Seems like Jen has really rustled your Jimmies.
He was probably one of the guys in the vid.
Not a huge arch, and her grip is well inside the rings. @UFC Truck was just joking I hope...
People want to believe she's cheating.
Lol, that chick makes the same "who me" expression in every video I see of her
Well, it does not make sense. She (drug free lady) broke men's records (maybe 1 or 2 guys are ahead). It's unusual for a natural 132 lbs woman to bench press 325 lbs RAW.
Not raw, she has wrist wraps.
Sorry, maybe next time, Jen.
This, no one benches more than teh 275
Her record is in powerlifting watch. She's a powerlifter and it's already in the record list. But what is doubtful is she claims to be natural (drug free).
you tested her yourself?
Lol. No, what is hard to understand is April Mathis benched 457 lbs (the highest raw for women) at about 275 lbs. Now, Jennifer Thompson benched 325 lbs at 132 lbs. The best pound for pound lifter is drug free?
you mean a top-tier lifter claims to be drug free?!
I just read an interview with her and she's been competing since 1999. That's a lot of time under the bar. Prior to that, she had an athletic background too.
Edit: Also just saw that she benched 271 lbs in the year 2000 in her second year of powerlifting. She obviously has a talent for it. I don't think it's far fetched that she got to 320 lbs without assistance. That's 50 lbs increase over 17-18 years.
It's about weight to power ratio. She used to compete in geared bench press (not RAW). Do you think it's very much possible naturally for a 132 lbs woman to bench press 325 lbs RAW?
April Mathis (the strongest woman in the world) - benched 457 lbs RAW at 275 lbs. weight to power ratio = 1.7
Jennifer Thompson - benched 325 lbs RAW at 132 lbs. weight to power ratio = 2.5
The strongest pound for pound woman is drug free. Haha
Again, she seems to have very much rustled your Jimmies.
Nobody would care if they didn’t claim drug free. It’s not much different than fake plates. Only difference is you still have to put in the work
Looking at "weight to power ratio" as if it is linear is completely ignorant. According to Powerlifting Watch, Mike Booker benched 392 lbs at 123 lbs. Meanwhile, Steve Wong is at 633 lbs at 308 lbs.
What is funny is seeing your change in tune throughout this thread. Now, all of the sudden, you are positive that she's on roids.
Mike Booker (not drug tested) competed in bench press only where as Jennifer Thompson is a powerlifter. Jennifer ranks probably 2nd among men for the same weight class. Probably 1st for the drug free meet. The best pound for pound bencher is actually a woman. That's why it is hard to believe she is natural.
You're natural until proven unnatural.
Well then all the worlds strongest men are natural
