I’ll answer what questions I can. I’m very knowledgeable about the history of the sport. As in the REAL history. Did you know

Only one powerlifter has EVER held all 4 records in the IPF. Which to me. Along with being undefeated. His deadlift records still in tact (check bodyweight folks and to be fair he did it in a 3 lift show with a 2 hour weigh in with the same bar for all 3 lifts. Like Coans 2401. Done sans shirt! Walked out squat. They weigh the plates after. He pulled 89&. It weighed out to 901. Nobody has come even close. I won’t even listen to the technology debate. Do the 2 hour weigh in and can the dL bar. He weighed 215. No shirt. Gant no shirt) All things being equal Gant is on par with Coan. Period. Makes him the best lightweight ever and must be spoken with Coan as best ever. Whom knew he set world records in the squat and bench before he ever set a deadlift record? So much for genetic freak eh?

Best bencher ever?
It’s too easy yet without using the web I’m doubtful anyone gets it. Shit I hope there’s old school here. I do!

Who is Gant?

I would like to add something but I am not so knowledgeable to do it.

Why did Scott "Hoss" Cartwright leave Mark Bell's crew? It seems a lot of people have stopped associating with Mark: Hoss, Jim and Silent Mike.

Regarding Mark bell.
When I lived in Sacramento some local powerlifter s who had trained at his gym said he could be a major dickhead. My good friend who trained there a couple times said he was pretty cool though. Maybe he just rubs some people the wrong way.

Heard from many he’s a prick but he invited me to dinner and into his own household after knowing me not even an hour. This was 4 years ago, so things may have changed.

As far as best bencher ever? You gotta be looking at Julius Maddox closing in on 800 raw...

Best bencher raw. Now? Absolutely. All time. No. It SORT of goes back to MJ vs Lebron. Rules. Competition. Variables. Mike McDonald will ALWAYS be the best bencher ever UNLESS someone duplicates what he did. Nothing is impossible but how about 99.99999%? He held ALL TIME WRS. In FIVE classes. At the SAME TIME. Including [email protected] He had the body of a stamp collector. As in you’d never imagine he was unbeatable. Factor in TRULY RAW. With stricter judging than now. If you can find rare footage from that era they pause it almost a half second longer routinely. Zero head movement. Feet flat and motionless. His elbow angle would result in pec tears for many including me. I tore BOTH and continued my deadlift career. I speak from experience. That’s why the argument on then vs now in powerlifting truly makes my argument unbeatable. Because I’m not dissing technology. But unlike better golf clubs. Racquets. Drugs. Supps. You can’t dismiss something like eliminating the walkout in a squat as tech. It doesn’t hold water. It changes the actual lift itself. Unlike tech. So if someone wants to beat Coan. Gant. At the very least mimic just the basics. 2 hour weigh ins. WORLD judges. Not your gym owner. People from other countries. No bench shirt. Regular bar. Same bar for all 3 lifts. Done at a show again with world card holding judges. You want to truly outlift either? Walkout your squats. Weigh in just before you lift. Take your shirt off. And use a standard bar for all lifts. Gangs records were always done in a foreign country. All his best. After squatting and benching WR level weights. So I’ll toss that out. Just pull but adhere to the rest. Weigh in then pull. With a regular bar. Neither of his records will be touched. It’s a weak ass argument to say a monolift and DL bar should be allowed because of tech. Bullshit. It’s a completely different lift. I pulled the USPF single lift DL American record at Coans last show. I was really there just to help him and witness history. But if you’re there you might as well lift. I lifted well after Eddy. Well my friend Kirk Karwoski was handling me. I did a 6 week peak before the show. Nothing fancy. Regular grip. Conventional. So the Captain tells the MC “Pay attention folks. He’s going to use the hook grip...,”. WTF bro? Really? I love Kirk. If you know him that’s him. He’s always joking. So I hooked it. I believe I went 3/3. It’s the only time I remember having to watch FIVE lifters in a row try to beat my 3rd. They all failed. I don’t remember the weight. 738? I weighed around 230. We partied really hard in Vegas that night. Eddy doesn’t drink. Kirk? Does what he wants. He double 1000 in training. It’s on his video set. He squatted [email protected] DEEP. Eddy is the only lifter I’ve seen besides him that you knew if he stood up it’s 3 whites. He must have been 2” below parallel. AFTER WALKING IT OUT. Yes it’s more dangerous blah blah blah. I bet 90% of those reading this have never even used a monolift. It’s a different movement. If you get a chance try it. I respect all arguments. But not factoring in the obvious isn’t even worth arguing. Oh and YES I’ve never set a meaningful pull on a standard bar. Just as a teenager. [email protected] at 16. But it doesn’t make me a hippocrit. I’m not in Gants or Coans league. But I am very knowledgeable about my sport and have either trained with or been blessed to have learned from the best ever. That’s a fact. And I’m truly blessed. I’m a Christian man and I give Jesus the glory. I’ll eventually start writing for the mags again. My service connected injuries have caught up to me. More than I ever imagined. Thing is I’m far from alone when I say I’d do it again. Knowing I shaved 25 years off my life. So please if nothing else. Next time you’re in Walmart. You see the bearded man with the Vietnam hat with dozens of pins. People stare. Whisper. Label him an alcoholic. Jobless. In fact none is true. He’s more proud of his service than anything else. And he spends every moment missing his brothers. He honors each battle. Mission or brother by a pin. Vest. Hat. Thank him. He looks angry because he is. They see left wingers grab their kids. Stay away from that man. Well without that man you’re job. You’re wife. You’re 2.5 kids and your freedom to disrespect him DONT even exist. Thank that man. I had the honor of serving with the last active duty Nam vets. I’d often learn life lessons in one walk down a hallway at “The big stop sign”. Those cowards tried to eliminate. Without them there’s no chance I had the blessing of serving. Thank them. Yes I hijacked my own thread. But it’s more important than the rest.

thank you for your service.

you guys partied the night before the event or did you mean after you competed? How do you feel about Rick Weir? where does he rank up there in terms of the greatest benchers ever? here's an odd question but i'll ask anyway; what was the strongest incline press you ever witnessed? do you think they're useful for raw benchers?

Hey bro sorry for the late response. Partying at the AC was always after the Sat night show. Titus threw the party and I believe more often than not WASNT competing. The writer for Ironman really WAS there. For obvious reasons he toned down what he wrote yet nerds online accused him of exaggerating lol. It was a gigantic meat market. It wasn’t a question of getting laid. If you were ANYONE it was just a question of who and or how many.
Rick Weil is a fucking LEGEND. He’d train an entire 16 weeker at at least 180-185! As high as 190. Back then you had to do all 3 for a WR. He squatted in the 600s. With an antiquated super suit and wraps. Comparable to just wraps today. Remember. 2 hour weigh ins and he walked out his squats. He benched FLAT BACK 24” grip! Maybe 25” at most. Well inside the rings. Officially the SECOND 3xbwt bench EVER. [email protected] His diet is something only he could do. I forgot exactly but at least 3-4 weeks out he called it The Kook Aid Diet. He’d drink big ass amounts of red kool aid. And just supper. Like a few ounces of meat. Small potato and veggie. Because he wanted to eat with his FAMILY. Nowadays many forget the concept. I remember his workouts being FIVES. He said he even chewed his food five times lol. As with most of the best PLers. He’d never do over 2 top sets. He benched once a week. Numerous weeks of fives until 4 out. He relied on HEAVY dips. I recall him doing 5. Maybe even 6 wheels. For 5. Again I believe 2 top sets. Maybe 1 more light. I don’t recall him doing military press. His bench was 90% triceps. No leg drive. History never remembers that he was the heaviest man to bench 3xbwt at that time. Bradley was 132. Weils record must have stood over 20 years. A good buddy of mine broke it and FAIRLY. Joe Mazza. Very few have held all time records raw and geared. I’d have to really think of another? Joe did. For years. Both just legends. But Weil is the GOAT 165. Incline to increase bench? 100%. I remember training with a guy who’s first meet benched 700 and change. RAW. Now he preferred DBS. Many of the best do it right after bench. Like Coan. I recommend doing the same. With competition grip. 2x5. Cycle it with the bench. A trick I learned from Eddy. Cycle your main assistance work. And sets of 5 are the pillar of your base. Kaz. Coan. Weil. Kirk. Kuc liked 3s but 3 sets. 9 reps vs 2x5 10 reps. See the consistency? Time under tension. Progressive overload was. Is. And always will be king. Despite these add 100 lbs in 8 weeks bullshit. 5 rep sets. Each lift once a week. Pull only 2-3 times a month. I wrote an article called INCREASE YOUR BENCH WITHOUT BENCHING. As a joke. Because of the article INCREASE YOUR PULL WITHOUT PULLING. Do you think Jordan’s baseball career helped his game? Fuck no. If you want to be good at something do it! That article was for lazy asses looking for a reason not to pull. If you’re injured I get it. I didn’t receive ONE bad comment. Just like STRAPS ARE FOR SISSIES. Unless injured. If you can’t grip it. Fix your grip. Or don’t lift it. It pisses me off that seemingly everyone thinks the top 10 strongmen could just stroll to a pl show and break the WR pull. BULLSHIT! Prove it. “He pulled 1100 with straps he can pull at least 950 without “. BULLSHIT. Now Zvickus could yank 9. NP. But you cannot assume. It begins with ASS. They freaking HITCH. Truth is NONE of the top 5 strongmen have ever pulled 900 in a show. I doubt 850. So if it’s so easy. Just do it!

awesome post! thank you. love hearing about the old school PLers. The Jim Cashes, Roger Esteps, Weir, Mike M. (the Stamp Collector LOL), Gant, Capt. Kirk, Ernie F., Doug Young, Pacifico, Dennis The Duck, etc....these guys were something else. It'd be something to be a fly on the wall and see them train. Please continue with more stories about the old school guys. They almost were characters in and outside of the gym from what i've seen and read.

Remember Dave Waterman (RIP)? That was the guy people freaked out over when i was in high school and he was one of the few guys (him and A. Clark) who kicking ass in the bench but weren't Westside guys. So anyway, ...what was biggest incline bench you saw? What was the most impressive incline that you saw for reps?
