    Ooooooor....he could just of been seething in jealousy that someone he can lift a bit more weight than for 1 rep completely blew him away at lifting a heavy weight for more reps.

    It's Bill Kazmaier, pretty sure a prime kaz could squat a real 500 for 20+ given he could bench 500 for 15 and triple 900 squats.

    Fake weights for a set that really isn’t that impressive?? Tons of bodybuilders have replicated an even surpassed that set by platz. Hell he wasn’t even in his prime.

    Platz was in his 60s still repping 405 with picturesque form.

    Thanks for proving my point. The Golden eagle is a damn anomaly among men, the result of putting almost all your skill points into one attribute.

    Not sure of any other bodybuilders that replicated anything close to that, but I’m sure there are some mass monsters who have.

    He was the first. There have been tons of guys with bigger legs, but his hold up even to today cause his separation is other worldly.

    But in terms of how the 500 for 23 stacks up to other bodybuilders it isn’t that great. Justin Harris did 600 for 15. Hollingshead and akim rep 675+ easily. Johnnie morant would rep 700. Hadi is doing the same.

    But again platz wasn’t even in his prime for that set. In his prime he would’ve far exceeded 23

    Also, what does this mean? Like their dedication to one single exercise?

    Rows always seem to give me that good feeling

    It also feels great to complete a good set of pullups!

    I chose pullups but not for hypertrophy but because they're more athletic.

    edit: not sure if that's allowed sorry.

    But it looks way easier than it is and undedicated lifters don't do it. Not saying anything against the OHP besides the fact that it's not a crowd favorite.

    Is that the 600x15 set you're talking about?

    500x23 with full depth is way, way, way stronger than that






    vs

    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8, 195x5
    Deadlift: 405x10, 445x5 (dead stop w/ straps)

    I don't really have a favourite, I dread them all lol.

    Years ago dead lift was my favourite, but now I have a dodgy lower back, which I'm nursing right now actually after dead lifting at the weekend, so it's just not something I can do effectively any longer.

    So I'd perhaps say pull-ups, on the basis that not many people do them, and 3 years ago I couldn't do a single rep (I can now do them weighted). It's also the one exercise that becomes easier on a cut lol.

    If your form is strict I'd say that's pretty impressive. I'm 190lbs and can do 50kg for about 7 reps. I imagine 60kg I'd get 1-2 reps max. But overall I've always looked stronger than I am, but been a bit on the weak side for reasons unknown.
