26  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / 29 Days Left to SIGN UP for MHP's Kings of the Bench & Clash of the Titans on: January 31, 2011, 04:12:00 PM
All entry forms must be post marked no later than March 1st (no exceptions please.) Every show we get a few lifters who planned for and trained for the contest, yet didn't get to lift because they got around to trying to get signed up after the deadline had passed. Since we make custom competitor uniforms and we put together pre-game press packets, we aren't in a position to bend the rules and allow for last minute entries.

Interested lifters can download and print the entry form here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/pdf_Contest/coleman%202011%20entry%20form.pdf

You can also view and/or print the lifter information packet here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR THE RUSH OF POWERLIFTING IN FRONT OF A BIG AUDIENCE: Our show last year sold just over 3,000 general admission tickets. This year we're hyping up the contest more than ever by mailing out 5,000 fliers and 100 gym posters and by running a full page ad in Powerlifting USA (in addition to our online advertising.)

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN SOME SOLID PRIZE MONEY: The biggest bench in the 175 Division wins $1,000 CASH. The 2nd biggest bench in the 175 Division wins $1,000 CASH. The biggest bench in the 176+ Division wins $1,000 CASH. The 2nd biggest bench in the 176+ Division wins $1,000 CASH. The biggest push/pull total of the show wins $1,000 CASH. The biggest deadlift of the show wins $1,000 CASH. The 2nd biggest deadlift of the show wins $1,000 CASH. The lightest man to deadlift 800+ wins $1,000 CASH. The most bench reps with 315 wins $500 CASH. The most bench reps with 405 wins $500 CASH. And the most deadlift reps with 600 wins $500 CASH. That's $9,500 in total CASH prizes!

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR THE POSITIVE MEDIA EXPOSURE: Our contest video(s) will be featured on HouseOfPain.com, RxMuscle.com, Bodybuilding.com and on YouTube (of course.) We also routinely receive printed press coverage in Iron Man Magazine, Planet Muscle Magazine and in Powerlifting USA.

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR A TROPHY THAT REALLY MEANS SOMETHING: Most powerlifting contests give out 1st place trophies to just about every lifter in the competition. At our show, the Top 3 Lwt Benchers, Top 3 Hwt Benchers and the Top 3 Deadlifters will be getting trophies. When you win a trophy at one of our pro promotions, you've got something that really means you surpassed a very tough field of competitive lifters.

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR A RECORD THAT'S RECOGNIZED AND RESPECTED BY THE WHOLE GYM WORLD: If you look at our current federation records here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/pdf_Contest/coleman%202011%20pg%206.pdf

and here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/pdf_Contest/coleman%202011%20pg%207.pdf

you'll see that the bar is set very high, so setting a NEW record will be an accomplishment that you can be very proud of. Hardcore Powerlifting is also recognized and respected for our high standards of performace. So, getting a lift passed at our promotions means that you're officially certified to be at that level of strength and power (no bench shirts, no powerlifting suits and no gifts from the officials.) And Powerlifting USA ran our complete federation records list after our 2010 promotion and I'll be sending in the updated list to their publishing office after our April 2nd competition. Holding a Hardcore Powerlifting Federation record means that you've bested some of the strongest lifters in the world from the past six years of pro shows.

Please feel free to contact our business office if you need any assistance getting signed up to compete: Hardcore Powerlifting, Sean Katterle (pronounced "Cat Early"), 1.503.221.2238 (voicemail), Seanzilla@HardcorePowerlifting.com

This is not the first Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo.

This will be our 3rd time running a pro raw powerlifting meet at that tradeshow.

This is also Hardcore Powerlifting's 5th pro raw bench promotion and 4th pro raw deadlift/powerlifting promotion.

More Prizes Added to MHP's Kings of the Bench III

In addition to the $10,000 in cash prizes being paid out at MHP's Kings of the Bench III and Clash of the Titans II (  thanks to our title sponsor, MHP,  http://www.GetMHP.com  ) we now have some excellent prizes for the 2nd place finishers in the benchpress division!
 
Niko Hulslander and Mark Martin of Extreme Obsession Sports Gear are awarding each of the (4) 2nd place benchpress finishers with an EO Sports Gear Benchpress Boards Vest!  http://www.eosportsgear.com

The EO Boards Vest retails for $119 and it's the best way to train with bench boards when you don't have a third training partner to hold the boards securely on your chest. I purchased an EO Boards Vest myself a few weeks ago when I was cleared to begin lifting heavier again. I have two training partners but, due to work and family obligations, it's rare that all three of us are able to meet up at the same time on benchpress training day - enter the EO Sports Boards Vest !

With a collapsible pouch, the EO Board Vest can easily hold 1-6 bench boards. So, whether you train alone or with a training partner, this vest can be easily adjusted to fit any body type. With 3 different sizes available (and several designs and colors) let the EO Board Vest become a staple product of your bench training. It's the best way to train your benchpress lockout (and to build your triceps) when you don't have always have three or more people training with you on bench days. The words I use to describe the EO Boards Vest are durable, sturdy and useable. Niko and Mark obviously put a good deal of time into the designing of this benchpress vest.

EO Sports Gear will be running a tradeshow booth at The Ronnie Coleman Classic (in the powerlifting hall) and they'll also be giving a 30 minute seminar on the MHP Powerlifting Stage while the benchers are warming up backstage. So, hopefully you can make it to The Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo to check out this cool new product in person !

41  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / The BenchAmerica 3 Video is Now Online on: December 21, 2008, 12:06:43 PM
The Complete BenchAmerica 3 video is now online at http://www.houseofpain3.com/wlsnews/index.php

BenchAmerica 3 took place in 2005 in Chicago. That year's event kept the benchpress super shirts limited to single ply material. BenchAmerica 3 was also a drug tested event and all prize winners were tested and had to pass their tests prior to their getting paid. All of the officials were affiliated with either the USPF , the USAPL , the APF or a combination of the three. Except for a few controversial "belly bench" calls on the part of the judges the meet was exceptionally well ran.

Bench America 3 was aired on Comcast Sports Net nationwide. Joe Mukite , the top co-sponsor, producer and promoter, paid out over $20,000 in cash prizes in addition to his bringing the sport of professional benchpressing to the general sports fan public.

Professional Benchpress Competitors Included: Brian Siders, Ryan Kennelly, Jason Jackson, Matt Lamarque, Kara Bohigian, Mari Asp, Brad Kelly, Bart Kelly, Joe Smith, Joe Mazza, Ray Hickman, Wade Hooper, Horace Lane, Kenny Dinolfo, Tony Succarotte, Dennis Cieri, Jennie Hollier and many other talented iron pressers.

The title sponsor for BenchAmerica 3 was Xanadu Builders of Chicago and I strongly urge anyone in the Chicagoland area (who's looking for a general contractor) to give them a call. Their website is http://www.xanadubuilders.com/

Additional Sponsors: House of Pain IronWear, Ivanko Barbell Company, Jiffy Lube of Chicagoland, Powerlifting USA Magazine, The US Marine Corps, Elgin Community College, Holiday Inn, XSport Fitness, Inzer Advance Designs, Titan Support Systems and Bovine Strength Systems.

46  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / The Worst of Powerlifting on: December 01, 2008, 04:37:26 PM
Here's the video of Donnie Thompson's sham powerlifting (the new claimed biggest powerlifting total.)

http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/node/9775#new

A lifter intentionally signs up for Gene Rychlak's federation's meets because they know that their high squats, belly benches and pseudo locked out deadlifts are gonna pass.

So, it is the lifter's fault. Donnie and his sponsors want him to have a claim to the "all time" numbers record and they know that a show like this is the place to be able to get just about anything passed. A 2,200 raw total turns into a 2,900 techo total.

It's a free country but that isn't POWERlifting. It's sports apparel based stunt lifting.

Shame on Donnie Thompson, shame on the IPA judges, shame on Gene Rychlak for continuing to promote powerlifting garbage and shame on Chris Mason and AtLarge Nutrition for sponsoring and endorsing this kind of circus.

49  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / One of the craziest powerlifting internet radio interviews ever! on: November 21, 2008, 08:48:15 PM
Ryan Kennelly's on MD's weekly No Bull Internet Radio show.

The stuff he talks about this time is about as raw and uncensored as you can get.

Check it out via the link below (his segment's just over halfway through the broadcast so after the player starts you can fast forward to the middle of the broadcast and then you won't have long to wait to hear what he has to say.)
