    Wayne VanNostrand Repping 585!

    One our nation's top open and master bench pressers,

    Big Wayne seems to be in tip top shape hitting 585 for a triple!

    "Healthy and feeling great 585 x 3"

    Bench shirt help!

    I purchased a new bench shirt. So tight I can't get my arms to even grab the bar. But a bigger guy in my gym has same kind of shirt. A size smaller and uses it in meets. Is it because my shirts brand new. It's a triple
    Ply SDP. What can be done to break it in considering I can't even use it yet.

    SBD-USA Athlete, Shawn Bellon raw pause squats 735 at 253 lbs

    Back is steadily improving and less pain overall.

    Happiest with the grind than the depth which was a little high.

    54 Year Old Master SHW Bench Presses 565 Raw for Christmas present to himself! :)

    Kole Carter 54 year old Master SHW Raw Bench Presser did an easy 565 raw bench press at Royal Barbell tonight for a Christmas present to himself. Followed by a 585 pound triple with his slingshot. 35 pounds away from the 600 pound raw bench press goal. Sorry no video but my phone was busy pumping music to my brain. Luckily I had 7 witnesses. Super easy 565. 600 will be crushed in 2017! The other lifters thought I was going to do a double with the 565 it went up so smooth. I am trying to catch up with my friend James who is hitting 633 raw these days!
