x3 on the beast. I love his intensity, I can only get psyched up like that in my basement gym. You pull that stuff in my commercial gym, you'll get 2 or 3 people falling off a bosu ball and running for the door.

He's wearing straps. That makes a huge difference.

How so? Do you meen it's easier to pull for reps with straps, or more weight overall? I have no clue what it's like to lift 675, do some guys lose their grip before they're completely tanked?

Absolutely. Grip makes a massive difference. Straps make it much much easier

yes, particularly when you start getting into heavy weights, some guys's grip go out before their back does.

its easier to pull more weight with straps, and easier to pull more reps with straps. it makes you have one less thing to worry about, which is your grip.

Ahhh I completely didnt even realize he's wearing straps.

Either way, kroc is a machine haha.:ninja:

Grip is a huge contributing factor in deadlifting. A lot, not all, but a lot of great deadlifters have huge hands. I am much more impressed with Matt's 640x6 with no straps over the kid's 675x5 with straps.

We're talking about George Leeman, not Matt Kroc. Kroc isn't wearing straps.

Someone above made the comparison to Leeman's video and Vin was just clearing up that Leeman had straps on which made his lifts much easier

I agree straps make it much easier. I am taking nothing away from the kids 675x5, but please keep in mind he BOUNCED some reps, or at least touch and go. Kroc went from a deadstop strapless, as it should be. I would expect nothing less from a Marine! Kroc has pulled 800 officially, a great puller. Pulling reps in the DL is very hard. 640x6 is a good set.

Gotcha, that's what I thought.

Does anyone remember where I can find the video posted this summer of him and some friends working out in his garage one day? They were all bench pressing, and George Halbert was there. That's about all I remember, sorry. If anyone could clue me in, I'd appreciate it.

Look through his log and you'll find it I bet. It was sometime back in July. Rob, George, Bill Carpenter, Drex and a couple others were there
