Sumo Bench Press

It’s within the rules, but damn that’s a short range of motion. His arch is so big you could practically walk underneath him.

This is exactly where I lose respect for powerlifting.

Step 1: gain 300lbs so you barely fit under the bar.
Step 2: have arms so short that brushing your teeth is a stretching routine.
Step 3: hire a priest to perform an exorcism on you while under the bar (for the back arch).
Step 4: break hella world records.

Although the sport may be silly, powerlifters are strong.

I love powerlifting and wish sometimes I could still compete. The rules need to change though to make arches like that illegal. I’m not sure how to change them – I’ll leave that for someone smarter than I am – but that ROM is just silly.
