This is what Powerlifting is supposed to be about. God Bless Keith Harmon for being an inspiration to everyone calling themselves a lifter.

Wow, Keith, there are so few guys our age who can bench even 1.5 time bodyweight RAW, and you far exceeded that figure. Awesome and inspirational. Congratulations!!!

I am both humbled by and thankful for everyone's responses. Thirty years ago I was at 2.0 and 2.2 raw and natural. I am going to scratch and claw my way to see how close I can come to getting back to 2.0 by the time I'm 64. I haven't yet used bands, boards or chains, so I'm looking forward to a new challenge.

A good lift indeed. When I read the "press" part about this post I thought, overhead-press. Now that would be a feat for a man of any age. Still, good lift Keith!
