Hardcore Powerlifting Welcomes SSP Nutrition As The New Official Supplement Line of The Kings of the Bench
The Hardcore Powerlifting Federation welcomes Dennis Cieri’s SSPNutrition.com on board as the new and exclusive supplement line of BOAD’s Kings of the Bench Invitational!
Athletes and fans of classic powerlifting can check out SSP’s impressive website at http://www.SSPNutrition.com
Dennis Cieri, the CEO and Founder of SSP Nutrition, has been a top name in the drug tested, raw and single ply shirt competition bench world for years. At the 6th Annual IPF / NAPF Powerlifting Championship, Cieri broke the 205lb division raw & drug tested record with an astounding 507 pound push.
The AAU was the first governing body to sanction the sport of powerlifting on a national level (1964) and Dennis has made his mark in that league as well, hitting 518lbs @ 212 under raw and drug tested conditions.
The teaming up of SSP Nutrition with The Hardcore Powerlifting Federation couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. This is the first time one of our pro shows are taking place in conjunction with The 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation’s Drug Tested World Championship. This combination of events makes it easy for powerlifters and powerlifting fans to pick the “Must See Powerlifting Show of The Fall Season.” There will be three full days of world class, drug tested, amateur lifting capped off by our Hardcore Powerlifting sanctioned (also raw, but professional and not involving drug testing) BOAD’s Kings of the Bench $7,000 Invitational. Dennis Cieri’s also put himself at the top of the ladder in The 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation as well, benching an amazing 529 pounds @ 198lbs of body weight and in the 40-44 year old masters division! This shows that Cieri’s both a top competitor in the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation AND a sponsor of Hardcore Powerlifting efforts to develop the professional wing of the game.
SSPNutrition.com is supplying Hardcore Powerlifting with funding to further improve their stage production and to enhance their pre-contest advertising + they’ve thrown an additional $500 on to the prize money pile, bringing the total cash up for grabs to a record setting $7,000 (the most money Hardcore Powerlifting has ever been able to offer to the light heavyweights and heavyweight divisions.)

Mr. Cieri has informed me that SSP Nutrition is planning on putting a good deal of their corporate funding and support behind the sport of powerlifting. Dennis lifts in the USAPL, IPF, 100% RAW, AAU organizations and he won both the 2004 and 2005 BenchAmerica drug tested pro championships in Chicago (which is where I first got to see him compete, as I was the 3rd man in the broadcast team the first time around and the technical analyst for BA3.)
So, SSP Nutrition has proven itself to be strong supporters of all of the respectable versions of the sport of powerlifting and Cieri, the company’s CEO, has tested his might and come out at the top in the best drug tested federations in the world (IPF, USAPL, 100% RAW, AAU and BenchAmerica.) With Cieri taking and passing WADA approved drug tests + the polygraph required by BenchAmerica, it makes his nutritional supplement line all the more impressive as these are the real “products” he’s using to supplement his nutritional and recovery program.
The Hardcore Powerlifting Federation thanks Dennis Cieri and SSP Nutrition for coming on board and for helping to fund BOAD’s Kings of the Bench Invitational in Las Vegas this October. Thanks to SSP’s help and assistance, the prize money now stands at $7,000 and we will have more money than ever before for promoting the return and rise of classic (raw) powerlifting as it now takes its place as the dominant and most popular version of this athletic discipline.
