On This Day In Strength History

Reg Park bench pressed 500 Lbs., April 23, 1954, at around 225 bodyweight at a Health and Strength show in Bristol. I was the first in the UK and second in the world to bench over five hundred.  Doug Hepburn was the first person in the world to bench 500 pounds on May 28, 1953 at around 285 bodyweight.
