Huge Dude, Big Vert

Recently there was a pic on this site of an enormous olympic lifter leaping sky high. Can somebody get my that link?

Was it Mark Henry? Huge black guy?

Shane Hammon?

Joe’s got a bunch of cool pics up there, including Shane and some other heavies jumping pretty high (may be what you’re thinking of).

Damn, you had to post that pic of a dislocation, a?

That was the main reason why I avoided that site when I was oly lifting…

It still gives me creeps.

I think he may be talking about the recent Dave Tate picture… not sure.

I’ve seen Mark Henry dunk an Iranian college student during a pickup game at an apartment complex. He had to be weighing close to 400 at the time. That was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever witnessed in person.

I got some cool pics. & a video of the late, great Stefan Fernholm. He was a discus thrower & his vert was amazing. He was 6’1’’ 265-270 with a 4.3 40 yd. as well.

Yeah, and his kid is O-lifting now and is ridiculous.

Dunk him through the net or like under water. I know Iranians are small but damn he’s strong!

The late Craig “Ironhead” Heyward was able to do a 360 slam dunk at 6’1" 260 (that was his listed weight but he was closer to 300). His son apparently got the old man’s genes and is a highly rated 6’6" 260 lb DE/DT recruit out of Georgia right now.
