That’s a great effort, very impressive.

I’m suprized that he was allowed to lift without a singlet though.

He barely missed 575 too.

What a friggin showoff! LMAO. I only hope that I can clear 3/4’s of that so easily in competition. Very nice lift.

Very impressive!!!

He’s benching bodybuilder style with no belly, no arch, and a huge ROM.

I bet if he learned powerlifting form and used gear, he would have a shot at some titles.

Hell yeah. That’s good damn lift. As far as the singlet thing goes, from all I’ve heard, SPF is a pretty laid back fed (mostly small push-pull meets in AL, GA, KY, and TN) and as they probably didn’t make a fuss over that guy wearing pants. Besides, a loose singlet can conceal as much butt-off-the-bench as a pair of pants.

Why would you have to use gear to have a shot at a title? That is what makes this lift impressive, it is done without assistance. I agree with you on the arch thing, but it looks like he is lifting with the iron playground crew so that should come in due time.

RAW is making a comeback!!
