909 Bench biggest single ply bench of all-time! Great work Robert. Mark "Jackass" Bell www.SuperTrainingGym.com[/quote] Mark, I think Gary Frank's 925 was in single ply. I personally did not see it but I know he benches in single ply historically.

Gary Frank does not wear single-ply, nor does he wear a closed back shirt. Congrats on your lift.

Why not 930, 940, 950? How come everyone passes up the numbers in the middle?

rob i see u are figuring out the shirt slowley but sureley it wont be long before you hit a grand in a double ply then take over, ps yes u do have the highest single ply bench of all time ..i was there when gary frank smoked 925 ,but that was in a double ply shirt in lake city florida. U just dont know how big the smile is on my face right now while typing this. stay strong and safe and u will be King soon.
