    4 reds...depending on the bar (assuming 44lbs or 20kg) then it's about 485lbs...unless there are clips which could add 5kg but I can't tell...


    a lot of Euro oly liftes do bench on occasion but if you think about it all the heavy overhead work they do builds strong shoulders/triceps which are very important in benching

    reds are usually 25kg, blues are 20.

    Dudes a badass either way.
