Adrian Larsen is a bench press specialist, and an unique one at that;  if you saw Adrian's numbers, you would be impressed, but if you saw a video of Adrian lifting, you would be freaking amazed. Adrian Larsen 710 at WABDL Worlds

I saw Adrian bench at this years Kings of Bench, and when I saw him bench the first thing i said, "we need to get him on the show".  You see, Adrian was born with dislocated hips and a club feet.  Doctors told his parents he would never walk. When he began walking they said he would never walk without assistance. He promptly proceeded to walk without assistance and then to participate in organized sports such as basketball!

Adrian then met the sport of powerlifting in high school, and of course was told he would never be able to bench 400lb.. Good call, because now Adrian has benched 540lb raw (ranked number 4 on PLwatch) and over 700 equip and is considered one of the top bench press specialist in the game today. 

Listen as we talk to Adrian about his training, his past and future competitions and his views on powerlifting and the direction in which it going.
