ActivitiesGuy Log III: Chasing The 700 Pound Deadlift


#1863

Lol, indeed, 515 double overhand axle pull with no straps would be close to the IronMind Apollon’s Axle world record.

I prefer doing most of my heaviest pulls with straps so grip isn’t a concern, but I try to do just enough strapless work so I have confidence that I can still pull a decent weight without them.

Worked out at 7AM today because I’m going to the NCAA wrestling tournament with my brother and my dad. 525 felt a little sluggish so I decided to take a small jump and finish at 555.

How was the wrestling action?

How big is Carl Sanderson’s head in real life? Dude’s melon looks enormous on TV.

It was awesome, especially the semifinals/blood round session. Really glad we went. The ticket prices were more than we had originally expected, but my brother and I had been talking about going to the NCAA championships as sort of a bucket-list thing to do with our dad (he’s in great health and ought to be around for a long while yet, but still, you never want to put something like this off and regret it).

I’m not sure I got that much closer of a look at Cael’s head than you would have from TV, lol.
