I was wondering if anybody had a link to some of the best paused raw benches performed in competitions? I have seen Mendy’s 715 which is the all time raw record. It is a staggering amount of weight and super impressive but it is essentially a touch and go. I don’t blame the lifter for this but IMO the judges should be more strict with the heaviest weight, not less.
I have read about Henderson’s 711 done in the IPF which is known for being strict but I have never seen a video of him lifting more than 600. The Hardcore federation has an all time record of 635 I believe and they are usually pretty strict with the standards, so what I am really looking for is videos of 640+ lb benches that are raw and fully paused. I am wondering what the biggest one we can find is? Any links would be appreciated, thanks for your time.
