That lift is the culmination of every session in the last 4 years, that number has been my goal since I realised this is what I wanted to do. I doubted I'd ever lift it at times, now it feels like a stepping stone.
I also now have the same raw squat as raw deadlift. Imbalances FTW!
I'm sickly jealous and very proud. I still remember you as the *generic insulting term* squatting 160kg in cons in TF. Well done!!
Animal lifting man... quarter tonne is a big milestone! Beast!
I have a side question out of curiosity. Does anyone powerlift that doesn't listen to heavy metal? It seems to be a requirement. Hedley listening to 5ive aside.
Fair play, great squatting!
That's also a pretty ****ing intense video. Your yelp is right on cue with the music breaking down to the guitar riff
A lot of the time I listen to Off the ball on newstalk but for heavy sets I tend to go with some kind of heavy music but it doesn't have to be metal. Nothing sucks the intensity out of the air like a **** song.
I don't actually like getting too hyped up before a set, unless its a big PR attempt I won't bother. You can over train that too and then it becomes hard to get a bit of a boost for the big lifts.
Great effort on that lift Kev.
The maniacal laugh was my favourite part!
Absolute animal lifting! well done! Yeah I loved the laugh, very evil-villain-esque!
Awesome stuff Kev
With that laugh, I think you could be a villian in the next Batman movie - Power-Man
BTW the 220 x 4 x 3 was fcuking unreal...
Laughing uses up quite a lot of oxygen apparently. I actually nearly blacked out after it. Would have been epic if I did actually.
Have you decided what meet your 'comeback' is going to be?
Seems like there'll be a few of us doing the IPO's.
