    Handling 315 with such ease like that is absolutely insane.

    Bench press numbers are what we're gauging fight ability on now?

    The 13-year-old girl was using a bench shirt, her chest way up in the air (not that it's illegal) and spotters monitoring every inch of it. So in all likelihood 300 is not only way over her real unassisted maximum bench press, but it's also dangerous and stressful to her body.

    Thus I don't think she'll be in any bench press competitions for a few years.

    That was more of a 'bounce pass' than a true bench press, but he got it down and up on his own so its still very impressive.

    So Carmouche can do 225 6X? I woulda bet against it, maybe one rep at 225 I would have believed but not 6

    TS: How did she ever lose to RR with such incredible MMA bench pressing abilities??

    Again, very impressive, but these are not bench presses, they are little more than bench 'vibrations'

    If he were to do real presses here he could prob still do 20 which would be awesome at 315lbs!

    Thats kilos not pounds. 60kg = 135lbs. She does KB swings with more than 60 lbs

    She's a woman, so physiologically it's obviously nothing compared to a guy at her weight...however, her 'strength' comes from her exceptional technique and leverage.

    Everyone knows that bench press ability determines fighting ability

    That's a horrible gauge and you should feel horrible for even mentioning it.

    Benching is hardly a measure of coolness, ability, or anything else. It's not the only exercise in the gym.

    If you had read the whole post you might see that I'm explaining why her 300-pound lift wasn't what it seemed to be.
