Wow! thats a hell of a bench! double weight bench by a woman. Its difficult for most men to that even. So in that light, one has to wonder about the use of performance enhancers. Yes i know she is IPF and has been tested, but, thats a big bench! i really dont care one way or the other, its still a hell of a bench, but one has to speculate.

If she really is not or has not used anything, and only she can attest to that, then just consider it a compliment and a testament to how strong u have truly become.

It's been said, but wow.

Now THAT'S benching ... 270lbs raw by a 132lb woman ... yowza.

I don't care what gear (if any) she's using ... that's just goofy strength.

now that is impresive raw 270 @132 great job

Man i feel weak right now.

Boy, I used to think my raw 290 at 165 was awful. Now I realize it's embarrisingly pitiful. Good lifting Jen!

Great lift. I thought she was gonna be able to push through 286lbs. Get it next time.

First,it was a great lift by Jennifer and I've trained with her before and she trains just as hard as anyone. Her husband is a great asset to her and the comment about enhancers, you can save it. She doesn't and I'm sure she'll be willing to be tested anytime.

I never posted anything on this site. I love the site and have followed it for a while. After watching that video I had to post something and all I can is WOW!!!! That is some serious strength. Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobody's better than Jen, true raw power... PERIOD.

I see a lot of 200+ pound steroid-using males not lifting that much. So I couldn't care about her drug status, it is just an amazing lift whatever way you look at it! I wish my wife was lifting that much! :)

Jen's bench is monsterstrong.
At this weekends state championship in hessen(germany) Tamara Althaus did 135kg (297) at 58kg. She missed 140kg (308) at lockout. Unreal!

I saw Jen's lifts in Denver, meeting her for the first time, and I can attest that she is as nice as she is strong. Her husband, Donovan, is also very nice, having been patient with all my questions.

I never noticed before how wide her elbows are, BB style. Obviously, it works for her, but my shoulders started feeling better after I started tucking my elbows. Interesting....
