Coker is a beast!!! And he nailed it nice & clean...
Unreal amount of power at any weight!!! That'll be a PLUSA cover for sure I hope.
damn, 903 at 220 bw...insane.
he looks like 5'2" ?
Amazing! When Mendleson has him in the air he does look really small. I guessing it's the angle and the way the shirt has his arms. On the bench it didn't look like a 4 inch press or some unusually small ROM. Either way it's a amazing lift.
Congratulation on your new all-time 220lb class bench press in an Inzer Advance Designs Bench Press Shirt!!

I've watched the video of that bench a dozen or more times now. Every single time I come away even more impressed. I know I've already commented, but it bears repeating - what a masterful bench!
I got to train with Jason Coker and Brian Schwab one time at Orlando Barbell. Jason is a really good guy, funny and very modest for a world class lifter! I didn't get to see him bench but I deadlifted with him (and outpulled him!) but they were saying I missed a big bench workout a couple days before where he was doing 850 to boards or something like that... Anyway, crazy strong dude and nice too! Very impressive bench!!!

Awesome ! Congrats
I got a crazy story bout Jason from the pro am last year....but def would not be wbb aproved. and kickass job jason
The best part is that he doesn't leave any doubt. It's real and it's fantastic.
That was a crazy strong lift!
My thought watching this lift was I cant believe how much he tucks his elbows in the bottom. I know you are supposed to tuck, but that was crazy! I didnt think he could come out of the bottom with his arms tucked that hard....he got them back out though and killed it.

He is short. About 5' 4" or so. To me that makes what he does even more impressive. He was a 198'er when I saw him hit over 800 at the APF Texas State meet a couple years ago. That was after he squatted 900. If he could pull, he'd easily have the all time record at 198. He's coming off a ruptured disk, as well. Amazing. Good guy too. Very nice and down to earth.
Picture perfect. That was a great bench.
