Check Out this Sub-Junior Bench Press Record

Met this fellow at the gym this morning. We only talked about squats and he didn’t mention that he was a world record holder in bench press, but I looked him up and found this:

252.5 kg in the 105 kg class as a 17 year-old:

And later on in the year, 285 kg in the 120 kg class as an 18 year-old:

Holy crappo.

That’s a great Bench. How about raw?

That was my first thought as well. Single-ply seems to dominate in the German powerlifting Bundesliga and at state and national championships. I’ll try to find that out next time I run into him.
