300 Raw at 160. Just used my shirt for the first time so hopefully i'll hit something sick in september. The current APA State Record for the 18-19 165 class is 330, i hit 375 touch and go in the gym today. Also hit 285 raw in the 148 lb class last year to win the state record for that division.

Best ever for me was a 335 raw touch and go about a year ago today at 300ish lbs. Hopeing to improve that to 365+ raw before the years out but its not looking to good right now.

Jeez Kevin almost 2.0x bodyweight. I'm barely at 1.5x bodyweight so I got a lot of work to do.

I've only benched twice in competition and both were unequipped. My best is 225 @ 208 after messing up my knee squatting (I missed my 2nd and 3rd attempts on bench).

Just benched 295 my first time in a shirt and came close with 315. I'm hoping to get 325 at my next meet in September.

325 raw / 365 single ply, but neither were in competition. :(

I believe the question was contest max.

I think mine was 285, unequipped, USAPL, Dec 02, @ 220.

It's much better now, but I seem to have lost my ability to train long enough to get in another meet.

435 raw in WABDL, 525 single ply rage x in APF. I've hit 585 for the last three weeks and I should nail it this weekend in Olympia WA in a WABDL meet.

Your truely right, mine may as well be 0 pounds. I did lift in a meet for my highschool football team but it was hardly a real "meet".

315@148 (I was 1 for 3 that day)

360@165 (3 for 3 that day)

I suck at benching. If I didn't have a sick arch I'd bench 100 lbs less, lol.

Ahh yes...I go through full range of motion no arch at all....

Competition Bench

1st Bench Only Meet with a single ply rage-x: 424 @ 163 (barely missed 440) while injured

1st 3-lift Meet - Bench = BOMB! :( LOL

That 1st bench only meet was a year ago in June 05' ...My raw bench is stronger now and I've done some pretty impressive shirted lifts to chest and off boards in the gym then again there were times I had horrible sessions with a shirt being at my strongest...still trying to figure out the shirt and see what fits me the best. Those are the only two meets I have done over the past year...

I compete @ 165 class, may move up to 181 one day and I mainly lift in USAPL. I should be hitting 405 raw soon and hopefully hit a 501+ bench single ply...

at my colleges bench contest in mid spring i did 305, won my weight class, and that was at like 185-190

last week i did 325@200 on my 5th set, so maybe 330-335 is possible for me

all raw, i don't own a shirt
