This is just out of interest. Does anyone know the most weight lifted on stuff like incline, floor press, reverse bands, strick overhead, close grip? etc

This be fun to find out.

I know my numbers arent too close to the top on these lifts but When I was 300 pounds and the ultimate gear whore with a 840 bench my best blue band reverse band bench was 660, my best 2 board was 650, my best 3 board was 675 and my best 4 board was 705.

Man i miss being strong LOL

Hopefully travis will chime in. Im sure at westside hes seen (and done) some big lifts.

Definitely have seen some crazy stuff.

I think it was Kenny who did a 675 floor press, we never really got into strict overhead. Just a lot of shoulder rotation going on there

Reverse blue band, my best is 625 I think, I've seen Tony do 675.

Incline, we've never maxed out, least as a team, in my memory lol. So many fun lifts done in the gym, it's impossible to recall them all.

My best 3brd is 585, 2brd 555, floor press - 530, bench w/ doubled purples - 405, floor press with 5 sets of chain - I want to say 315 or 365. Can't recall exactly.

George Halbert has done some stupid strong stuff in the gym in days past, like 545 raw for a set of 4 reps, benching something crazy with doubled greens

benching something crazy with doubled greens

Benching with doubled greens?!?! Jesus. Squatting with greens (note: not doubled) still gets me pretty good.

545 incline is redonkulous man.

I think I remember seeing that video as well.

Even at my heaviest and strongest my best was low 400's.
