Lou benching 400 or 405 is a load of fart. Lips sealed

Didn't he deadlift an insane amount? I remember a number 900 but I don't think he did that much.

most gym rats can handle 120's for reps for flats or inclines so thats nothing special at all, no matter how easy he does it

I highly doubt if Lou could ever bench upwards of 405 if that even.

WTF are you guys talking about?  Everyone creams all over some 18 year old fat fuck with half the size and build of Lou Ferrigno doing 500lbs in the bench yet you guys wouldn't believe big Lou could bench over 500lbs?

Yea it is amazing what some of these guys think.  I can bet not one of them had ever seen Lou in his prime and how big he was.  And I am pretty sure they didn't have Lou on the WSM just because he looked good.  He was a huge and very thick 275+ when I saw him in person nearly all the time in the gym.  And not one person would ever doubt he could bench at least 405.  Really some of these guys need to get out of the house and go to the gym.  Did anyone eatch Pumping Iron and see with your own eyes Lou incline dumbell curling 100 lb dumbells.  Holy shit!  and you don't think he could bench heavy.   Huh Huh

There are lot of stupid teenagers/21ish year olds on this board.  I'm convinced judging by threads like this and others.  Afterall the board steroid "guru" is a whole 19 years old.  LMAO!  What a joke!

im 100% sure lou couldve done 405 for reps easily in the pumping iron days,but 560 is alot of weight for even the strongest bodybuilders,who knows?i heard casey viator was prolly the strongest bodybuilder in the late 70,s.

Wasn't even in shape for this.  400 would have been a joke.

In the early 80's, he claimed a bench press of 420 pounds for reps for his training for the movie Hercules. Dude was over 6'4" and had a legit 60" chest and 23.5" arms at 330 pounds in 1993.

Pretty sure big Lou could bench over 500. Lou was massive, you just don't get that way without moving some heavy Iron.
   Wes- I can understand judging by your build how you could see it the other way. I myself benched 445 for a single, my best ever. I did this at 225 pounds bw, I have long arms like Lou and, Lou has much more mass than I, Lou had to be strong.

I saw Lou like I said alot at the original World Gym.  He was getting ready to go to Italy for Hercules.  He was HUGE.  He trained in a torn flannel shirt and was just unreal.  I don't remember watching him lift heavy weights.  I did do curls with him a few times.  But, at that time he was the biggest person I had ever seen.  Just awesome looking.

i agree. the guy was 6'6"..and thick across the pecs.

He got to 315 in contest shape.

i cant see any reason why he wouldnt have benched high 500s for a single..if he chose to.

heck, 400 for reps seems very weak for a 330+ lb guy to me.

either way, he was big enough to be able to do, or he was just not mechanically configured for good benching so didnt do it.

if it was based on size alone, then you'd think he could do it.

Who cares,I benched 300 at 155 pounds!!

Lou wasn`t as strong as he looked.........big does not always equate to strong.

great clip ...you have to love 70's tv.....4 things i noticed....1. i never realized matty ferrigno was gay 2. lou was incredibly skinny off the juice which i assume he was  he had "spaghetti arms"  3. for a guy who made his fame through bodybuilding/lifting weights he had the worst form of anyone on the clip     4. even matty realized his son/bodybuilders weren't athletes
