Professionals workout their entire lives to hit goals like this...this kid is just developing and is already beating pro records set by fully developed adults? It's obvious that there had to be something artificial going on here... 5 fakes out of 5. He did it, but not without "aid." Sorry kid

That is..impressive, no doubt.  I do wonder what that man-child can lift without the "bench-press shirt"?  600lbs, 650lbs?!  Any olympic lifters out there have an idea?

(Also, jeebus, to bench that much one has to have a chest the size of a walrus. I'd be able to add 100lbs to my bench if I was only to lower the bar 5 inches.  I don't mean that as an insult, more an observation).

Training with gear is a whole different sport than raw lifting. You have to know how to use a shirt to get anything out of it. Plus, you end up training a ton of lock out stuff since the shirt doesn't do crap at the top end of the lift.

And yes, the whole point of powerlifting is to find the most advantageous way to move the most weight. That's why you see a lot of guys with big arches in order to lessen the ROM. Make no mistake though, this guy is also probably a serious raw bencher as well.

I wonder if this kid knows there's a heart attack in his future.  Probably before the age of 35.

PS. When he grunted all I could see was Jon Belushi.  Made me laugh.

have absolutely zero cardiovascular fitness. They can't run more than 200 meters without gasping for air. Also, athletics required quickness and good mobility. Most of these guys couldn't even get a football helmet on due to their huge steroid enhanced craniums and having their mandibles directly connected to their chest.

Mike Martin benching 500 at 4 reps is more impressive to me.  Especially to be athletic and not a fat midgot. Plus his arms are more than 3 inches long.
