When You sign up with Bench Bozo you'll be just like Robert O. in weeks...sometimes days !!

It's easy and Fun !!

In the gym --SIT ON and DEFLATE..no, dare I say it....EXPLODE those Godamn exercise balls all the little fitness weasels 'build their core on'

Enjoy lifting more than anyone in the gym...how..??....learn to lift at least BODYWEIGHT in all the big exercises...then make sure your Bodyweight is more than any barbell or kettlebell or Hammer Strength apparatus in the gym...

Start this way.....

Eat a well Balanced diet thru out the day...

But at 6 PM ..turn on the TV ...make sure there are plenty of delicious Lay's Potato Chips...of course who could resist the Original Frito corn chips with jars and jars of Con Queso dip...it's the cheesiest ! --mmm that is some energy producing food for channel flipping...but where is the Yellow Tail Shiraz wine?? that will keep you relaxed and that appetite on a roll (there's that word again)
thru out the night...
of course you can add Ice Cream or cakes and cookies...but keep nibbling each and every nite..make sure you're laying down on the couch ...no sitting..that burns a few calories...oh yes...keep chanting Guacamole --Guacamole--Guacamole during commercials...soon you'll weigh more than you ever dreamed..and can start your new life as the worlds heaviest man....Hey, at least you'll be the "WORLD'S something"...not a nobody like you were when you fit in REGULAR peoples clothes...
hah...
you fooled those 'little people'

In the gym ONLY bench press!! do it twice a week make sure you stay on the gyms only BENCH for at least one hour and a half...I don't think ANYONE will dare to ask.."how many sets you have left"

I benched heavy today got in very good upper end work-- to 2 reps with 505--and 14 work sets in all, for Triceps and lock outs

Tonite I have set the Table for "Breaking Bad" "Simpsons" and "Family Guy"
till next time SNACK HEAVY !!

3 inches off the chest --they're called lockouts !

Wednesday my pin presses from chest level went to 400 pounds in weight...Today, I raised the bar 3 inches higher so that it was a 7 or 8 inch stroke to lockout...

The workout was 315X6 405X3 425X2 455 465
then I used small purple bands for reverse bands lockouts...
485X3 535X3 585X2 605 + 605 as singles...

It was one fine workout and felt good to lockout the heavy singles and doubles...many times with the Purples--I'd move my hands in and do close grips on the second reps...

rewarded myself with a foot long SUBWAY sandwich (downstairs from Gym) double meat turkey....

double meat turkey???

I am what I eat !!?

Wednesday's workout

I did the from chest level pin presses we've come to know so well...even when they wear a pair of novelty glasses and a false moustache.

The lifts were 135X12 225X8 315X6
365 385 390 395 and 400

Normally, the days workout would've been speed stuff with light weights and bands resisting the top end...but I felt like heavy singles...Sunday I may go heavy-ish again...not a shirt day tho !

Back with 580 in the rack !

Last heavy workout at Nancy's gym--I did some 'real bench presses' ala OPENERS...then did a partial 574 and missed a 580 at the top--this week--I made it !!
video
580 with the pins at '7' --in 2 weeks I'll do this with 600 !
and in weeks following that--I'll put the safety bars at '6' and touch my chest as I get closer to the meet. (this is OUR version of 'boards' due to lack of spotters/partners )

Tony Tomra was right when he commented last time that the weight touching one side then the other...a millisecond late..might've caused last sessions failure at the top...

This was a fun lift to do--the bellowing at the top of the success at 580 is a "gruntulated' I GOT IT !!


NOT ---"RAAARRGHPH GRACK"

which is what it sounds like...

The workout was numerous raw warm ups to 350 with attention on form--I'm trying to watch the bar...and put my head back to the bench at the press command...this is an infraction in many feds--but in WABDL it might help me touch the chest quicker...and then if I switch back to a USAPL meet I can go back to NOT lifting my head...I seem to use different muscles with this lifting the head maneuver...anyway it was just an experiment to see if this might help me get a quicker 'press' command.

The shirted work was a 507 legit bench --
then we put the 'pins' in at 7 and did 550 easily then the 580 went pretty well (as in video)

I did reverse band work with Bruce and Nancy and we all did lots of very good sets--keeping an eye on form and speed on the reps...
a good workout !
