World Record Raw Bench Press by Eric Spoto

November 2nd, 2014 · No Comments · Bench Press, Weight Lifting

See Eric D. Spoto “Vanilla Gorilla” beaking the raw bench press record with a lift of 722lbs (327.5 kg) . The previous record was 715 lbs by Scot Mendelson.  See more about the Bench Press world best scores. Raw bench pressing is done without equipment such as bench shirts. Using such aids there have been lifts above 1000 lbs. I was curious and had to look up what he was sniffing in the video before the lift – and the answer is smelling salts.

EDIT: This record has now been broken by Russian Kirill Sarychev. He lifted 335 kg (738.5lbs) on November 22, 2015.
