I’ll be taking a spin at the 181 world record squat in April hopefully depending how my recovery goes (herniated disc a month ago). I wouldn’t say I’m inspirational by any means though, just a decent squat. If you’re looking for someone really inspirational check out 2-scoops log on here. He’s beastly.[/quote]

*2 on 2-scoops he’s a really strong mofo. For the op, if you don’t know who he is here is a link to his log.

LM, how much is that you are going to make a run for? I haven’t seen many of your videos recently. Hope that injury heals quickly as well dude.

601 is current tested/no wraps record. 606 is current tested/with wraps. We’ll see how recovery is going and where I stand but I’d like to take a try at the tested/no wraps record (what I consider truly raw). Pre injury I had a solid 555 for a single and things were going great in my training. I might be a bit ambitious right now to think my training would have gotten me there as quick as April but I like to think I’m really starting to find what works for my body. If not April, then sometime in 2012. I haven’t been putting a lot of videos up my flip camera died on me about 4 months ago and I haven’t gotten around to buying a new one (apparently they’re not going to be made anymore?). Also going to try some actual lifting shoes out. Once my injury is up I get to use my SSB from EFS too! Of course it showed up on my doorstep the day after I herniated my disc and it’s just been sitting there staring at me begging to be used.

Damn dude, that’s got to be frustrating. Depending on how far back your injury put you, a 50-100lb jump is certainly feasible within 6 months. I’ll be following for sure.

770 bench at 161 i believe

(weight might be higher not too sure)

how much is that?

At least 716. I’m not sure what the black plates weigh though.

TOM MARTIN…

Damn, that’s impressive. How tall is he? looks pretty lanky.

5’10". I think he’s only been powerlifting for a year or two.

I don’t know about inspirational but I have had some good training lately and compete in the 200lb class in strongman. nationals is a month away…

I keep a training log on here

I’ll look through my links and find some other 200lb strongman stuff

Back when Tom Mutaffis was still 200lbs

this thread is pure awesome

Kalle, both your posts were awesome and inspirational. I really liked your stuff, power to ye mate!

Mutaffis is a beast… is he really drug free? Seems so incredible to me if he is.
