American Chopper!


#1

For anyone that watches that show, its pretty damn good, Paul Sr. benched 405 pretty handily. Not bad for someone in his late 50's


#2

That's not bad for any age.


#3

Very true Roids, very true!


#4

Saw that too but what do you think he squats? He's a freaking huge ass light bulb.


#5

My friend is a trainer at his gym. I'll ask him and see if he knows. Sr. was swimming in one episode but I don't remember if his legs were big or not. His upper body is gigantic though.


#6

Wow that very impressive. I must have missed that episode. Was it on recently??


#7

HHH, last night.


#8

His form was really shitty, his came about 4-5 inches off the bench. He is still pretty strong for an old fart!


#9

His grip was also inside shouder width apart. Almost a close grip 405 bench press for that old fart!


#10

yeah i saw it too. the kicker is that he already trained tricpes first and did a handfull of sets on the bench with about 315. then he just handled 405 with ease. that was pretty impressive!


#11

No getting around it, that is one big mofo... Hard living transferring into hard lifting. Maybe his influence will turn Mikey around.


#12

I bet he is on atleast a .75gram of test a week.


#13

i missed the show,and often wondered
if he lifts and big as he is i thought
he did and damnnnn 405 lbs pretty
impressive for a guy in his 50's and a
big guy as well have to catch the repeat
i think sat night!!


#14

He's just a big fucking man. There aint no roids in that body mdog.


#15

It's also indicative of how one can change their lifestyle. Sr. is in AA. I suspect he may have done some pretty heavy drugs at one time or another also.


#16

Yeah, but what's his squat an dead?


#17

Who cares what his squat and dead are. He's a 55+ recovered alcoholic and can press 400+ with ease.


#18

im calling photoshop!


#19

I echo bartonmlee's thoughts. I always watch and think,"he's big and he's got big arms. I wonder what he does for lifting. As for the roids, who knows if he uses, but look at his kids on the show. It looks like the big-boned gene runs in the family.

P DOG it would be calling "After Effects" not "Photoshop" for video!
