    The bench is Scott Mendelson 875 lbs (397kg)
    The Squat is Steve Goggins 1102 lbs (499kg)
    The Deadlift is Andy Bolton 933 lbs (423kg)

    I think these are current.

    Here is the collated (i.e. all federations included) list of men's powerlifting world records:

    http://www.powermagonline.com/latest-news/records.asp

    The list isn't completely up to date as Garry Frank did 2672 (1014-755-903) for a new SHW world record total last saturday (18/10/2003). He just missed out on a 2760 total when his 1102 squat was judged a bit high.

    Thanks for that guys.
    That bench is .............? I dunno. Words fail me.
    I was suprised that there was such little difference between the top bench and the top deadlift though. NUTS!

    Good point. In the late 90s wasn't the bench 'only' around the mid 700s? So why has it rocketed in the last few years?[?]

    That was a silver dollar deadlift, not a regular deadlift. The silver dollar deadlift is essentially a partial deadlift because the bar starts 18" of the ground.

    Try www.metalmilitia.net, the squat record now belongs to Brent Mikesell (I THINK it was 1107lb). Thanks for the article on Andy Bolton Andy Bolton, very cool!
