    2. Mark Coleman - 600 lb. bench press (can anybody verify this?...he doesn't look like he could bench this much)
    3. Tank Abbot - we've all seen the vid...600 lb. bench press
    4. Bob Sapp - 585 lb. bench press, 420 lb. power clean, 800 lb. squat
    5. Brock Lesnar (futur mma fighter) - 475 lb. bench, 695 lb. squat
    6. Royce Gracie - 10 lb. bench press
    7. Jerome Le Banner - 353 lb. bench
    8. Ron Waterman - 500 lb. bench
    9. Gary Goodridge - 585 lb. bench
    10. Scott Ferrozzo (the big guy who beat tank) - 500 lb. bench
    11. Mark Kerr - 505 lb. bench, 800 lb. squat
    12. Marko Filipovic - benches 330 3 times, which is about 356 lb. max
    13. Kevin Randleman - claims to max in the 300's on the bench

    big bench usually = bad shoulders. But more importantly = useless

    it increases bulk and core strength and it probably the best weight excercise to get that v taper look bodybuilders strive for

    you're right, big benches are useless in fighting...but are still good for impressing women :)

    Bench makes your triceps grow bigger and you can hit harder

    I mean if you are even wondering about how fun it would be to have a man lick you butthole while he gives you a reach around you can't really call yourself straight.

    I think believing in God is similar in very important ways.

    Although I guess that would make atheism pretty much like gayness.
