Training Footage Of Ted Arcidi

Here's some old training footage of Ted Arcidi on a light bench day.

Comment viewing options

Not only is that a light training day for him, but that is from Powerlifter Video and that's of Arcidi years after the prime of his career. Arcidi is one of the only benchers to ever be able to rep with 600+ pounds (no shirt.) After the benching he even went very light on some triceps pushdowns (Arcidi had some really rough battles with elbow problems and bone spurs.)

I know of a couple guys that can rep with 600+ raw ;)

Who? Rychlak and Lattimer? You DO know that REAL men wear shirts, right? :)

Real men lift heavy ass weight, shirted or raw.

Real men or women don't brag about a lift, they just go ahead and do it !

Also, Arcidi was looking friggin' huge back in the day, wasn't he ?

WHO WAS BRAGGING?

Isn't it amazing that Arcidi doesn't look like a fat and bloated pig like today's "Big Stars"?

Nick Winters doesn't just know guys who can bench 600+ raw, he's done it many times himself. There's video of his hitting a triple with 635 on youtube. Keep it up Nick, you and Jeremy are the future of raw bench records!

I have spotted Nick Winters Close-Griping 600+ for reps.

Yeah, Nick's our current Silver Medalist at The Kings of the Bench (he tied Siders but weighed more) and I'm stoked to see what he blasts up at our next promotion! The dude is fukkin sic strong and the crowd really gets into the lifting because it's old school bad azz mo fo strong.

Sean, give it a rest with the damn meet promotion! I heard you didn't even have real weigh ins for the meet, how serious can anyone take you and your meets?

Get your story straight, I saw you kissing Mike Wolfe on that float. You are a homewrecker, you split Mike and Nick up!

You think that that's impressive.

This lifter broke the deadlift record and got the cover here

And then apparently, like Cartman's mom has a penis and a vagina and became one of the greatest women lifters and got the cover again here

You didn't know that Mike Wolfe was a big deadlifter before he gained weight?
