Just a quick poll to see how many 500 + raw benchers there are on here.

Post up your weight and your poundage.

Joined the club not too long ago so I'll start:

BW - 261
Best lift - 530

I am not one of them but a few individuals come to mind: Vincent Dizenzo, Travis Bell, Eric Lilliebridge, Rob Wilkerson, Scott Yard, Scott Weech, etc.

I never compete raw, but I've hit over 500 raw a few times in training.... going that heavy raw tears up my shoulders so I don't really push it too much. The 505 I hit most recently went up easy ( relatively speaking) so I'd guess I have a bit more in me if I ever feel like trying it.

maybe I'll do a raw comp later this year for fun????

Can't say I am one of them. Been there in training past, but that doesn't count and won't after this meet. ha

Yeah, maybe a better one would be how many guys can rep with 500 lbs raw...

My best is 3 reps. Be interesting to see how many vin could do

Best single is 550 at 251 done in a meet

Ryan Cellli also has a 535 bench done at 198! Also done 500 for 2

Really, you gotta throw a challenge at me you son of a gun. My scheduled deload for 6/6 is a raw bench. I was going to do 480 for a couple of doubles. Guess I'll throw 500 on for a little rep work. Damn, I hate reps.

My best raw benches are:
605 as shw, bw 323
600 at 308, bw 304

I did a 505 at Bench America. Pretty sure I can do a 500 today if need be.

Didn't I just see a video of you doing 520 or something in training?

Here is a video from a couple months ago from my facebook. I don't have the 500+set on video but this is a 475x3 set raw and then a drop set. I'm loading a 610 pound RB set right now with monster minis. It will be up shortly.

Give me a couple weeks and I'll give 500 for reps a go. I'm not that heavy yet working my way back up in my training cycle. My goal is to triple 500 this training cycle.

Scott you m'fer, what are you trying to do to me! I can honestly say I have never done 500 for more than one rep. I can't believe you are putting this kind of pressure on me.

Considering you've done 405 x 19 with your feet slipping all over the place after you'd benched 600+, I'd guess closer on the 10-12 or more side. Lets get through this meet then we can give it a go in the rack, (where you can just go until you dump it) if you really want to know. Right now the goal is a HUGE bench in June. ;-)
