sucks. I have an anterior clavicle separation. But I'm always looking to improve on working with what I've got.

    Oh I'm pretty sure that we'll get some good interest. There are some real beasts out there too (Smelly Bull, Dave Wiggins).

    I'm hoping that DD will lead the charge for the ladies again... perhaps Lisa will be in as well? Dochappy? I'll start canvassing as we go.

    NSW knows that DD is a world-reknowned sandbagger but he appreciates her not scaring off the other ladies in the under 140lb category.

    The LAST thing that I'd want is for anyone to injure themselves trying to push too hard so take your time buddy. No worries.

    You're already pushing 225 for reps though so I'm sure that you'll be able to get something in.

    I may as well through my hat into the ring. Been considering a PL meet for a while, so now I'll have double incentive to work on my bench.

    So at 70 we should compete with guys at 35? I'm glad official BP comps are more fair than this one.

    Right you are. But I stayed out of them because they were slanted heavily toward the 30 somethings and made no attempt to deal fairly with those 40, 50, 60. or 70. This may be an Over 35, and I have loved it for more than a decade but it is repeatedly oriented only to the very young members.

    We all know there is a wide range of ages here. We should be trying to encourage more, not less participation in what we do. If you are 40 today and love lifting, you WILL be 70 tomorrow and probably still love lifting. But will you want to be categorically excluded by the then 30 somethings?

    ^^ That is a good point. Maybe there should be an age class in these comps?
