#1

I came across this video today:

Scroll down a little way and there is a vido of him dumbell pressing 200 lb. dumbells.

I figured with as much discussion as we have been having lately about the Mr. Olympia, people might appreciate this video.

Dude is strong! Light Weight!!

I thought the guy standing behind him cheering him on was about to pump him in the ass.

OFF TOPIC
One day , I was getting ready to deadlift. It was my last set. I noticed that a guy was behind me , similar to the guy in the deadlift video.
As I was about to complete the fifth rep , I got stuck about 4/5 of the top. The guy behind me ran up to me as fast as possible.
At the time I had no idea what this guy was trying to do.When I saw him run towards me ,it gave me a quick jolt of energy.
I finished the pull and extented my lower back.As I extented my lower back , I kind of head butted him.The head butt wasnt that hard ,however it knocked him backwards and he kind of fell on his ass.
After helping him up , i asked what he was doing?
He was about to give me a spot on deadlifts.

ROFL!!!

All joking aside, his lifts are very impressive.

After the dumbell bench presses, he just threw the weights down like they were nothing. I have never seen anyone handle weights with such ease.

I never would have imagined someone his size with such a high pitched voice.


#11

I think Ronnie's physique is nasty, but you can't doubt his strength. I'll take the piss out of him for his GH-gut, but I would never trash him for being one of the strongest dudes around.

I think my brain shutdown as soon as I heard him speak. What a big guy for such a small voice... Those lifts were very impressive though.
