Alright guys, last year, I didn't win the Animla Pak bench press competition. you've got to bench your body weight 30 times in front of about 300 people. Last year, I hit 215 lbs 18 times. I've gotten bigger and stronger since last year and I plan on winning some free supplements this year. Last week, I did 225 x18 which is about 5 lbs above my weight. I've got 4 weeks to prepare so every week until the Arnold Classic I'm going to be starting my chest workout with 225 for the highest possible reps and I"m going to continue doing high reps throughout the workout. Also, Muscletech is holding the Gakic bench press challenge to see who can do 225 the most times so I'm preparing. Anyone coming to the Arnold Classic to root me on?

Thanks guys, I started this thread to find some more motivation. As a psychology major, I know about mind over matter and you've really got to get fired up to do something like this. The competitions are being held during the fitness expo. I've got to go up to the boots and sign up. My brother in law is also competiting. It's nothing really formal but I take it seriously, I want free supplements as you guys know they can be very expensive. I spend around $100 a month on supps lol. My brother-in-law also hit 225x19 so we are going to be very close. We'll see. Thanks for the support guys, it means a lot.
Here's my current stats and supplement stack that I'm using to gain strenght:

controlled labs green bulge- Creatine CEE w/ arginine and tauring
BSN CellMass-CEE creatine w/ glutamine
Optimum Nutrition's 100% Whey Protein- 2-3 shakes a day
Optimum Nutrition's MRP-for when I have no time for a full meal
Optimum Nutrition's Serious Mass-for high calorie loading (1600 calories per shake lol)
Men's One a day vitamin
Fish oil -2 grams a day

Good luck Fred I think you'll do well!

If I make it to the Arnold it will be for the HooknShoot mma fight's or the Gracie grappling challenge in which I'll be cornering my buddy cause it's a free ride for me lol! Other than that I don't know if I'll make it or not!
