Now That's Determination!


You gotta admire (and laugh at) my cousins innovative tactics to lift more weight on his bench - the bags are filled with dumbells!


I dig it!Keep on training hard.All the best to him.


Man I used to have one of those home weight sets! It only came with like 125lbs of total weight so I got some real plates for it and loaded up like 210 for grins one day, I kid you not the bench itself started to buckle! What a piece of shit! That's when I decided to join a gym!


I used a broomstick with paint cans and weights on it when I was 13.


Very innovative!
I would have tried to slide the extra weight closer to the inside most plate though; just for better balance.
