VIDEO Flashback: MHP’s Clash of the Titans II & Kings of the Bench III (2009 Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo)

/ Posted 06.28.2011

This was our second promotion that included the classic squat (walked out, taken below parallel and only employing the aide of a powerlifting belt and a pair of knee wraps.) MHP’s Kings of the Bench III & Clash of the Titans II took place at The 2009 Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo. It was our first time at this tradeshow and we got things started off with a bang! I’m very happy to report that we’re planning on returning to The Ronnie Coleman Classic in April of 2012.

For this particular competition we used the progressive bar load system instead of the three attempt system. We were hoping that this format would make the competition more viewer friendly. But one or two of the lifters, who were not in contention for the prize money, held up the process by taking series of attempts that took up stage time without changing their standings. So, after this experiment, we returned to the modern format of three attempts per lifter per barbell lift.
