It's not a PR, but it's close. More than anything, I like how I had a horrible clean and still was able to get the lift. This is 2040 foot-pounds of work.

Acutally I'm currently 330.



not that impressive

Interesting comment when the pro strongman I train with does about the same amount of work with his max log as I do with mine. But thanks, I need some good haters lately, seems like the others I had for a while have stopped hating as much lately.

Very nice lift. That was fun to watch.

I am curious how the ft-lbs are figured. I'm used to seeing that as energy or torque.

Dude, I was only kidding... hence the trollface cartoon. I would never belittle anyone's achievements with my crappy lifts LOL.

if ya put the log on a weight scale how much would it say it weighed ?

You had to see the other thread where all the shorter guys were saying BTO's lifts werent impressive.

It's 240 pounds. yeah, yeah, I know my overhead press sucks, but I do lift it to 8.5 feet, and thus my work done thread.

I thought you were joking, sometimes it's hard to tell in text ( which is also why I don't let things on here get to me, and haters do motivate me ).

Na dude, although I am not as tall as you I have a 6'9" wingspan working against me in the gym. Watching you do all that crazy strongman stuff (at your size) is inspirational (no homo)

Yeah work ( or energy) and torque are dimensionally equivalent, but they are different physical quantities, and work is a scalar and torque is a vector ( it has a direction, work doesn't ). To calcualte work done against gravity, you multiply the weight of an object by the vertical component of the distance it travels.

It amazes me how someone can lift that much! damn.

Now the vid didn't show it but how did the guy put that thing down? drop it or others grab it...not familiar with this kind of sport....saw it once on tv.

That's what the tires on the ground are for, you basically drop it ( with your hands on it, guiding it down ) onto the tires. The plates are bumper plates too, and are made to be dropped.

Cool. I kinda thought it would be weight over distance...and you have lots of distance to go!

awww, go on and admit, you get off on him!

lol......

Bill: I knew you were joking but our resident strong man didn't...it is easy to get confused like that sometimes on the net....

we all look up to the OX and his accomplishments....

Nice vid...first it looked easy, then hard, then easy, then hard. lol I can tell you're a strong mofo when you lift it up to your shoulders without swinging it up there, then only did a partial push in your press to finish it off. Does that even make sense?

Strong work!

It's impressive to me because I understand the leverage he's fightng against. Used to piss me off to no end watching guys rep 225 when I had to move the bar unracking it further than they did their entire lift LOL.

Come on MAN! Most every lifter under 6 feet KNOWS that there is no real weightlifting leverage advantage to being shorter.....









YES, JOKE!
Nice BTO!

How the hell does a 240lb OHpress suck!

I think he is comparing himself to other PLers/Strongmen. When you put yourself up against them, it's not uncommon to have a 300+ overhead.

Don't get wrapped up too much in the number, even if you are a Strongman/PLer. It's a competition against yourself too, not just everyone else. You know how far you have come and where you started, that's what matters.
