Thomasville - "My bench press has gone up from 380 up to 475 pounds," says Kenny Martin, making it sounds like an infomercial.
He says, "I came up with the Balfour Board press because it's quick, it's convenient, it's lightweight." And one day, it might be available for purchase, just not today.
"This is not a get rich quick, scheme," he says. "I just want to see my potential, what I can do, and what I can help the sport of power lifting do."
Kenny Martin has been involved in power lifting for 17 years, so he knows all the tricks of the trade, but one day he decided to make it easier through an invention he calls the Balfour Board press. The Balfour Board Press is actually a pretty simple concept. It allows you to change the level you're on in between every repetition, rather than waiting in between sets. This way, you can work your sticking point, the level that is most difficult for you.
And like any good infomercial, we have a testimonial to prove it works. "I've tried incline bench press," says friend and weight lifter Robert Walden III. "I've tried holding my hands out wider and getting the right definition, but this is better I think."
But you can't pick up the Balfour Bench Press from your neighborhood sports store just yet, Martin has applied for a patent and is waiting on an investor to help him manufacture it.
And he has no doubt that he will succeed. He says, "Failure is not an option."
If you would like to find out more, contact Kenny Martin at PO Box 873, Thomasville, GA 31799.
