Gunny left last week on deployment back to the desert to defend the freedoms so many take for granted. He and I fully plan on doing the RIVERFEST in Bama when he arrives back. Please pray for him and our boys to get back stateside safely. Gunny, in my opinion, is THE BEST RAW 220 BENCHER IN THE WORLD. I will not spill the beans on his last lift before taking off for the desert, but lets say the all time raw 220 record is in serious peril when he returns! I saw him CLOSE GRIP 405X10 pause reps close grip AFTER A SHOW in Florida a few years back, raw! Not too many SUPERS can duplicate that feat or his raw bench, which officially is 530 or so which is far from his gym best until he returns! Total bench machine!

What is the all time 220 BP record? I didn't realize it until a few weeks ago, but Rock Lewis lives in my hometown. If I could only figure a way to get in some sessions with him.

I think the 198 record is 565 - by Mike McDonald of course. Word of caution when training with freaks, what they do may not necessairly work for you

Gunny, thanks for serving your country! We really appreciate it

To answer my other emails and inquiries publically, I believe he is expected to be back stateside around April. Byrdman was correct with the records he posted. The 220 record will not last long once Gunny can come back and get some good workouts and good homecooking in him for a few months. Rock Lewis is a great bencher that I have personally seen lift as well. He and Gunny are definitely at the top of that class in my book. Keep in mind Gunny has done over 500 raw officially in more than one show at 220. It is mindblowing to watch his bench style, with those long arms, flat back, and fairly close grip, pure Marine Corps power!
