Anthony Clark Classic Footage!

Fri, 03/20/2020 - 19:47 -- admin
Recently posted by Josef Eriksson on his YouTube, Anthony Clark is shown in some of his most memorable results! Anthony was an incredible force in his day and set many all time records including becoming the first teenager to bench over 600 lbs. He actually squatted 1,100 pounds before anyone else but he retracted that performance later. Till this day his reverse grip bench press of 780 to my knowledge, has yet to be broken. He actually made the first 800 bench as well but was controversial due to the lock out.

Ellen Steins XPC Performance

Wed, 03/11/2020 - 22:42 -- admin
1,065 total for the GREAT Ellen Stein! 405 squat 215 bench and a 445 pound deadlift at 133 pounds, much has been said about Ellen but you just can't say enough! She's been on top of the world for many years but now into her 60's she has no equal. She is the best female lifter in the world when you factor age and weight. Can anyone argue that? She is still improving on her best lifts which is a remarkable feat and goes against everything we've been taught and for the most part experienced!

David Kirschen- His Final Pull

Sat, 03/07/2020 - 22:10 -- admin
After over 20 yrs on the platform, David pulled his final pull for about an 1850 total at 165. Competing at 165,181, 198 and even 220 with totals over 1800, 1900 and 2,000, he had a great career! Regardless of his final result, David has balanced his life and as he put it "you’ll always feel like you have one more big meet in you. I still do. But I also realized that we always have that feeling, and too many guys run themselves into the ground chasing it".

After his final pull, he left his belt on the platform and walked away......

An incredible feat of strength by the strongest bencher in the world today! 770 is a good squat or deadlift by any standard, but to bench press this insane amount of weight raw is amazing. In 1972 Jim Williams held the bench record at 675 (albeit with elbow wraps- legal at that time) and that took around 23 years to break when James Henderson hit 700 and eventually 710 in the mid 90's. We've since had lifters like Mendelson, Spoto and Sarychev inch that record up but Julius is taking it into another level. He is now 30 pounds away from the magical 800 lb mark.
