Our local news down here in New Zealand has said Dexter claims a bench of 250kg.
Is this true? Ive seen him perform a very shakey lift with 180kg/400pds for 5-6 reps.

Maybe for a single at a very high bf% but what do you guys think of this claim?

550 raw, I doubt it. Funny how these guys never enter a power lifting contest to prove all the BS they spew out.

Exactly. Dexter never looks more than a month out from a show.

hahahhaaa, they felt guilty for giving him unfettered access to dozens of Krispy Kremes as a kid so they bought him a dirtbike with extra strong suspension and springs able to support his 423 pounds of fat.

size and strength are not correlated directly.

you've obviously never seen a clip of Dexter training, he has to lift his ass off the bench to get his 5th rep with 405 in the offseason, how dos that equate to 5 45's and a quarter on each side of the bar, it doesn't, he can't bench 550, in reality he can get 445-450 for a good single which is still VERY IMPRESSIVE.

I'm just simply contesting your point that his height and weight insinuates that he isn't capable of lifting that amount of weight.

i'll tell you this much, you could count on one hand the number of men in the history of the world who have benched 550 RAW not shirted but RAW at 220-225 pounds bodyweight and i'll GAURANTEE you that Dexter ain't one of them.

Yup. There's also an article on this site from 2003 where Dex says "I get stronger the closer I get to the show. At 12 weeks out I can bench 405 or 500 5 or 6 times, but 2 or 3 weeks out I can bench it 12-15 times."  Roll Eyes

I've seen the BFTO and Dex benches 405 for 8 when he's a week and a half out, and the second time he does it 6 with help. Still really strong but he claims twice the amount of reps and I don't respect that.
