Shirt work 4/29

We had enough people to spot this weekend so I decided to put on my bench shirt for the first time since the UGSS at elitefts. The video from that day is below.



I am a 3-4 pounds lighter but I think it is mostly body fat that I have dropped.  This to me shows I need to get in my shirt more often. I also think a new shirt, same size minus the grid stitch might be better.  The cleaner I get it down the faster my press tends to be.

Raw work
225x3
275x3
310x1
335x1

3 board 360x1
add shirt
399x3 - very ugly but only 405 and no where close to touching.
449x3 much better
471x2 and missed on 3rd
500x a very ugly 1

I finished up with jm press 155 3x5
neutral grip pull ups 3x5

If I decide to do a meet in June I need to get this ironed out real fast. I feel the strength is there for a pr but I need it dialed in an get 500+ in my hands for the next few weeks.

Hey, Matt. What shirt are you thinking of moving into? Good to see you back at it.

This is a 2ply bash with grid stitching that I got from someone else. I have a single ply that I really like. I will stay with the same size 2 ply bash but it will be new and no grid stitching. This one is pretty old so I am hoping for an easier touch and more pop. I think there is more left in this shirt but I wear it at my throat and still not touching at about 95% of my best. Thanks for checking it out.
