The bench doesn't seem like it's a true test of strength.  The NFL combine should be using an exercise like clean and press to gage strength instead of bench press.

A lot of the late 70's and 80's guys can do that pose but almost no one can do that pose anymore. The pose is meant so that your waist is showing  (kind of sucked in) at the bottom and the top of your waist burdens the thickness, but it is hidden by your arms, so the illusion is your chest sticks out way in front of your waist, unfortunately today's pregnant bodybuilder won't look good in this pose anymore, one of the few poses that actually looked good on tall bodybuilders.

I like Ronnie but Arnold wipes the floor with him with that pose.

Thanks for the honest answers, dude.

He might have had the capacity at one time to do so, but without specific training over a period of several months, he would have been crushed like a bug under 560.

Agreed.

Didn't he fight like hell to get maybe 12 reps with a 205 incline when we first see him training in "Pumping Iron"? 

Granted, I suppose it's possible that was one of his later sets and he was tired, but fuck ... a gassed 270 lb. dude struggling with anything less than 365 on the incline isn't too impressive -- I don't give a shit if his arms are a mile long. 

Then there were his standing presses with 245 or so.  "Duh, how many Hank?"

"I wanna see TEN, Louie!  Come on, you're gonna wipe him out!"

"Ugh, ugh, ugh, uh, uh, duh, duh, AHNOLT, AHNOLT, AHHHHNOLT!" 

I freely admit I probably can't do strict standing presses with 245.  I've not even tried the movement in 10 years.  But Louie's strength was singularly unimpressive on film.

I won't even mention how badly he embarrassed himself in that "Superstars" show.  I hear he slimmed down a good bit for that, but even if he was down to 230ish, he couldn't even push-press 290 and hold it :\

u always read wrong. Arnold wasn't a good bench presser. He had longer arms than most and plus when he moved to america he stopped training heavy and started doing a lot of supersets (chest and back for example). He didn't train for 1 rep maxes or anything. Franco could move some heavy weight on the bench press because of his short arms, but he had awful form.
awful form? gtfo of here with that bullshit, I've seen video of Franco benching 405 lbs for 10 reps with very clean form
