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.

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. Working out is an activity, a verb. Training is more than a verb. It’s a way of life. -Dave Tate "Refuse and Resist" www.elitefts.com Brian Foster South St. Louis

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 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! Smile

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....
