Last heavy bench day for James Strickland @ 10 days out with a bit more than a week to go now until his meet. He’s looking to be the lightest man to bench 700lbs but going off the footage his last heavy day did not go to plan.
Looked like misses with 640lbs, then 660 “Gym PR” and 675lbs tho he says he just stalled a bit and I’m assuming he feels his spotter didn’t help him. I think that’s just the way his bench is with the close grip. There’s a hard sticking point midway thru and there’s no room for error bar path wise.
Anyways he says he is happy with the results but I’m damn well worried for him. Let’s send him some good bench vibes leading into the meet.
Hopefully his programming is on point so that he is at the peak (pun intended) of his powers going into the meet.
