Tom Martin - 180kg raw
 
When his leg/back injury clears up, he'll be scary!

180kg raw bench press from a lanky deadlift spastic. Sugden Barbell.

With arms that long that is some ludicrous strength.

Tom Martin is simply unbelievable. How on earth does a man that size bench 180?

Ridiculously strong.

The nice thing is he not only has unbelievable natural talent for strength, but he really knows what he's talking about. I've picked up a lot from chatting to him about squat form, flexibility, bench technique etc. It's refreshing to see a guy who's naturally strong but at the same time is so technically proficient, humble and willing to share.

In my eyes, that he beat Coan's Junior record already puts him as being one of the finest deadlifters ever, which came after a relatively short time in the sport. I think as long as he can recover from his sciatica he has potential to be one of the greatest powerlifters of all time.

That boy's not right, to use a redneck phrase. He drinks gorilla blood.

Insane strength, seen a lot of his dead and squat video's but never took him for a strong bencher. Unbelievably strong.
