Well, I figured this forum needed a Michael Phelps thread as all the others forums seem to want to know what he eats, discuss his ripped physique and argue about if he wears ribbed or magnums.

I heard he wears a Titan F6 and has hit a gym best of 885... he then went and swam for 6 hours and ate 17,000 kcals afterwords

But the guys over at bb.com say such a bench wouldn't be impressive as he was geared

The most ironic thing is that the one place that it would actually fit,(assuming we were discussing the benefits of swim training) the GPP forum, there is no "Michael Phelps" thread!

:eek:

Well, I didn't read anything other than the title. So I assumed it was a serious question. I just read the actual post so I can now see it wasn't a serious question.

Michael Phelps is just happy that Rob Luyando doesn't swim!

LOL, no harm no foul. With the exception of you and "willie" we all know each other IRL, so it was a personal joke taken out on the unsuspecting masses of WBB.

edit, and ryano.... sneaky bastard!

Well, I'm sure if he could figure out the groove w. a tri-ply Rage, he'd bench a grand. His squat and deadlift would need to catch up, but w. some Metal gear and a monolift, I'm pretty sure he'd total 3000.

Wonder how his arch is...

It's enough so he doesn't even have to unrack. He just blows his belly up and presses it on the bar.

Phelps is America's golden boy so he would NEVER use cheater gear.

can everyone please get their ****'s out of his ***. he is a swimmer, he does different workouts, he isn't ripped at all. swimming is technique as well as strength, and unless you are a swimmer you probably shouldn't base your workouts on what Michael Phelps does.

Wow - too much coffee this morning. If you hadn't noticed this particular thread was satire of the other crap threads regarding Phelp's diet found elsewhere on WBB.

Why make fun of Phelps? He's an amazing athlete, one of the best in history. Just because he doesn't lift a ton doesn't mean he's less of a man than you all. Someone was impressed by his physique and you guys ripped on him. You guys jealous?

No we're commenting on the level of hero worship taking place on this board, coupled with the fact that 4 threads regarding his diet / physique have been started (not including this one)

Again and as many of us has said, we/I respect everything he's done athletically. I do think he's a truly amazing athlete, but the amount of press his 12,000 kcal diet is getting is a bit absurd

The dudes is bada$$ no question and I was rooting for him last night to get number 8, we are not making fun of him but making fun of all the nut swinging that is going on.

Michael Phelps obviously has a lot to learn from the powerlifting world. If he had competed in a flaming skull cap, I'm pretty sure he would have broken 8 world records rather than 7.

( kind of bored this afternoon, otherwise I wouldn't give this a second thought, but ... )

Lets see, he's 6'4", weighs 165 and has a 6' 10" wingspan. He's definitely not build for benching. I bet he can't even bench 225.
