Some people just have to tell EVERYONE how much they bench press. Even when applying for an investment firm lol.

If you check out this guy’s resume, he actually lists that deadlift as an accomplishment. Looks like he should have included the names of both guys “spotting” him, as they actually performed the lift. What arrogant balls!

Did you see the traps on that guy?..his spotter that is

The bricks were so cracked before he struck them. What a douche.

I work for an executive recruiting firm that counts UBS as one of our clients.

I passed this resume around to all the guys in my office; we got a huge laugh out of this…what a tool.

You cant break bricks that are stacked directly on top of each other. You need a space inbetween each.

Thanks for that. I looked this guy up -this story is huge. If you looked at his resume - the non-profit organization, the company, the book - they were all fraudulent/plagarized. Apparently at school he claimed to know the dalai lama and that he killed 24 men in the caves of tibet with his bare hands.

Ahhh but you forget “impossible is nothing”

And those “spotters” as you call them weren’t for keeping this gentleman from being crushed like an ant, they were there to make sure the weight didn’t fly off and burst through the ceiling.

What a fucking douchebag charlatan. He’s perfect for a gig on Wall St.

Or Senate…

Impossible is nothing is meaningless.
I bet my wife could lift 495lbs with 3 spotters.

Nobody could bench 495lbs with 3 spotters.

By that I mean the bench could be empty.

I don’t know… I actually think it’s a tad clever. Execution was crap, but attaching a video to your resume - not a bad idea. Certainly makes you stand out.

And get called out…

Its clevar to make a video like that…if you can actually do the things you claimed you did in the video…

lol reminds me of a guy I know at the club. Each time he hits on a chick he tell them how much he bench presses.

“Hey bitch, I bench 400 lbs!”

come on man lol! They don’t care.

I am not through the whole thing yet, but the claimed 140 MPH serve is just hilarious. He looks like a mid-level recreational player who might have been the #2 player (at best) on his high school team.

…except that he’s a charlatan.

Very amusing website.
