...and why?

Me: Anthony Clark, in the 90's his quest for that big bench was just incredible.

Btw, where he's now and what he's doing?

Lamar Gant. Who still holds ( I believe) the world record deadlift of 683lbs @132. I was lifting in the same weight class at the time.

It was a shame about Anthony. I was always amazed at his reverse grip style!!

my old friend Jay Rosciglione from my former gym is one of the all time greats at 165, squatted 765, benched 415 and pulled 695 in the old APF in the mid 90's.

Why?

cole's and kuc's lift have never been equaled raw.
