for those who care, there are some videos from the 2002 michigan apf bench championship and bench for cash on my website at www.michiganpowerlifters.com go to the videos section.
the winner was zemin with a 670 bench. also included are videos of halbert of westside attempting 750, brandenburg attempting 800, skiver attempting 685 and scott hitting a 570. yes, some are only attempts - but that’s a lot of weight. amazing technique, execution, and power.
and yes, they are wearing bench shirts, and yes, some of them don’t have to move the bar more than a couple of inches.
