For pausing, I would just slow it down a little and practice some press commands. Doubt it'll take much if anything off your bench if you practice with some lighter weight, but if you don't practice before the meet it'll really mess with your technique.

I've made that mistake before lol

Wow, very strong!

Is that close to double bodyweight?

I believe he said he as 395 in a prior thread..

that would be 1.6xBW

but still utterly massive..

YES! You must practice as you play. Not preparing for a press call is a recipe for disaster. Best of luck in your meet.

Wow great lift, are you naturally a close grip bencher or was that just part of training.

You are stupidly strong.

it's just.. gah!

There is 'wow, hes strong.; and then there is just the type of strength that makes you cry.

its a full power/bench only/push pull meet--- its a state championship meet, so it has all of the SPF divisions for the lifters. This meet is shaping up to be a good one. I am really looking forward to it. We are not competing but will be there helping handle friends who are and to watch.

635 raw and close grip is incredible, I don't care how much he weighs.

How many other people on the planet could do that?

Definitely very few people can do this...
But the way it was done i don't know how it would transfer to a powerlifting paused bench,how much did you bench this way when you had your last meet and how much did you bench at that meet ?

It reminded me a lot of this :

I think several here haven't figured out that Robert is no meet rookie. This is one of the top raw competition lifters in the world. He has a 600 raw meet bench and an 854 raw squat (without wraps) at the APF La. a couple of years back. He also just missed a 903 wraps only squat on depth at the APF Alabama. Like me his deadlift has been his Achilles heel in the past. He's totaled over 2000 lbs raw without wraps at least once that I saw...maybe other times. Big Rob is a BEAR! I'm planning on driving over to see him and several others lift at this meet...about 30 miles or so, so it's an easy trip for me. Kick butt Robert!

Rob, what AtLarge products do you think helped you get to your current weight?

Didn't Rob say something to the effect it was "Cornbread and good home cooking" that gave him his size? I think it was the Alabama APF meet about 3 or 4 years ago. Something like that... :)

Robert, you should give the 715 raw record a run! It isn't that far off man if you are close gripping 635!!!!

I thought it was you who said that. Thats one of my alltime favorite powerlifter said quotes.

V. Dizenzo:

Is the quotation in your signature line really from "Socrates" or just Socrates Papdapolous? :) If the former, do you know the source? TIA
