No excuses! Just lift it! It's great that Andy's DL are going in there. Why not the biggest bench and biggest squat.

Hats off to Andy, but in response to anyone who asked about why they didn't include a record bench press or squat, remember that Guiness was retarded enough one year to put Issac Nessar in as the world record holder in the raw bench press for his supposed 825 pound bench. They seem to not know the finer points of powerlifting records. Andy's record is fully legit though and worthy of lots of notariety and praise.

Andy Bolton is not the only powerlifter in the Guiness Book. Jim Rouse is listed for his 501 bench press at 181 at age 40 at the 1982 IPF World Master Powerlifting Championships in North Carolina.

Andy, congratulations on getting into the Guiness Book. I witnessed your pull. Very impressive. Side note......I haven't looked at the Guiness Book in a bunch of years but back in the early 90's Jesse Jackson's 711 squat as a 148 was in it. I'd just assumed other records continued to be there if the lifter chose to submit them and they met the criteria. Again, congratulations Andy. Mike McDaniel WPC441/APF12766
