Ok, so I don't want to sound like an ass or something but can someone explain something to me? If I saw this guy walking down the street I would think hey he's tall but he's never lifted a weight in his life, yet he can deadlift over 700lbs. I have no doubt that he will go on to break records, but how is it even possible to attain that level of strength with almost no hypertrophy?

He doesn't look that skinny to me. He also has a deadlifters body, and trains to maximize his strength at that bodyweight.

Strong dude for sure and is built to deadlift...I cringe when he overextends his back like that :omg:

When you think about the factors involved in great displays of strength it really comes down to four generalized factors; 1) Muscle cross-sectional area, 2) Nervous system factors (recruitment, CNS stimulation, etc...), 3) body segment leverages (short arms favor a BP, long arms favor a big DL, etc...), 4) Muscle/tendon insertion leverages. Out of all those factors only the muscle cross-sectional area (i.e. size) and some degree of the body segment leverages are visible at all. The other factors are not observable by the naked eye, so not everyone who is really strong looks really strong.
With that being said, I would contend that most people capable of a 675x2 DL would likely have more visible hypertrophy than the lifter above. I've observed that those who are very strong but don't look like it or don't carry alot of muscle mass are the exception and not the rule.

I dont know what is more amazing; the fact the guy can deadlift 700 without straps or the fact that he doesnt look like he could deadlift 350.

Hey guys, I am the small person in the video. I come by here about once a week to see any impressive powerlifting videos that I miss on other forums. I thought I would post my latest deadlift and share my enthusiasm.I use straps because grip is not my weak link so I don't wanna have to even think about it unless its a competition or I go hook grip for fun. I would be happy to answer any questions via PM or this thread, and Yes I was banned once from here years ago I hope we can overlook that I mean sometimes trolling is just fun.

why did you choose to post one of his older videos? LOL he's done 725 for a double since then with a hook grip, no straps.... he's very tall, so in his videos he looks a lot skinnier than what he actually is... in person he's pretty damn big for being 6'2 and under 230lbs ... an 800lb raw deadlift is definitely within his reach for this year.

725 for a double, 755 for a single

You are a deadlift prodigy, bro!

One off-topic question: Does rap really pump you up more than metal?

Keep killing it!

He obviously has good leverages for deadlift and also trains it really hard. What can you say really? Who cares what he looks like. A damn good deadlift is a damn good deadlift.

I second the notion that his height just makes him look skinnier than he is :). I bet if you were next to him in real life he would look massive.

Same type of thing happens to me all the time. In a pic by myself, I hardly even look like I lift weights. Put me next to a 5'9" person who looks jacked in a pic by themselves and I will make him look tiny by comparison. Not just height, but width/overall mass as well.
