Mark Bell posted this video. This is his second attempt and it looked like an opener. If everything goes his way on November 3rd, he will break the all-time bench record!

No doubt. He's just inhuman with his bench strength. Nothing looks heavy in his hands. Even the 700 which is probably 95-98% of his max looks effortless. It's gonna be amazing to see this guy come out of nowhere and smash Mendelson's long standing 715.

Was this his first meet? I remember a recent interview he did with Mark Bell about how he came out of nowhere and hadn't even done a meet yet!

I wonder if he took a third. 700 is crazy.

I don't think he did. Mark Bell made it seem like he is saving it for his November 3rd meet.

Believe he gets $5500 if he breaks the record at Bell's meet.

I can see this going on for a while. Shows up at bench expos, hits an opener lift just to beat the field and win some money. No need to destroy the record when you win a bit of cash everytime you beat it.

Crazy impressive. Glad to see he put one in the books. Guy is huge, wonder what he weighed.

There are a lot ov big badass benchers out there... but Eric is the only one that just seems to make the plates look fake. They literally look like plastic 45's the way the bar goes up. I hate to add to the hype ov a guy thats not yet proven himself, but this guy really does look like the next level...

Does he squat or deadlift...???

Eric was super impressive a great guy and he is stupid strong. 720 will be an easy lift for him come Nov 3rd.

I thought Eric's first few videos were fake. Nobody moves that kind of weight that fast. After a little searching, I discovered he was legit. His lifts are just that damned impressively quick! I don't doubt Eric will hit 720 lbs. If the man stays healthy, I see a 740 ~ 750 lbs bench in his future. Simply incredible.

That Backyard meet will be crazy. Efferding will go 2300, Dan Green (who just hit a 635 front squat) will do something unreal, and Spoto breaking the all-time WR.

And it will be streamed live! :D

Is that the same Green that just totaled 2000 with just a belt? That guy is strong.

Yep. It seems like every week he PRs. I think Brent Willis and Vince Urbank are pulling too.

There legitimately might be an entire flight of 800 lb pullers
