I saw video of the lift. Very clean and very strong. That big bastard lifted at the IPA push/pull I did in Penn and he is a monster. He moved 810 that day very fast.

Gene or Scott: "Hello 900lbs how u doin?"

Hey Latman. You said that you saw a video of the lift. Where did you see it? I would really like to see this myself. 885! That is truly incredible!
