Benching


#1

Today I competed in a benchpress meet over here.

I started working out December 04, so I quite satisfied with my progress so far.
It was no official meet, just a cup, but I am quite happy with the outcome:
My plan was to press 105kg(231lbs) and I did 107,5(236.5lbs) and I placed first of 5 competitors in the Juniors class -67.5kg

My bodyweight was 65.2kg(143lbs).

By the way... any comments on technique?
Except for getting a bigger arch, which is unfortunatelly not too easy..

Im using an old, loose Blast Shirt.

Just asking a question...

What was the point of wearing a loose bench shirt?

I got this one from a teammate, and I think it was a good thing to get used to shirtbenching.
