2 plate bench!13316

TyrannosaurusFlex private msg quote post Address this user
Yesterday I finally achieved my long-term goal of a two plate bench (220 lb/100 kg), and it felt better than anything in a loooong time!

I know it's not big weight compared to what you guys are doing (I really am insanely weak for my size/weight, but it meant a lot to me! And one day I'll be on your level!

Just wanted to share with the SS family!

Yeah dude, I'm feeling you. Actually, once I got the 220 it felt easy, but when I went for another one there was just no way in hell, haha. I'll get there eventually though. And thank you!

195 cm/6'5"
100 kg/220 lbs

What I mean, though, is that I look like I should be able to lift more. Oh well, I guess it will come in time.

@Arnoe we all start somewhere and this is an awesome milestone. I started with a max less than 95 pounds and I can clearly remember hitting some of these milestones. Very proud of you!

Mike should create a badge for this kind of thing! Very nicely done!
