Hi guys. New to the forum, been reading for about a year now but figured join in on the fun. Been a gym rat for years, mostly for looks, but getting more involved in power recently (at 35 kind of a late start, but what the hell). Like any newbie I am pouring through books, magazines and videos and also have the benefit of a good friend/coach into powerlifting for years.
Quick question. What’s the deal with Yuri Spinov?? Seems like he was an ipf champ in mid nineties but you still hear so much about him on the web especially as it relates to squatting, deadlifting and doing good mornings with obscene poundages minus a belt. With so many amazing lifters with bigger numbers around, why still so much mention? Is it the no belt factor?
Certainly not meaning to degrade the guy’s accomplishments as he will be 10x stronger than I ever will, but was curious why he seems so revered and often brought up aside from obviously being a total monster. Thx for any info and a great site/forum.
