  • our best bencher

    This is the best bencher from my country, Serbia. Among the total of 7 million citizens here, there are only about 150-200 registered powerlifters.

    This november (from 11-16th) he will be competing at the GPC World Powerlifting Championships. We are all hoping that he will be the best there...

    His best result so far in a competition was a 748 lbs bench (single ply), athough he has done a 792 lbs bench in training...

    His name is Rade Savic, 27 year old, weighs 308 lbs...

    Here's a video of him benching:

    And you can see his pic here:

    is he going to Latvia to the meet ? my Israeli mates are on their way.
    I noticed safety rails on the bench.

      I thought I was the only Israeli on here, good to know we represent a little bit. I lived there for a short while and have been there ~20 times and not only have I not seen any powerlifters around, I've barely seen anyone there that looks like they lift weights. Where are they hiding out at?

        Well, judging by this thread there are at least 3 of us.
        This is an Irony Point- ؟

          I really don't know, I don't know him in person, I've just read the article about him recently...

          I've been competing in PL up to the year 2000, and have been a WPA judge for a while, but since then I have no idea what's going on, obviously there are some promising youngsters on the scene, which is great...

          In my time we had a 533 lbs raw bencher, which was unheard of in my country...

                      I was there this past summer and trained in this rinky-dink gym in Malcha, a suburb of Jerusalem. It's in the Malcha Mall, where there used to be a movie theater. As far as as where I've been, pretty much everywhere. Any tips on where the good gyms are at? I'd like to hit one up the next time I head out there. I'm not a PL'er but I appreciate a good gym.
