New record: USAPL Bench Press Nationals

September 13, 2010

A belated congratulations goes out to Chris Asbury for setting a state record bench  press at the 2010 USAPL Bench Press Nationals held  August 29 in Charlottesville, VA.  Lifting in the equipped, open 242 division, Chris bench pressed an amazing 617 and placed second.  Chris made the lift on the first attempt.

Chris’ success was not without controversy, though.  For his second attempt Chris called for 639, got fired up, pushed the weight to lock out and got the lift passed,  two to one.  Or, so he thought…

The platform referees ruled the lift good, but the jury sitting next to the platform thought otherwise.  They used their overriding powers to disqualified the lift, saying the bar went back down momentarily during the ascent (USAPL/IPF rules governing disqualification of  a bench press relating to this matter state: “any downward movement of the whole of the bar in the course of being pressed out.”).

Chris took the 639 lbs over on the third attempt but to no avail.  He was pushed out at that point.  Sometimes it’s quite devastating to lose an all-time best lift to a controversial technicality such as that just described.

Once again…
