Eric Spoto, King of the Bench Press
Eric Spoto, owner of the raw bench press world record (722 lbs), joins us to talk about his assault on the record two years ago and his plans for the future. We get to the bottom of how he went from a YouTube sensation who had never competed into a world record holder, who influenced his training, and the name of the first powerlifting gym he ever walked into.
