    you are very wrong, world record isnt even close to that...franco has touched near 700 back in the day...still crazy for a guy who never weighed much over 185

    nope, just old school 45's...


    Take a look at the plate on the left side of the picture. We had some like that in highschool, wide as fuck rim so you looked even more badass benching 135.
