    no lift off, no wrist wraps, no leg drive, a solid pause, and an even lockout



    this is 301kg/662lb at the Paralympics this year that got red lighted for uneven lockout

    That's power. It would be fun to watch him to a big smoky burnout in his wheelchair.

    Amazing.

    And the sad thing is, this won't be strict enough for someone.

    He's too fat, his ROM is too small. Leg straps kept him in place, he would have fallen over without them. What a cheater.

    Those spotters don't really look big enough for the job

    Even more reason to finish each rep I guess.

    Damn, that's impressive, even when disabled he's still one of the strongest people in the world. What happened to his legs?

    That was awesome. Has to be tough to lock out evenly without feel on the ground to balance yourself.

    It's hard for me to wrap my brain around someone getting so close to the raw bench record with no leg drive.

    Would it count as a raw world record if he hit 716? Or is it a separate record?
