This was posted at PL Watch. There is video there. Congrats Ryano!!!

On Saturday, Roger Ryan (308) once again pushed the all-time over-50 bench press mark higher when he competed at the UPA Iron Battle on the Mississippi in Dubuque, Iowa. Ryan moved his own record up five pounds to 749 pounds. He successfully hit his 716 pound opener, made 749 on his second, then made a run at 804 pounds.

Way to kick it Roger! If you don't mind me asking; which shirt this time?

Thanks Buddy. I opened with Merlin IV(single ply closed back Super F6). The 749 & 804 attempt was in The Ryano(open back Titan prototype).

For those that don't know, I name all my shirts. It's a simple way to keep track of which one I'm using.

Thanks; looks like both are serving you well. I recognize what happened on the 804! I've had that happen several times when I had the shirt jacked down and had to try to touch real low. It just won't stop when it starts! You'll get it next time!
