Re(3): Big Benchers a thing of the past? Posted on 2/28/2018 at 11:37:53 AM by bitter the sport changed?
You crack me up. The sport has been spinning its wheels? Last I checked the Highest raw bench is 738.5 by Kirill Sarychev in 2015(who also has a 2386.5 total). Barriers are being broken in the deadlift that haven't happened since Ed Coan pulled 901. 2 guys have squatted 1100 with out gear.
Funny seems like the sport now has more big money meets and less bullshit splintered feds then 10 years ago. Hopefully more of the shitty backyard feds die out.
The sport has changed. Go to any meet any where and tell me where are all these geared lifters? The sport is built of the recreational lifter, the average guys. The average person isn't interested in gear and doesn't care. The average lifter dictates the sport Replies:
