The WPO allows double ply poly and denim shirts in closed, partial closed and open back.

Mendelson failed to register a lift at an Arnold Classic qualifier and he's bombed at the last two Arnold Classics. That being said, as soon as he's fully recovered from his car accident I'm sure that he will be back and he was looking massive when I saw him last week in Los Angeles.

Gene Rychlak is not competing by his own choice.

i wish they would all bench raw, that is just me though, i know the ply is all a part of it and what not, but i dont care, i get so much more impressed when i see a guy bench raw, like over the summe ra guy at my gym was donig like 435 pause reps for reps, i always though that was alot, but i had heard ppl weer doing 600 and so for reps, but that guy i saw was raw, and now i realize how impressive that really was
