powerlifting by Ken Ufford Nick hit this huge milestone today. I am in my 50s and when I was 19 I was one of the few teens that was able to raw bench 500. That was before bench shirts. Nick is still 19 and wanted to hit this before he turned 20. Well he not only smoked this 500 but went on to hit a 505. Our methods work it has produced at least two teen 500 lb benchers. Congrats to him!
