Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany hosts 2013 Bench Press Competition

By Marti Gatlin | | January 24, 2013

Seven men and three women test their abilities in Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany’s 2013 Bench Press Competition at Daniels Fitness Center, Jan. 16. The contestants competed to bench press pound-for-pound over their own body weights to win first, second or third place. After a warm-up, they each conducted three official lifts. According to Whitney Hendrix, fitness director, because none of the women could lift over their body weights, there are no over body weight scores for them. The female winners were based on who lifted closest to their body weights.
