Condidionts of the First Last Man Standing
This is where it started - From Vincent Dizenzo - We (Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate) are throwing out a last man standing bench press challenge at the PA State Powerlifting Meet in Lancaster. We want to get multiply benching back at the Arnold and this is how we think we can do it. We need to put on a kick ass exhibition and show them what we are capable of.
The rules were simple. The bar will start at 700 lbs. for Heavyweights (221lbs & up) and 550 lbs for Lightweights (220 and lower) and jump 50/25 lbs. each round. You can have one missed attempt and retake the weight at the end of the round. Any ties go to the lighter lifter.
The entry fee for the exhibition will be $50, all of which will go into a pot for the winners heavy and light. I will even sweeten the offer with $250 of my own money for the Heavyweights and RPS is putting up $250 to start for the Lightweights.
This is by no means trying to replace standard powerlifting. We are simply trying to put on a crowd pleasing event where a lot of weight gets moved.
