Interview Eric Spoto and Stan Efferding

Did you see Kings of Bench 8?  It was the competition debut of Eric "The Vanilla Gorilla" Spoto as he exploded on the scene with a 700lb bench being only 1 of 3 in history to do so.  Did you expect him to break the all time record at Kings?  Did you wonder why he didn't? 

3 weeks later Eric attempted to break Scot Mendelson's All Time Bench Record of 715lb at the Backyard Meet of the Century, and was unsuccessful.  Eric opened up with record att 716lbs, did you wonder why? Did you expect him to blow it out of the water and hit atleast 750? 

Did you wonder if the Kings of the Bench hurt his chance to break the record at the Backyard Meet? 

Listen as Trace and I ask all these questions and more....

Also Stan "The Rhino" Efferding will be joining Eric to talk about his thoughts on what happened at the Kings and at Backyard Meet.   Not only about Eric's miss of the all time record, but also about his unfortunate bomb out in the squat. 

We all also find out what in store for two of the strongest raw lifters in the history of the sport.
