    You referencing Mike Bridges? He was insane. People forget about how crazy his lifts were.

    I've been a big 181 junky for a long time since I used to compete there. I can cut to that class still,...

    Now that you mention it, I would like to rock a pink belt with "SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE" monogrammed on the back at my next powerlifting meet.

    I see this same post every few days. Why do people keep ordering Inzer belts? A newbie kid I trained bought Inzer a plain black belt and singlet something like 3-4 months before his first meet and...

    But this isn't just an either/or thing, is it? It's not just a switch from 100% stable to 100% mobile.

    I don't know if Hamburger covered this (I have a feeling he and I feel the same in this...

    ...as long as he has straps.

    I don't think I've ever seen him pull 880 lbs / 400 kgs without straps. Actually, now that I...

    Crazy.
    That Maliek Derstine performance really lit a fire under your tushy, didn't it?

    HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT, but i don't even have good leverages!
  • Good info here, I'll just add that your bench...

    Good info here, I'll just add that your bench isn't really THAT terrible in relation to your other lifts. I think a lot of people are bench bros and begin training bench before the other lifts, but I...

    Basically, the issue with a Ph.D. in the Humanities is motivation and work ethic. It's like law school or med school in that it is a difficult, graduate degree. What is different is that when you try...

    Just to throw gasoline on the fire, Norris does use a DL bar, which makes a pretty big difference when compared to an IPF bar. I still think Norris would outlift Bell raw if they went head to head,...

    Which spotter? I must be on a different video, because I can't see any spotters that would be touching the bar; I just see the spotter that would be touching Kallas, and he doesn't appear to be...

    It's all relative, breh. When Jezza Uepa squatted 415 oly style in the IPF, it was posted on AllThingsGym, and it was actually the only time I've EVER seen the comments section closed there for...

    Missed this--My Ph.D. is in Early Modern Literature; my undergrad was a double major in History and English.

    Joke's on you; I've killed myself working my lowerbody and neglected upperbody and I still have big arms and small calves.

    Intredasting! I'm a bit embarrassed to say this hasn't ever occurred to me.

    I'm known for my good work ethic in my school/work, and to some extent in the gym, although I haven't had much time for...

    Well, first let me say that I don't ever look at top lifters and think, "Meh, genetics. That guy probably pulled 500 the first time he set foot in the gym. If I had his genetics, I'd be lifting more...

    So, over the past year I've accomplished a bit: finished my Ph.D. and gotten a job as an Assistant Professor at a private university. But I've made ZERO PRs.... not a single one.

    Yeah, it's only happened to me once. I didn't know if USAPL had some weird thing about it, though.

    I'd also add that it's a little easier to specialize in one lift. It's possible that guy could be a great squatter as well, but I think probably he doesn't squat or deadlift all that much since he...
