600lb bench press is rare enough... it is really rare when you do it in a full meet. Most of those guys are bench specialists.

he squatted 765 and deaded 585 and he called it an "off day". I think he has squatted 826 in competition before...

Not the prettiest reps, but damn sure looked like 600 for 3 to me!

Nick's a beast, although with multiple pec surgeries at such a young age I hope he can keep healthy lifting raw. Insanely strong

I just read a youtube comment on a lifting vid about how 'lots of people bench 600 in my gym'. Love it :D

Most guys with large waist dont pull well

I dont think even westside has many 600 lbs + raw benchers

how would a wide waist hinder your deadlifts?

much harder to get down to the bar.

Short arms are a greater mechanical disadvantage (and this would seem to obtain in respect of Wilkerson) for DL, while they aid the bench - cf. e.g. Stanaszek.

Ronnie Coleman begs to differ.
