RE: Is this bench press competitive?
Well I have droped down to 181 before and I can get 350 in the gym. It all depends on how you got your 335. Is that your max with a bench shirt, like stated above? Is that your max with a shirt with a pause or is that your max with no aid at all with pause or not. It all depends really because at competitions the rules are you have to have the bar motionless for 1 second before pressing it back up. If your getting into a powerlifting meet with squat/dead/bench thats great but I dont think that will win you a meet or even place with a bench only competiton....if the even is big enough that is. Just my 2cp.
