Ryan Kennelly, 308, bench pressed 1,075 pounds on Saturday at the Pride Strength Wars in Kennewick, Washington. That moves his own all-time 308 class record up from 985 pounds and is the biggest bench press ever, regardless of weight class. Kennelly held the prior record, benching 1,074 pounds while weighing 332 pounds. Kennelly opened with a successful attempt of 1,010 pounds, then hit 1,055 pounds on his second, before the record-setting bench press.
