102  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Exercises to increase bench press? on: June 06, 2008, 02:12:18 PM
From your experience, what are the top exercises that helped increase your bench press lifts?

I think that everyone responds differently to different exercises but here's the ones that worked the best for me:

# 1 Board Presses (starting with a weight that's heavier than my current 1RM and then working 5 board, 4 board, 3 board, 2 board, 1 board over the course of 12-16 weeks and then going for it with a full range of motion at the end.) This seems to work really well with strengthening my muscles and with getting my CNS used to the new, heavier weight.

# 2 Bench w/Chains    I use the chains that Sorinex sells (they're different than the EliteFTS style and I set up the chains and bar weight so the weight on my chest is just under the weight I normally use for my full range sets and then the weight at lockout is about 15-25% more than I normally use and then I rep out like normal and this builds my speed and my lockout power.

# 3 Floor Press with and without chains    Really builds up my stabilizers (and balance) and my lockout power.

# 4 Close Grip Benchpress    is the best for front delts and triceps

# 5 (If my shoulders are healthy) I'll bench with a Mac Donald cambered bar and then use a 1 board which makes the bar sink about 1/2" lower than a normal full range bench would and that involves the chest muscles more than normal (got that idea from WSBB's George Halbert back when he was ranked # 1 and writing articles and making videos.)

# 6 I normally didn't spend much time on biceps curls but hammer curls seemed to strengthen the portion of the bicep that was involved with the lowering of the barbell during the bench.

On our website, in the Published Articles section we've got a bunch of magazine interview tear sheets with guys like Joe Mazza, Ryan Kennelly and Vincent Dizenzo so check them out if you're interested (they're free to read and to copy.)

103  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Only 13 Ryan "BenchMonster" Kennelly DVDs left for retail sale! on: June 01, 2008, 03:53:40 AM
I think that Bodybuilding.com is just about sold out now so that does it for DVDs of Ryan Kennelly's movie being available for mail order retail.

That's why we're now offering the whole film via high res streaming video on www.hardcorepowerlifting .com for only $2.99 pay-per-view.

We held on offering the movie online until the distributors had had a chance to sell their copies of the movie (it would have been bad karma to have undermined the retailers after they invested in wholesale copies of the DVD.)
104  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Mixed Martial Arts (MMA/UFC) / Re: Anyone watch Kimbo fight?! on: June 01, 2008, 03:48:48 AM
I definately think that both Kimbo and Thompson were fighting as hard as they could but this was a 3 man fight and it was Thompson vs Kimbo and the ref.

There's no way that an experienced (and he was) ref should have stood them up when Thompson had side control in the middle of the round. The ONLY logical reason is that it was becoming obvious that Thompson would have been able to ground n pound Slice for 1/2 a round non-stop and that Slice would have been too beat down to work his stand up signature power punches in the next round (which is what the pro boxing promoters wanted; an action movie KO instead of a ground fighting win that the uneducated fight fans don't understand as well.)

Then when Thompson won't go down and Kimbo completely gasses out, the ref jumps in and stops the fight to save it from fizzling from fatigue. I like how the commentators tried to say that Thompson attacked the ref out of confusion. He attacked him for good reason; he just fukt up the prime time main event for him!

Gina Carano was super impressive though. Kaitlyn Young was a tough competitor too. And I felt bad for Phil Baroni and I give him credit for having the class to give props to Villasenor during the post fight press conference. Baroni still makes for an exciting stand up fight so hopefully another promotion gives him a chance to return and get another shot at a W.

105  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Ryan "Bench Monster" Kennelly MOVIE is now online on: May 31, 2008, 01:50:44 AM
You can now watch the entire 90 minute Ryan "BenchMonster" Kennelly movie, The Road to the Arnold, online by logging on to

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com

We're now offering this complete film online, in high resolution streaming video, for the super pay-per-view price of only $2.99 !

Log on to Hardcore Powerlifting.com and watch the free preview clip, read what the critics are saying and check out some cool photos. Ryan's also getting royalties for the pay-per-view so this is also our way of showing $ support to the athletes (in addition to putting on our pro lifting competitions.)

Mike Lambert of Powerlifting USA writes "Ryan BenchMonster Kennelly has earned his stripes as one of the most successful big benchers in history, underscored by his third Arnold Classic victory. This Hardcorepowerlifting.com production is a documentary of the path Ryan took to victory #2 at the '05 Arnold, but there is nothing dry about his 1.5 hour presentation, with its awe-inspiring graphics and slicing edge soundtrack. Presented by House of Pain, there is in-your-face coverage of both workouts and contest performances. What emerges immediately and flows throughout the DVD is the astonishing explosiveness that characterizes a Ryan Kennelly benchpress. He literally throws weight up in the air, most particularly on the final rep of a set, and he cranks out some amazing board press performances in training, making it look almost easy.There are several unique features of Ryan's benching that are illustrated...mindblowin g floor presses with huge amounts of chains, for example. An intriguing feature of the DVD is the recorded background patter of training partners and Ryan himself, during training sessions, interacting with other great benchers, and at the Arnold itself...sometimes hilarious, sometimes shocking, and everything in between. There's historic footage of that first 800 lb. bench and his first 900, huge raw lifts, and astonishing rep sets...(how about 400x20.) The other thing that jumps out at you is what a massively stuck together human bein' Ryan is...physically, he is a goliath of muscularity. Check out what he puts in the Kennelly Shake , see how ripped he was after winning the Arnold, you won't believe the bloody towel , it's all here - a docu-drama in out-of-the-ordinary detail.” Mike Lambert, Editor-In-Chief, Powerlifting USA magazine, Page 8, April, 2006

Gus Rethwisch, Worlds Strongest Man competitor, actor who played "Buzzsaw" in Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Running Man and famous powerlifter and powerlifting promoter says "He’s the strongest bencher in the world. Ryan has done 645 raw. I’ve seen Ted Arcidi, Ken Lain, Jeff Maddy, Anthony Clark, Bill Kazmaier, Mike MacDonald, Rick Weil, Pacifico, Kiu Tuita and James Henderson. He’s the most impressive 700 pound bencher I’ve seen.” - Gus Rethwisch, Powerlifting USA, 2000

“Ryan Kennelly is likely the most successful big bencher of all time....he has been 700 plus in competition much more often than anyone else, and his performance record in the biggest of bench contests has been consistently productive. In this rarified atmosphere of New Age benching, he is just as smart a lifter as he is strong a lifter.” Mike Lambert, Editor-In-Cheif, Powerlifting USA magazine, March, 2005

“Ryan’s track record speaks for itself. After this venture he is by far the most prolific 700 bencher in history, with 41 official 700 plus lifts on the record He’s also done over 800 ten times in competition as well as being the 2nd and by far the lightest man to do over 900. Will Kennelly be able to return next year and emerge once again the undisputed champ? For now I can say with no hesitation that Ryan Kennelly is The MAN. To be the man you have to first MEET THE MAN - then BEAT THE MAN.” - Herb Glossbrenner, Powerlifting USA magazine, 2005, commenting on BenchMonster’s 2nd Arnold Classic victory. (For the record, Kennelly did go on to prove that he was the man by winning the Arnold Classic for a 3rd time the following year.)


“On a side note, Ryan Kennelly put on a little show himself. For those of you who don’t know who Ryan is, he’s one serious monster. He wanted one of our “The Cage” t-shirts and Sgt. Rock told him he had to win one by getting on the bench and doing 315 for 30 reps. So what did he do? He hit 40 f**king reps at 315. All this after benching over 800. Gotta give that brother props. When it comes to benching, he’s an animal.” - Written by Universal Nutrition and published on their official AnimalPak.com website.



I had one final attempt at the benchpress that day and the crowd knew what I was going for. The loaders piled on iron plate after iron plate, the stage was set, and the roar of the crowd built like a tidal wave careening onto the shoreline. I walked out onto the stage, almost in a trance, my eyes dilated and my pulse pounding in my ears. I set up on the bench and looked at the bar on the rack above me. The spotters handed the weight off to me, my hands squeezed the knurling, and I began the descent downwards, feeling the insane load dropping to my chest. The bar paused and I fully came to realize just how heavy this burden was. I could no longer hear the crowd and the world around me seemed to simply drift. Press the judge commanded and every fiber in my body pushed against that weight. The bar came off my chest like a rocket, my muscles coursing with burning flames. My triceps and shoulders fired on all cylinders, forcing my arms to lockout and the lift was mine I HAD JUST BENCHPRESSED 800.5 POUNDS What was formerly thought of as impossible, had just been done. - Excerpt from The Kennelly Method.

107  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Classic Gym Equipment Sale on: April 29, 2008, 11:56:16 AM
I don't work for Big Bear's Gym so I don't know what or why they're charging what they're charging. Some of the prices seem really good and some seem a bit high to me too. Your best bet is to contact Rick directly via email if you've got any questions.

That InShape contest bench is a bit pricey but that's one of the coolest pieces he's selling as it's just like a Forza Super Bench but the handoff platform is angled so you can get the bar out over the lifter easier and the bench is ultra heavy duty.

Just buy a copy of the DVD from Critical Bench.com

It's a great training film and it's got insane gym lifting footage plus contest lifting at the NERB, Kings of the Bench and inside the Arnold Classic Animal Cage.

I got a copy a few months ago and I've already watched it four times.

Pro benchers make shit $ compared to most other sports' pros so support Hoornstra's training and hard work and purchase a copy of the DVD.

119  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / BenchMonster Kennelly wins Ukrainian All Stars with 1,036 pound bench! on: July 29, 2007, 01:37:09 AM
Ryan Kennelly benched 1,036 pounds today at the WPO Stars of the Bench in the Ukraine. That gave Kennelly the win and the new All-Time Record in the bench press. Kennelly surpasses Gene Rychlak's 1,010 pound effort.

Rob Luyando benched 903 pounds which is a new All-Time Record in the 242 pound class, besting his own mark. Luyando hit his 850 pound opener, 881 pound second, and missed a 921 pound fourth attempt.

Scot Mendelson benched 986 pounds.

Da BenchMonster is da man!

Does this lift on a world class stage on the other side of the planet in a foreign country - he's the real deal all the way!

Your post seems to indicate that this is a raw meet.
If so, why does the distinguished gentleman on the poster look like he is wearing a Metal deadlift suit?
If he's not wearing a suit, thats the heaviest singlet I have ever seen.
Good luck with the turnout!

This show is the exclusive Olympia Expo Kings of the Bench qualifier (the pro in the photo is Matt Kroczaleski, a current King of the Bench (Silver, 2006.)

This show also features deadlifting and squatting, so we wanted to use a pic that wasn't a bench photo (so at a glance readers knew that it was a powerlifting event.)

I'm a fan of Ano Turtiainan's and of Elite FTS so I liked the idea of using one of their sponsored lifters.

Thanks,
Sean
