That guy is fuckin awesome, what a freak
total freak....ass came way off the bench though...
wtf awful form. that counts?
for being strong, yes
does your ass have to touch the whole time in a PL competition?
Shit should've been redlighted but nice gym lift.
no, in the APF the but can come off the bench while the bar is being brought down but must remain in contact with the bench while you are pressing.
At least that's what Bev McDaniels posted on another forum, she is a well repsected APF judge and her husband is the VP of the APF.
This is IPF rules
1. The bench shall be placed on the platform with the head facing the front or angled up to 45 degrees.
2. The lifter must lie on his back with head, shoulders and buttocks in contact with the bench surface. The
feet must be flat on the floor (as flat as the shape of the shoe will allow). His hands and fingers must
grip the bar positioned in the rack stands with a thumbs around grip. This position shall be maintained
throughout the lift.
3. To achieve firm footing the lifter may use flat surfaced plates or blocks not exceeding 30 cm in total
height to build up the surface of the platform. Blocks in the range of 5 cm, 10 cm, 20 cm, 30 cm, should
be made available for foot placement at all international competitions.
4. Not more than five and not less than two spotter / loaders shall be on the platform at anytime. After
correctly positioning himself, the lifter may enlist the help of the spotter / loaders in removing the bar
from the racks. The lift off if assisted by the spotter / loaders must be at arms length.
5. The spacing of the hands shall not exceed 81 cm measured between the forefingers (both forefingers
must be within the 81 cm marks and the whole of the forefingers must be in contact with the 81 cm
marks if maximum grip is used). If in the case of some old injury or anatomically the lifter is unable to
grip the bar equally with both hands he must inform the referees prior to lift-off for each attempt and if
necessary the bar will be marked accordingly. The use of the reverse grip is forbidden.
6. After removing the bar from the racks, with or without the help of the spotter / loaders, the lifter shall
wait with elbows locked for the Chief Referee’s signal. The signal shall be given as soon as the lifter is
motionless and the bar properly positioned. For reasons of safety the lifter will be requested to “Replace”
the bar, together with a backward movement of the arm, if after a period of five seconds he is
not in the correct position to begin the lift. The Chief Referee will then convey the reason why the
signal was not given.
7. The signal to begin the attempt shall consist of a downward movement of the arm together with the
audible command “Start”.
8. After receiving the signal, the lifter must lower the bar to the chest (the chest, for the purpose of the
rule, finishes at the base of the sternum / breastbone), hold it motionless on the chest, after which the
Chief referee will signal the audible command “Press”. The lifter must then return the bar to arms
length with no excessive / immoderate uneven extension of the arms. When held motionless in this
position the audible command “Rack” shall be given together with a backward motion of the arm.
9. If anatomically, the arms cannot be fully extended the lifter must produce a certificate issued by the
Medical Committee. The maximum allowable is 15 degrees out of true.
IPF and APF bench rules are very different.

Benching like that is utterly pointless. You get no pec growth at all with that kind of technique.
