    Pretty crazy raw benching at the end. From Matt Wenning:

    BENCH BASH FOR ZERO CASH 11/16/08
    By Matt Wenning

    George Halbert had called me about 6 weeks ago to have a raw competition at EFS this sunday. We called it the Raw bench bash for no cash. Touch and go, no refs, just fun. I had just got back from working the the Army, and training was going well just not as strong as I usually was so I knew this could be a disaster LOL.

    We all warmed up to 500, and decided that we would each be allowed 3 attempts after this point. George and JL went up to 550, I stayed at 515 and took smaller jumps. Unfortunatley George could not complete the lift due to shoulder problems and had to bail out. But JL moved 550 like a rocket, so I was in for a serious showdown.

    I took 555 on my second, which was a little bit better than my 515, and JL went straight to 600. The 600 flew off his chest but moved so quickly that his technique was alterd causing a stall at lockout.

    We then were on 3rd attempts and my best was 585, I knew that I would have to have a good day to beat this,as I had just squatted 900 for multiple reps in just briefs the day before. JL was hell bent on getting the 600 so I had to go for at least a PR. JL was first, rocketing 600 like an empty bar but couldnt lock it out. Next was my 590, which was firm and steady all the way to lockout, but was tough.We had a great time, and loads of fun, bringing old lifting partners and friends together. Hopefully we can do it again soon.

    Thanks to Dave Tate for his facility and time, he always makes us feel at home. Heal up quickly George.

    Matt 515 555 590
    JL 500 550 600miss
    George 500 550 hurt

    I thought Dave Tate was gonna get like 2-3 reps at most with that cambered bar squat cause it looked so unstable, but he banged out like 10 :bowdown:

    the benching is fuckin crazy!

    Yeah Halbert is a freakshow and it amazes me how fast he moves 500

    of course now Jason Coker holds the 220 record @ 819.5 which is retarded as well and he's got pretty sick raw strength from what I've heard, I'm sure bdr can confirm. Dunno who has the best coefficient now, maybe Frankl w/770 @ 198?

    george halberts bench is wild because its basically a BB style bench. very wide grip elbows flared.. he also drops the bar real fast.
