on claiming to be able to do something, that he cannot do?
he doesnt sound like he has a clue what he is talking about thats why. 700-800+ in only 6 months???
on top of that hes only 19 years old. as far as im aware, andy bolton the greatest DLer in history was pulling around 900 at 19. if this guy is gonna pull 800+ at 19, that is pretty fucking rare to say the least. up there with the best of all time kinda rare.
a little perspective as well, the kid claims to be a strongman. derek poundstone, arguably the best strongman in the world DLs around 815 i think. misha koklaev around 900 or so. 800+ for a strongman is seriously seriously good. like best on the planet good.
obviously its not impossible, but it almost is.
Mega newb was also very tall and heavy and didn’t he pull like 700 at 16 y.o. or something equally crazy?
Yeah, his form/technique on most lifts wasn’t what most would accept, but he did pull huge weight off the floor…
It’s a lot easier to pull 700 than 800 or even 900 (obviously)…
That’s like the 600 lb (raw)bench. You get a suprising number of 500+ benchers, but VERY few manage a legitimate 600(+) in competition, and there’s only 2 I can think of who’ve benched 700 or more raw (Mendelson and Hoornstra… Though the latter didn’t do it in competition yet I think…).
With DL’s most good lifters seem to get stuck around 650-700+… The very good ones make it to 800(+)… Only the most gifted to 900+.
That being said, the OP’s training age of 2 years makes me wonder… But yeah, stranger things have happened and he hasn’t become hostile yet like most trolls seem to.
I think there is kind of an unspoken policy on here that if you claim to be lifting heavy shit you have to back it up. I think the cut-off is about 3/4/5. If you don’t have a video of it, or at least have posted something that makes us think you are capable of it, don’t bring it up.
