Can't wait for this first person to come in this thread and mock him for using straps haha...

He's powerful as all hell. Absolutely ridiculous.

He did it in under a minute too. Less than 2 seconds per rep. That is nuts.

Damn, that was impressive. Doubt I could match that with 135.

One of my friends also competed, he actually won the Bro's VS Pro's deadlift challenge the last time and this time around pulled 765 lbs @ 240 lbs (Frank Domingoes). I am not really sure that Derek qualifies as a "Bro", but it is good to see a strongman take home the win.

I'm assuming that he competed as a bro then? either way he is my favorite strength athlete or actually any athlete for that matter. I seen in marunde he posted he was gonna try to make this event and I figured he could take it all..this guy is such a beast

They allow straps for the comp so Derek was just taking advantage of it. Dave Palumbo invited and worked on getting Derek to come as a draw for the event and so that people would post threads like this around the net.

I LOVE the idea of that competition and want to do something like that for WBB. I would love to hear thoughts?

Ummmm let me think for a second.... Hell yes! I think the community here would have a lot of fun with that.

I never heard of such events. Is this suppose to be some friendly competition? is it an annual event?
