Good lift my arse. Still, an amazing strength athlete all the same.

I don't know about anyone else but I just cannot get that excited about the big shirted American bench only comps - give me IPF rules powerlifting anyday.

Not too impressed to be honest. That was a s**te lift - touch and go and not locked.

Meatheads intimidating refs to pass lifts in my opinion - farce.

The faster these ridiculous bench only American comps leave the powerlifting scene, the better it will be for the sport...Unfortunately, I can't see that happening any time soon.

I thought his 1050 record not so long ago was a nice clean lift, but this didn't look good I agree.

It's a pity, because this guy is almost certainly the strongest raw bencher in the world along with Mendelson - and he doesn't even train for raw, I'm sure one of them could probably put up 800lbs raw in the future if that was their focus, although I suspect they might get too injured on the way without the shirts.

I know everyone always rants on about big shirted benches, but it was 1070LBS, his 1050LBS was a much better lift, but it was passed, I have seen lifts worse than this being passedRoll-Eyes.

What I am more impressed with was his 725LBS 3 Board Bench, now that was the quickest most powerfull 3 board press RAW I have ever seen at that weight, anywhere, sure he must have a 720-750LBS RAW in him, and just think this guy does not train for RAW benching, no doubt if he trained for it he would hit close to 800LBS touch and go, the strongest Bencher in the world and probably outlifting raw 100LBS+ more than anyone in UK, and 300LBS+ more shirted than anyone in UK, now to me he is impressive, and Iam sure he will come back and do a 1100LBS shirted bench, with great form, but again someone will say, they are not impressedGrin.

Yawn! The 1070 is a poor lift no matter what spin you put on it mate.

Yes, it is a helluva weight indeed. Jesus, I'd love to SQUAT half that weight, let alone bench it. BUT, I just can't find it in me to give lifts like that much credit to be honest. The standard of reffing is atrociously bad, it's like one big boys club!

There's a lot of rubbish knocking about what Ryan can or can't do raw. In my opinion, it's all s**te. In my eyes he does nothing raw until I see him compete under proper rules with proper reffing. To call him the best bencher in the world is very misleading to outsiders who know very little about the sport. I personally think some of the big IPF benchers like Ove Lehto are far more superior, but that's just my opinion. I would respect Kennelly much more if he pressed 900lbs with good form in competition instead of that 1070.

I like Ryan and would like to see him hit some big raw numbers.

But that 1070 was never locked out in the memory of man!

Ok everyone, I never said it was a great lift, I said it was passed, and to say it is s**te to assume what he can bench in my opinoin is s**tE, a 3 board press with 725LBS that fast is AWSOME, my three board press was only about 5KG more than my bench so I do not know what his is but based upon the speed an ease and perfect lockout of it, I would assume that he is capable of atleast 760-780LBS to a three board, to me that is much more impressiveGrin.

Who really cares what he can do to three boards, it's what you do off your chest that counts.

I wouldn't be suprised if he couldn't get within 150kg of that lift in an IPF competition.

I've always been kind of surprised there isn't a thriving untested fed with IPF rules in other regards. Shame IMO.
