Ah, I remember my first 315 lb bench press like it was yesterday, which, for all intents and purposes, it nearly was.
A sobering realization: my best is less than a third of Scott Mendelson’s bench press of 1015 lbs here in this video.
He’s not as tall as I am, but I suspect that I wouldn’t be benching over 1000 even if I were shorter, so I probably can’t blame it on that. Maybe if they made kettlebells that weighed 1015 lbs I’d get after it.
Super strong, Scott Mendelson. Hats off.
