Mariusz is tha Man!!!!!!!!!!!!! Polska Gooriam!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :evillaugh

This guy is unbelievably strong and well conditioned. But to be honest he didn't really have much competion this year and Im refering to the absence of Zydrunas Savickas and Vasyl Virastuykc(due to IFSA crap). In this new year I hope the IFSA allows there competitors to compete in MetRex world strongestman.

Canadian networks are beyond idiotic. They took up a slot yesterday during NFL Football showing the 2004 WSM (the one Virastyuk (spelling?) took), yet showed REPEATS of Junior Hockey today instead of the WSM. I don't get it, lol.

I watched the one from 1-2 P.M. I believe. The polish guy won his 3 title having that jesse guy come in thrid. The one who I liked the most though was the canidaian, boy was huge... like 6"6 400lbs and a monster of a man. The polish guy just had unbelievable strength and stamina.

i used to watch that show so much, but they showed like the 2000 until 2004, haha. the last 1 i watched there was a 6 foot 3 something pound maniac from canada.

those guys are all natural right? that would kinda defeat the purpose i would think

Of course! :nod: ;)

I won't turn this into one of "those" discussions, but it's a moot point. They are the genetic elite regardless of what sort of supplementation they choose to utilize.

Yea, you dont see that many people ever be that strong in all those areas. Some people may have a huge squat, or a big bench or a nice deadlift. But rarely does someone have all three. Whats better is the type of lifts they perform. The Atlas stones would be very very very hard, even if you were very strong. That ding carry would be insane, and no matter strength you would have to be pretty big to even have a chance at that... very long arms and insane back strength.

The average person would be damned lucky to get to 225lbs at under 15% BF, their are probably a slightly smaller group who could get to 250 at under 15% BF. Anything above that while staying natural is very very impressive. The pollish guy who just won his third title is over 300LBS at looks much under 10% BF.

I remember seeing a special on Mariusz Pudzianowski (spelling?), and in it he maxed his lat pulldown machine for 10-12 reps. I believe it was something insane like 320lbs!

The deadlifting and squatting were insane, Marius's squat was amazing and he basically RAN with the freaking ding. Best part to me was during the ding while everyone else dropped or threw the ding down marius literally bends down and places it on the ground.

Hmmm, the WSM Marathon broadcast was on ESPN Classic Canada that day. I recorded all 12 WSM finals they broadcast. Was that the channel you were watching? I'm in Toronto but the schedule may vary across the country.
