I have a new bench shirt. It is a new model and one size smaller than the previous shirt. I started (well attempted) to use it 2 weeks ago, and I was just about to pull the pin last Sunday and go back to the larger, much more comfortable shirt that I have been benching in. I may not bench as much but at least I knew I could get a decent attempt in at comp. Well today was the 4th attempt and I finally got in under control. I only had one rep that fell awkwardly, but I was attempting to pull the line down in a different way. I still have 4 more days to bench in it before comp, and I am now absolutely confident that I will bench a great PB in just over 2 weeks. I am so relieved, but not 1/2 as relieved as my coach. I had no idea he was so worried about it until I saw the look on his face when I locked out 72.5kgs today. I need to work on ensuring I do a legal lift ie butt on the bench, no movement in the feet, but that is the fine tuning now.


In my last 3 competitons I have set and a new QLD bench press record for 56kg div, and my last record is going down!!!!!!
