632lb Bench in 198lb Class


#1

Hit a 287.kg (632.5lb) bench at 93kg (198lb weight class)
was about half an inch from touching but still proud of this lift it's a big pb for me at this weight

perhaps ‘in a shirt’ could have been added to the title of this thread, so I could have avoided clicking. I’m sure this is impressive, but I’m so unfamiliar with geared lifting that I don’t have a reason to watch it.

Congrats anyway though, not trying to be a dick, geared lifting just isn’t for everyone.

I gotcha. Definitely a strong bench for that class. What does that put your raw max at, 475 or so?
