    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????

    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.

    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. ;-)
    Finally ELITE @ SHW..

    Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
    Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.

    The next stop: PRO total.
