Must See Lifting Video

Speechless.

What got me about the first was his trying to rationalize it after practically making it a one-armed hang-clean. “Really, that was a good lift…think about it. I resisted it. Anyone buying this?” Please.

The second I refuse to comment on.

Kitty says it for me

That kid’s going to injure himself long before he builds enough muscle to actually stand out without video footage. He’ll be wishing he hadn’t “cheat curled 140lbs” before he turns 25.

That’s what I thought. My brother went to try it for a laugh straight after seeing the video and I stopped him because I could see it was just ridiculously dangerous. Surely 140lb would even be quite a lot for you?

Here’s a decent rule to live by: If you have to use wrist straps in order to hang onto the dumbbell you’re intending to bicep curl… you’re trying to curl too much weight.

ftw

lmao@ people using straps for curls, wow.

I love how he mentioned that he used a little bit of a swing. That looked like a dumbbell hang clean to me. He has a hernia brewing within him.

Did any of you check out some of ‘powabuilda’s’ other videos? The 185 lb preacher curls? His 21s?

This kid is an injury waiting to happen.

Prototypical douche bag.

You know his friends thing he’s the shiznit, so he’s got that going for him - which is nice.

lol, hey least he didn’t drop the weight :smiley:

EXTREME PREACHER CURLS

haha

Unbelievable. I wonder where he got the idea that lifting like that was acceptable.

fail.

I don’t think he even used his bicep in that video…

The guy made me think of my nephew. Last year, he was wanting to get buff for high school and was using my weights in the basement. I left a curling bar loaded to 100 lbs and i caught him getting ready to try and lift it.

i told him that he isn’t strong enough to do it just yet. he gave me a little attitude, but didnt lift it at least.

i tried to work with him, but didnt listen, he would whine that he couldnt’ do a pushup, but would get pissed if you tried to tell/show him how and he’d quit, then go to his room.

then one day i caught him doing extreme cheat curls with that 100lbs and he was putting so much back into it, and his buddy was helping him get it all the way up. he still couldn’t curl it. i yelled at him for a while and then he and his friend left. the next day, he went to the emergency room and turned out he got a hernia.

that 16 year old “curling” that dumbbell is going to really fuck himself up someday, that is an unfortunate way of learning the hard way.

i also remember this guy at my gym that was his age a few years back and he would load the leg press to over 1200lbs and just move them in a partial, calf raise kind of movement. he would celebrate with his buddy about how strong he is.

one day, i finally asked if he was doing a calf raise or leg press, he said leg press. and i told him that he coudln’t handle that much weight if he did it properly. he just laughed and said i was jealous.

I invited him to do some squats and deadlifts with me, but he wouldn’t go for it. i guess some people want to learn the hard way.

Just imagine what this guy could 16th squat!
