Heaviest Bench Press
Heaviest bench press! Who has recorded the heaviest bench press? I get asked this question all the time so I thought I'd make a page about it. The big man who's holds the world record for the heaviest bench press is Gene Rychlak Jr. Gene has recorded a huge bench press of 1005 pounds (457kg). Gene's heaviest bench press record is contantly challenged by other big benchers link Scot Mendelson, Ryan Kennelly and Shawn Lattimer.
At this stage Scot looks to be in the best position to break Gene's heaviest bench press record. Scot has had many attempts at over 1000 pounds and only narrowly missed them. It's only a matter of time before the record falls. Scots most recent bench press attempt was 1031lbs which he successfully completed but was not given the record on a technicality.
Here we've got some pictures of the worlds heaviest bench press holder, the big man Gene Rychlak Jr.!
