One of the most influential lifters in the history of powerlifting! John Inzer brought the bench shirt into main stream powerlifting and sponsored some of the biggest meets as well! Inzer Advance Designs is one of the most successful powerlifting gear manufacturers in history, on top of that John himself was a world class lifter and all time world record holder.

Hideaki Inaba Classic Footage

Mon, 04/13/2020 - 01:11 -- admin
Hideaki Inaba one of the greatest lifters of all time won the IPF worlds a record 17 times and many IPF Masters titles as well. Here he is shown squatting 529 lbs at 114! He is also shown pulling 507. He was the very first lifter to squat 4 times bodyweight by doing a 462 at 114 in the 1970's and maintained his strength well in to his 50's squatting and pulling over 500 lbs at that diminutive body weight!

Larry Wheels pulling 725 for 12!

Sat, 04/04/2020 - 20:43 -- admin
Watch Larry pull 725 for 12 reps! Larry has set many records in powerlifting and recently did a 2370 total which was .1 of a lb higher than the existing world record held be Eric Lilliebridge at 2369.9. It did not count as a world record due to the fact that a record must be broken by 1 lb or .5 kg to officially break the record. A rule in every federation since the beginning of powerlifting. Never the less, he seems very capable of hitting possibly 2,400!

For those out there who can still bench during the current "Apocalypse" , watch this and see if you can! Or wait til the next "Apocalypse"!

"Julius challenged me to do 135x200 and 225x200 in less than an hour and 20 minutes. I did the 400 plus an extra set of 25x225 in less than an hour. Great challenge. Full reps no half rep crap. If you try this you have to extend your arms to lockout or near lockout."

Anthony Clark Classic Footage!

Fri, 03/20/2020 - 19:47 -- admin
Recently posted by Josef Eriksson on his YouTube, Anthony Clark is shown in some of his most memorable results! Anthony was an incredible force in his day and set many all time records including becoming the first teenager to bench over 600 lbs. He actually squatted 1,100 pounds before anyone else but he retracted that performance later. Till this day his reverse grip bench press of 780 to my knowledge, has yet to be broken. He actually made the first 800 bench as well but was controversial due to the lock out.
