Tonight I finally hit a double body weight raw squat. This morning I weighed 135 and this evening I hit 270 followed by 225 for 5 - no belt. Both of these have been goals for a while.

That is some serious raw strength. Great work.

Thanks. I was over the moon. I compete single ply so hadn't trained pure raw in quite a while. Not bad for 47 right?

i got the bright idea today to see if it was possible to overhead press using the Titan Ram and/or Slingshot. so i warmed up to my BW on overhead press and then threw on the Titan Ram first. It took a little getting used to but after a couple sets it was very comfortable and gave a good bit of pop off the chest. I found that pushing it up to the armpits and being sure to arch hard and taking a fairly narrow grip was much more comfortable. As for the slingshot, because of how it's designed, it didn't transfer well to overhead pressing for me. it sticks out in line with your arms until the bar gets close to the chest and then lays down. this made it hard to press and the bar drifted away from you. the Titan lays tight against the chest the whole time much like a real bench shirt and was much more natural. I'll be sticking with it. I hit an easy 275, then 295 and 315 for 4 with it. i got one hell of a shoulder pump and tricep pump from it. I"m calling them "Meat presses" since i've never seen anyone do them before.


here's a vid of the 275 x 4.

That's great, ouroboro!

I'm hoping to get to 2x bodyweight on squat sometime, still a little ways off.

Squat 350 for 2 sets of 3 last Friday and then benched 265 for 2 sets of 3 on Monday. Looking for 360 for 2x2 on Thursday and then benching 275 for 2x2 next Monday. Hoping to hit a 305 bench at the end of my cycle. So close to those magic 3 plates!
