Ha. I curl 405 grams daily. Weak sauce sir
Be careful with the maxouts. A few years ago, I was very excited to be able to bench 405. So, two weeks after I hit that max (and easily), I tried for two reps. On my second rep, an intense pain pounded my skull. Thankfully, I had a good spotter to help me set the bar back, because the second it was I fell down into the fetal position on the ground. The pain was excrutiating. For at least 30 minutes, I had blinding pain in my head. I had a pretty bad headache for several more hours afterward.
The next day I tried a normal bicep workout. About halfway into my first set, the pain returned. It didn't force me into the fetal position, but I had to just sit there with pain rocking my skull. For the next several days, weird things like urinating would trigger more moderate versions of the pain. It was horrible. I went to the university medical center and was seen by one of the doctors for the football team.
He told me I had "weight-lifter's headache." He said that too much isn't known about it, but that it does happen. It is often thought to be a pinched nerve. Unfortunately, there was nothing he could really do for it. It has to fix itself essentially.
Thankfully, I found that I could keep working out if I kept the weights very low and didn't exert myself. After about a month, it finally went away entirely and I was able to resume my normal lifting. But I NEVER max out anymore. I limit myself to a weight where I can do at least 4 reps per set, preferably 5, and I haven't a reoccurence.
In short, be careful!

Good for you, first time to hit 4 plates? I got 451 RAW my last meet about 2 months ago for a PR and was pretty happy with self Competing this coming Sunday and hoping to be in the 460's. If wondering, 5'9" 198lbs. And yes I compete in drug tested meets.
Hell of a lift, EWS. BTW this is Luvnthemouth.
If you weren't dry humping the air I'd be impressed. It looked like Alessandra Ambrosio was hovering above you and you were going for a tactical insertion.
Work on your form, and you will hit 405 easily. With better form I think you could get 455. Great Lift though.
Might only be 50lbs But there is a big jump from 405 to 455. Can't view video on phone but is it a pause rep or is this touch and go gym lift? Pause lift is a big difference as well
Touch and go with a touch of reverse cowgirl pelvic thrusting.
Can be even tougher given the size of partner
What's up Luv? Long time no see.
Btw, thanks to you and Bama Boz. My form isn't perfect, but I'm not going to a competition any time soon. Its more just for fun.

I am not talking about a paused rep. With that form, he wouldn't be good at pausing anyways.
I'm just busting your balls, bromosexual.
I know it. I haven't gotten mad at you since our Bunker days. I could go for some reverse cowgirl BTW.
I'll preface for both you guys. Not judging anyone and to each there own. I asked cause I can't view video. Great lift as anyone that can get 4 plates is a lot of weight. Good luck and keep at it
That's been a long time. How did I anger you there?
Since you cant see the video, It was a bodybuilder form bench, not a Powerlifter form bench.
It was one of your first posts. It had something to do with Bama. I think that was pre- Saban
Thanks, good luck on traIning and stay healthy
What should I change? Im only 22 and haven't been lifting but for about 5 years. I have a lot to learn. Im seriously up for suggestions.
I'll watch tomorrow and offer a few suggestions if any since I started lifting at a higher level and always try to learn from guys who have been doing longer. Many times minor tweaks can make a big difference. I am not bragging or chest thumping. I have been fortunate to be good at lifting and train hard. Could post or email videos of last meet if interested at all??
Post 'em if you don't mind. If not I will send you my email. Thanks BTW. Im relatively naturally strong, but I haven't had any formal training at all.
Feel free to shoot me a PM,
Just gonna go on record and declare war on EWS
Not going to lie, you don't look like you can bench 405. Good job though.
I've put up 405 a few times in the past. Then I got a GF, now i'm married and lucky if I can put up 350.
