I just saw this weekend on the cover of PLUSA the Scott hit 1031 bench for a new record. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was any video footage of this on the net.

I have learned if I have nothing nice to say, I should say nothing at all.

I started to write that when I posted the video but decided not to at the risk of being flamed about it. I figured a judge would know better than me. I use to like Mendelson when I first got into PL but after seeing Power Unlimited and seeing how much negativity he brings to meets I lost a lot of respect for the guy.

since when do you not have to finish the last 6inches of the press to get a good lift?

As ****ed up of a lift as it truely was its still the record now. Ant nothing anyone can do about it. Sucks for some ppl out there that had the record and or were gunning for it. The bench records will keep going up no matter what...there starting to slow down as is the squat but its going to be a few years till **** calms down as far as advancements in gear

Even if he didn't bench shirted he is one of the all time greatest RAW benchers. I love Raw Bench to me its the truest test of pure upper body strength and he happens to hold two all time world records in Raw. So for all the smack talk how many people can even do 715 with a single ply, I bet some would have trouble with multi ply.

Deadlifting is the true test of strength! And I am pretty sure I can do 715 in a single ply. As far as his raw record it was an impressive lift. The video of the 1031 speaks for it self. And before you go getting your panties in a bunch I am friends w Mendy as well but I will call a spade a spade.

Wow, the all RAW caps, stop yelling. I'm fairly certain I could hit 715 in a single ply also, but why would anyone want to do that?

I think this thing has been discussed to death before and there really isn't much more to add which hasn't already been said.
