Jose Perales Bench 140kgx26


#1

Jose manuel perales ipf record holder
benching 140kg(308lbs)x26 raw

havent seen any other guy under 200 like he is, doing teh same


#2

That guy has the shortest bench stroke of all time. I seriously don't think that was more than 6 or 7 inches. Yes, I wrote "stroke" and "inches" in the same paragraph.


#3

Is that even a legal grip??


#4

My bench was stalled out bad and I started doing wide grip benches for about 4 weeks. We called them snatch grip benches. It was hard on my wrists, my shoulders were fine but I'm not sure how long I could have went before they got beat up, but I got a huge PR from it. My sticking point was about mid-way.


#5

I don't see the rings so I think so... He's probably just really short


#6

still quite impressive through


#7

Very impressive. He obviously have a good build for bench press, but still 140kg x 26reps is very good!!


#8

64 reps with 100kg


#9

#12

Gotta love the lifting music.


#13

i think his ROM is about 1/4 of mine. (6'3)


#14

I like the floor, it's like they moved the beds in a room at Motel 8 and threw in a bench. I like the first guys sweater. Still strong as hell though.
