If those are all 20's...


#6

Inspiring pics, man.


#7

Totally awesome thanks for sharing.


#8

Thanks for these. The great thing about them, aside from being damn inspirational, is that many are very good photos, too, not the usual half-assed crap.
I am so hoping to make it up to Beijing for the lifting in two years.

aside from being able to lift that much weight...those dudes got some really impressive aesthetic physiques and anyone who says otherwise must die.

Glad you guys liked em. I didnt take them, someone posted about them on Sherdog (MMA Forum) and i thought some of you over here would enjoy them. It sure makes me want to learn the basics of the O-lifts.

Do you find that funny because he OH squats more than you back squat? Or is it because he OH squats more that you can TOTAL?


#14

That's awesome stuff.

Check out Olympic training forum on goheavy.com from time to time. The person who posted these pics (Dan H.) is a frequent poster there.

"Many Chinese lifters can overhead squat (from the bottom position) more than they can front squat."

Quoted for truth and bumped for relevance.

I posted this a lil while ago...shit like this makes me prefer o-lifting to powerlifting. Most of these guys also have a gymnast level of flexibility. It just seems so much more athletic.
