An incredible feat of strength by the strongest bencher in the world today! 770 is a good squat or deadlift by any standard, but to bench press this insane amount of weight raw is amazing. In 1972 Jim Williams held the bench record at 675 (albeit with elbow wraps- legal at that time) and that took around 23 years to break when James Henderson hit 700 and eventually 710 in the mid 90's. We've since had lifters like Mendelson, Spoto and Sarychev inch that record up but Julius is taking it into another level. He is now 30 pounds away from the magical 800 lb mark.
