Most consecutive bench presses underwater
  • This record is for the most consecutive bench presses completed in apnea underwater.
  • This record is to be attempted by an individual.
  • This record is measured by the number of correctly executed bench presses the individual can perform whilst submerged underwater.
  • For the purposes of this record, all bench presses must be performed to the following standard: The applicant is lying on a bench, with the shoulder blades pinched together to create a stable, solid base for the press. They keep their feet flat on the ground or at end of the bench, with the buttocks always in contact with the bench. They grip the bar with their equidistant from the centre, with the elbows bent to 90° and the elbows beneath the wrists. Before the attempt starts, the applicant gets ready by lifting the bar off the pins, and lowering it until it is no more than 5 cm (1.96 in) above the chest. It is also acceptable to lower the bar all the way to the chest if preferred. The bar is then extended until the arms are locked before being lowered to no more than 5 cm (1.96 in) above the chest. This is one repetition.
  • Note that this record will not be further sub-categorised based on the specific form used.
