This year on January 8th Joe broke the IPA world record at 148lbs. with a bench of 475lbs at the IPA Gorilla warfare bench comp. (this is the same meet that Mike Miller squatted 1200lbs.). I then broke Markus Schick's All-Time World Record with a 520lb bench at a bodyweight of 147.5 lbs.at Sandy McCaslin's APF Candyazz Classic on February 19, 2005 in Tribes Hill, NY
These lifts qualify Joe to compete at the BBFC in October & if he places top 5 there it will get him into the 2006 Arnold.
