    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If I saw a guy your size strutting around my gym in a bench shirt I would probably bust a gut laughing.

    My condition has gotten better so CNS recovery and workload capacity increased, so I don't need to use them anymore for when I do my 20-reppers (once in a while). Nor on my volume back down sets I do sometimes (405x10, 365x10, 315x10 after my heavy work).


    Yep, at least a 550 squat, 350 bench, and 600 deadlift by May 18th in the 198's. Best case scenario would be 570/365/625.

    And hopefully by year's end I'll be somewhere around 600/400/650.

    It's not really a size issue for me. But if I saw someone with Fuji's bench #'s using a bench shirt I would die of laughter on the spot.

    Would a bench shirt even work with my numbers? I don't think they make them with a thin enough fabric where I could touch my chest with the weight. Maybe like a shit single ply one from the 80s where they were just for injuries?


    Lol look at the 181lb wearing a bench shirt, does he even lift? Oh wait he's 3 boarding 660lb.

    Maybe, haven't barbell benched in months, since last february or something, only db incline bench. I don't see how much bench is related to this, i said I'd wear a bench shirt if I wanted to bench and my shoulders were too torn up to to be able to bench without one.

    what do you guys think is optimal for strength gains? 5x3, 3x5, 5x5? how long do you guys rest for strength sets? I do 3 minutes but I'd like to 5 however I really hate being that guy hogging the bench. I'd literally be on it for 30 minutes if I did 5 minute rests on 5 sets.

    2x5, 3x3, 3x2

    At a minimum 5 minutes between sets. Even if you "feel" ready by 2 or 3 minutes, wait the entire 5.
