Pops benching 340 at age 60

looks like his ass left the bench a bit. But not bad for 60 years old and 210 bw!

 

then did some decent repping with 225

He has always had weights as long as i can remember. He has gone long periods without lifting. But, hes been training bench again off and on for a couple years now. A few years back he was in rough shape, and could barely rep 225 a couple times. I was there to see that and remember sincerely asking if something was wrong with him..

i think that was the day he got back training somewhat frequently again.

Hes pretty stout tho.. he recently did a 100lb db table curl on an arm wrestling table and all that also. Ive seen great pullers not even get a 100lb db table curl. And i still have to go 110% to beat his left at arm wrestling.

 

And in all honesty, hes not super lean.. some of his weight is water. If he got to about 12-15% bf, he’d be under 200. Which basically means he can table curl half his weight with 1 arm. At 60!

 

Btw, i got my high reps on the bench idea from him. I dont see many his age doing what he does. So thats all the proof i need that high reps work. And high reps obviously keep the joints healthy along the way.

Is that a 44lb bar? 340 would be impressive but I think most old guys can do 339

Give your Dad an Atta Boy from another old Geezer - 340# is nothing to laugh at at any age - let alone 60!
