That is some mighty weight on the close grip bench, do you use wraps on your wrists? The most I've done is 120-130kg but I find the wrists are the weakest link in the chain, was wondering if you have any advice? (I have wrist wraps but haven't used them on this)

This is SOME journal!!! Well done! From the weights you are using I gather your title "Getting HUGE" is 110% correct. Phew...! You could overturn cars...💪💯 Anyway, journal is a fantastic read! Best of luck with your training!
Occasionally I feel like I could lol. The Power Squat Machine mimics this feat a little.

I used to but not for years. You might be going too close. Mines nearer to shoulder width as opposed to the usual wider position for BP
