Jesus, people are ******ed.

Savickas is such a sicko.

DOHing 430kg with only straps/a belt is just too sick.

He tries to defend the warmup statement by showing a video of Dimas power cleaning 375. Like rly? Dimas is representative of the "average Oly lifter" like Tory Lane is representative of the average woman in bed.

Re: **8*8*8 March version Two(2) ***88***8

Decided to watch some Dimas videos, I really enjoy youtube comments and figured I'd share this one:

usually, when people compete for Maxing out when it comes to weights, they dont focus much on tecnique. For instance, when you bench press and do reps, you want to have your back laid flat. But when they compete for Maxing out, everyone arches their back

Dimas is a God.
Tory Lane might be too dirty.

Back to your regularly scheduled discussion.

Went to BK to pick up some $1 double cheeseburgers and saw this ridiculous sign. I made Dids take a picture of me and it:

Some lols over Carwin "only" power cleaning 400lbs. Numerous people are citing how "unimpressive" this is.
the bench part later is even better. guy "walkmyline" had multiple 500lb benchers at his high school.

Work out shoes like chucks etc.

I get how you can lift more because it has a firm heel and the sole that doesnt cushion like a running shoe. But does it really benefit your strength or anything of value.

Just because you can lift more doesnt mean it makes you stronger. So is the push for workout shoes simply so that you get personal bests?

Did you see his defense later linking a 355lbs bench that is quite dubious on hip action/leg drive.

No. The push for "workout shoes" is so you can effectively transfer all of your strength to the floor without an inherently unstable surface disrupting this kinetic chain. Additionally, since running/crosstraining shoes are unstable and do not transfer force efficiently, they can cause increased rates of injury due to failing lifts or forcing people into bad form patterns as a result.

So no. They are not for "personal best" records. It's just stupid to squat on an unstable surface, much like you wouldn't try moving a couch into a living room while pillows were strapped to your feet.

yeah. i also searched youtube for his high school bench clubs and found nothing of the sort.

the guy who did bench the 355 is a conundrum though.

They leaned backward because they had a tendency to kill each other.
