I wonder what those spotters would have done if he dropped it. Not much, I think.
07-16-2004, 11:55 AM #5
It's impressive weight...but look at him...he's a freakin' goober. I guess we all have different goals in mind when we train.
07-16-2004, 11:55 AM #6
if thats gene rhychlack (or however you spell it) i personally dont think it counts. I heard he cant even do 700 RAW! Using all those bench shirts etc is crazy to me, they may as well cme eqquped with a shirt with neumatic presses built in!
07-16-2004, 11:55 AM #7
imagine what that guy's squat must be
07-16-2004, 11:57 AM #8

I respect that he can do that much weight, but i find it funny he moved it only about 8 inches. I dont think the competition should be done in how heavy the weight is, rather in how much work you do. Work = Force x Distance. The distance would either be the entire ROM, or just the pushing up of the weight.

965? i would say that he can probably f*ck some people up, but his chest is so big that he probably can hardly even throw a punch...impressive none the less.

1. His chest is so big his arms moved two inches.
2. Once again his arms moved two inches.
3. Bench shirts are cheating, plain and simple.

If your actually going to compete in powerlifting, you have no choice to use a shirt. It's about like someone saying yes I have great genetics let me go in the Mr. O all natty and see how I do.
Not an avid supporter of shirts at all. Best thing I personally feel about them is the support you get and the reduced risk of injury. It eventually turns into a who has the most money to blow on a sexy,shirt that I can't move my arms in,that wins a meet.
I personally feel shirts are taking powerlifting the wrong way and making it out to be more of a joke then most people already view it as. When you are doing hundreds of pounds less because you don't have a piece of denim around your body,then something is wrong.
I have a ton of respect for the guys that can handle this huge weight though. People that don't train for POWER have no clue how hard it is once you are stalemated,regardless of training and nutrition, to persevere and keep your head on straight.
Powerlifting and Bodybuilding are two different things. A large percentage of bodybuilders know little to nothing about powerlifting other then you need to be fat,lift heavy weights,and bench shirts are cheating.
Being around a WPO event and seeing what the atmosphere is like total electric. I'd advise even people with goals not even simliar to those guys at the meets to attend. It will seroiusly make you wanna dig more out of yourself when you train. Regardless if your bulking,cutting,maintaining or just want to get stronger.
I've seen a lot of these guys up close and most of them are monsters. Seeing Scot Mendleson will change your mind about the stereotypical powerlifter. A lot of these guys I honestly believe could have great physiques if they so desired. The amount of mass some of these guys hold isnt common. Regardless of massive steroid use . If they trained and dieted more suitable for they bodies instead of strength there is no doubt that they could be quite impressive.

if everyone uses a bench shirt than its not cheating...

impressive amount of weight but ya i agree i would rather look good and lift less....
07-16-2004, 06:11 PM #27
The man is one powerful f'er! As einstein said he can do high 700's clean. That is the number I focus on since I also don't agree with using bench shirts..That being said a bench in the 700's is nothing short of amazing. I've been around gyms on and off for the last few decades and have never seen anyone do over 600. Once saw a guy do 575 but he arched his back like a **** bridge...When we flat backed him he was pushing high 4's
07-16-2004, 06:13 PM #28
i could do it if i wanted to..i just dont feel like it todaylllol

Well the dude is STRONG

Anyway, **** hes strong

I'll give him credit for being strong but that's it. I've used bench shirts before and personally don't agree with them, but for meets they obviously have there place.
07-17-2004, 01:38 AM #35
i can do a 9.65 bench thats easy
07-17-2004, 06:28 AM #36
if he moved two inches or twenty i dont care, he benched close to a thousand pounds. He moved the weight, yes, with a shirt, but who cares. Every powerlifter uses shirts and whoever said that as long as everyone uses shirts its not cheating is exactly right. There was no unfair advantage. My hats off to this guy

Also by being 99%(estimated) bodybuilding oriented I have to realize that more then majority of people on here know very little about powerlifting. Bench shirts, I agree, are regretfully part of the sport. That's pretty much the main topic of discussion on this thread.
Powerlifting is a total different sport then bodybuilding,and no most people that reach for certain goals in bodybuilding cannot understand why someone would be interested in powerlifting.
Anyone that has ever used a bench shirt knows that the shirt will not do anything for you without practice. Sort of like just taking an anabolic steroid and expecting it to work for you. You dont throw a shirt on and gain 100 pounds on your bench press.
Someone's goals in bodybuiding are obviously going to differ then a powerlifters. Say your wanting to put on around 20 pounds of size in the offseason. First couple things that come to mine are AS and diet. Say a powerlifter wants to gain a large amount of weight on a certain lift. He is going to think of a bench shirt.
You cant seriously compete in powerlifting without a shirt because the use of it is there. Would you stop using steroids because you think that its cheating? Is there ever going to be an all natural Mr. O? No, I think not.
As far as Swolecats comments on powerlifting, I see absolutely nothing wrong with it. Could have worded it a little bit less offensive for the people that cannot make a constructive discussion without arguing. Which is a large amount of people on this board,but no his opinion is just that. I can read things without getting offended and wanna badger him with words because im sure neither he nor I have time to sit on here and quack at each other like ducks.
The beauty of a forum is to discuss,share ideas, agree and disagree. I wish a lot more people on here could take words with a grain of salt instead of arguing and taking things to heart.
