    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.

    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?

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
