650 DL @ 200Ibs Drug Free

Very strong pull however I don’t believe it would have counted in a competition due to the hitch.

Good pull.

Why do people say “drug free”? Who cares if you’re on or off?

Haha seriously thats one of the most important factors to mention cause people become so much stronger using roids, it is so much harder and more rewarding doing it the real way without steroids. And btw very nice lift :wink:

Really hope that’s sarcasm. I WISH all you had to do was put a needle with some roids in your shoulder and be able to handle some weight.

Why do people say they’re “ballin” 4 Christ? Who cares if you’re ballin’ for him or the other guy?

Seriously though, there’s a very substantial difference between the natty and PED user, if you can’t understand the difference, I’m sorry.

Having said that, I still don’t go posting “drug-free” on all my vids, partially because I know I don’t use, and aside from powerlifting feds, I don’t much care who else thinks I do or don’t use. To include youtube lol.

Nice pull, but major hitch. Get that issue resolved and you’re good to go.

Ballin4Christ is a weird fucking name.

I think calling it the “real” way is retarded and a little offensive to whose who choose to use, but it is nice to know when someone achieves a really high level of strength drug-free.

Come on now, we all know the US Marine Corp gave you the super soldier serum.

Love the pull; don’t give a shit if there was a hitch or not.

Here’s an example of why it’s nice to hear someone say “drug free”. It doesn’t have anything to do with what people think of you or how hard you worked. It’s just providing me with an example that this guy who is the same bodyweight as me, was able to accomplish this lift without drugs. And that’s just one more data point telling me “if he can do that without steroids, so can you”.

Russ from last night, drug free, 617lb at aprox 185

I am always happy to know when people state they are drug free. It shows me that they care. Because honestly if he was on (whisper whisper) the steroids (end whisper) he would be hitting wayy closer to 4,500 lbs on his DL. That is why a safer tactic is to just divide by 43 when someone posts a video that does not specify “drug free”

Sounds legit

Personally, I think drug-free is nice to hear. Granted drugs can only help you so much, but there is a difference. Either way, that’s a strong pull, and good for you! I hope to pull that much at the same weight some day.

Enjoying all the roid users pretending it makes little difference. ‘Steroids for strength? Naaaa, I just like sticking things in my ass.’

Yeah will be working on cleaning it up a bit.

Strong lift btw, pity about the hitch though

My favorite part was the over the top music and how it perfectly aligned with your hitch.

Great strength, no grip issues, but your form needs some work. You spend a long time bent over prior to beginning your pull.

The next time I watch a video that is 90% some guy “psyching up” for a lift, and 10% the lift, I am going to punch the internet in the face.

No, this isn’t a bash on just you, OP, it’s a trend I see far too often.
