This is my friend Kade Weber.
I wanted to post this video because it’s some of the best lifting I’ve ever seen, and at 22 years old he’s 80lbs off the all time record.
I know Kades personal story because I was there for a lot of it. He started lifting around 15 years old, and my friend Anton saw potential in him. Anton was a very smart guy and gave Kade sheiko programs and Kade just did what he was told to do because Anton was the strongest guy in the gym. so for years, he just did the powerlifts over and over, not bothering with fluff and fancy exercises. He started around 170 pounds.
I met Kade in 2008-09 and we were about the same for a few years, we’d train together and push each other. But I wanted to do my own thing, try strongman, yadda yadda, and Kade would just do what his coaches told him.
Fast forward to 2010 Kade squats 585 for the first time, and used the peaking program Russian power that his coach Willie Albert put him on, he missed a 700 deadlift at the knees. He’s 242 now.
2011 he goes about 640-450-750
2012 he goes 700-500-800 with an 800x3 pull in the gym.
I’ve learned all about Kades training, and now I’m doing what he did to get where he is, I sincerely wish I would have started a lot sooner.
