I suck at Flat benching. I put up 225 for 1 yesterday.

I do a lot better with Dumbbells.

Ill put up some very unimpressive numbers for all you greek gods to laugh at. I weigh in at 170 and currently am lifting like 3x8 sets of 175. I used to work out quite frequently but am just getting back in the mix of things this week after a 4 month hiatus. My highest was 230 twice and i remember being so excited, aww the good ol' days.

I always found bench press reduces my fitness level; i prefer to workout my shoulders and back - not even the biceps;

i can do 5 reps of 70kg (155lbs for you americans). i've not tried anything higher yet because i work out alone in my house. i failed a set of 67.5kg a couple of weeks ago and it totally shook my confidence. i try to keep it at a weight im comfortable with now because failing is pretty scary without a spotter.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

I've never understood the problem here, 1rm yes, but besides that, you just roll the bar onto your hips, situp and scoot out from under it. Unless your using a bitchload of weight getting pinned under the bar shouldn't be a problem.
