Was awesome seeing this live and meeting the guy. Strong as hell, a lot of fun to watch bench. He had no idea how much he was benching until you see the fist pump at the end. That was his 2nd attempt, I believe his 3rd was 690, missed it. Was going to go for the record on 4th attempt if 3rd went well. The guys a beast.

no arch? no leg drive?
That was F**KING AWESOME!!!
Respect paid to Big Al!!!
Raw is where it's at, IMO!
He's been a very good raw bencher for a while, now he is absolute top tier. That's a great lift! He was a bodybuilder, so I am glad he is now finally training like a powerlifter. I am interested to see if he can get the record.

Incredible bench!! Very impressive indeed.
Make no mistake, Al is using VERY good technique. His lats are super tight, elbows have a slight tuck and stay there when he begins to grind towards the top and he's driving hard off his toes. It's a different technique than what your going to normally see but it's really working for him.
Hopefully he keeps going like this and breaks the record
Holy S**T!!!! I'm speechless.

That was just a plain, solid, no frills powerful bench. Damn but that was a strong lift!
That's a big strong man right there. Very impressive bench.
In my opinion, thats one of the most impressive lifts Ive ever watched. He made it look so effortless. Great work
Very impressive lift. Hope he can break 700 and take the 308 record.
Al is a great guy and a part of Team MHP. He will be lifting in the MHP Cage at the Olympia. Truly a beast!
