Mendy 1008lbs bench

  1. Thumbs up Mendy 1008lbs bench


    Mendy benched an official 1008 at the Ironman competition in Pasadena, California. He went for 1031 but couldn't get it. On his last attempt he went for 1049 and ended up tearing his shirt.

    This information taken from another forum


  2. That is INSANE!!

  3. WIsh I woulda have known about this. I'm very close to Pasadena.

  4. is that an old video?

  5. nope, just throwing up an old one for others to see him. should've clarified that, sorry. i believe he misses 1008 in that one, 2nd lift.

  6. i thought i saw that before, haha

  7. good god, a 1000 + lbs.....I can't even fathom moving that much weight....here I had a max (at one point in time..hehe) of 375 and thought..hmm not bad...sigh...

  8. I wish I could get 85% of that on the squat.....

  9. Triple ply shirts make a MOCKERY out of the sport! It is like a circus. What is next, nano-suits that work along with my muscle and and allow me to bench 5k? Why not just put a forklift under the bar and we can pretend im doing 10k. BTW Gene went 1" out of the groove of his suit and ripped his pec off. He has admitted he can't go over 600 w/o a suit but he can do 1005 with one? What gives?

  10. I agree, I find it to be nonsense. They should keep it all raw.


  11. oh the never ending gear or no gear in powerlifting argument, when will it ever end?????

    and just for the record, mendy can bench close to 700? raw dog, so his raw strenght is crazy too.

    i agree too, even with my ****ed up pec, lol. triple ply's aren't allowed that i know of, not sure where fina got that from (looks like he's banned now anyway). the federation rules that i've read don't allow anymore than double ply's, and i doubt they'll allow more. i do wish they'd take it down a notch though, to no more than a single ply, simply for protection. most guys get out of a single ply is ~50-100lbs.

  13. I just got Kennelly's video Road to the Arnold. I'l have to say I was impressed with his accomplishments. At one point he does 20 reps of 315 and 20 reps of 405 raw on endurance day. It was a pretty good video.

    Mendy holds the the RAW record at 715lbs.

    IMO he cant be anything but the best bencher ever.

  15. for now, anywayz. if nickw stays healthy, watch out. a guy at 24 y/o that can raw bench 655 x 2 is destined for great things.

  16. Isn't mandy only 28?

  17. not sure.

    LOL, Mendy is 40+, powerlifters don't hit there prime until mid/late thirties. I do plan on making Mendy real nervous after my meet in New England.

  19. from the man himself. there's no doubt in my mind brutha. you are the next record holder for RAW bench.

  20. I believe it is just a matter of time, before NickW gets him some records.

  24. Mendy is a monster but damn NickW Im sure u'll beat his record soon

  25. Big deal the guy got 1000 lbs. I saw another thread where a guy did 1200 pound. LOL

  26. i think the 1008 he did is a little suspect, noone's seen a video of it yet. and i was there at the arnold when he tried 1014 and he wasnt anywhere close to locking that puppy out either time

  27. i am so happy that mendy beat genes record. its more impressive watching someone do that weight that isnt a fat slob
