      There isn't much to tell, I'm a nobody. I never did anything worth noting.  I competed only once, and I did it when I had just turned 16. It was the Swedish national champisonship and I blew the whole competition and finished last. I was so ashamed of it I never competed again after that, had friend and family there. I did 130kg then at 96kg bw, so nothing worth mentioning. I had done 140kg in training back then. This record exists online to prove I was there, but if you are interested I'd rather show it in pm. Had a goal of competing again when I were sure I had a legit chance to win. That, in my mind, never happened. Like I said, I looked at those guys who won their classes and I were never good enough to touch them, in training that is, so I never bothered to try again in competition.  I didn't compared myself to him, didn't even know who that was. I just took him as an example of someone with freak genetics. I was, as Paul himself says, never of that caliber. Not for a lack of trying though.  My best lift % wise is in fact a 2xbw lift, 160kg at 80kg bw. Training lift without pause. Have not done it under contest conditions. Even if that would be the case, I would not have had a chance to win. Hence why I dont consider it a big deal, it isn't enough. My biggest is 187.5 kg at around 100kg bw, using a very big arch. I have had a couple of videos a few years ago, I think I have a video of me doing 170kg with my feet in the air, around 90kg bw, I'll see when I get home from work if I still have that Phone somewhere. That would be the only video that'll somewhat prove I could do what I say. I was the best when I were around 20-21. 27 now.  One of the guys I compared myself to then has a paused raw at around 215 at 90kg bw now I think. Came 2nd at wc behind some american guy.  I recently started benching again after not doing it for years, I am nowhere close to a 2xbw bench at the time. I'm looking to put up 170kg in a couple of months at a bw of around 100kg. Maybe I'll make a video. Dont really feel the need though.

      I dont blame genetics for any of my not so great lifts. I pretty much chalk it up to my own laziness in the past. Gotta put time in on that to get good at it. Golf clap to the guys who just walk up and do it tho.   id like to hear more on your bench, if possible. Best 1rm, bw when it happened, contest lifts, etc.? and who were these guys that came in and out did you on the bench? Were they your weight, lighter, or much heavier? And from the sounds of things, you didnt know them personally. Who knows if they juiced or not. All those things should have been a definite factor before you compared yourself to them. Otherwise there is no comparison. you compared your bench to Kirills??.. lol, why did you do that? Sounds like you are on the lighter spectrum if bw benches are no biggie. And There is no logical reason at all for a lightweight to compare their bench to Kirills. He is too strong. any vids of your benching?
