well a double BW bench press is both very impressive and extremely rare (in actual real life, im sure many on the internet can do it though).[/quote]
Extremely rare? I think you are exaggerating, are you saying only guys with the best genetics or guys pn roids can double bench press? [/quote]
I’ve been lifting for over thirty years. A competitive powerlifter in tested divisions for eleven (1989-2000). I would argue that a 2xBW ‘paused’ Bench Press is an impressive feat clean or not. At the same level as a 3xBW squat or deadlift…extremely rare…perhaps not; few and and far between; yes! Something to be proud of…no doubt!!
yes i would say it is similar to around a 3xBW DL or squat.
someone who is 5 foot 10 and say 200-220 and benching 400 - 440 or squatting/pulling 600 - 660 is extremely rare.
how can this even be argued???
who sees these lifts in a standard commercial gym or even a good gym REGULARLY?
ive trained in dozens of gyms for over a decade and these lifts are very rare to see.
but oh yeah, this is the internet i forgot.
True but you will more then likely see someone pressing 2x bodyweight at a hardcore gym then planet fitness lol
