I'm just going to come out and say it. I think most of the stuff on his website is bull****. I may be wrong, but that's how I see it.


His Highland Games PRs aren't very impressive, as far as Highland Games Activities go.

to eaches own, but seems to me the man has the knowledge and experience to do those lifts. i doubt theres many people on this planet that can go 1,000 lbs from a dead stop parallel with just a belt.

Some of his lifts seem very impressive and some seem not so impressive. No where close to the strongest man in the world. I'd like to see how he would fare in a full lifting meet with judges watching him.

What really gets to me is his deadlift. 705x1 isn't all that special in the elite powerlifting world. Don't get me wrong, it's still an incredible feat of strength, but not out of the ordinary. Plus, who cares about a 3/4 deadlift or a 1/3 deadlift? If it's not full ROM then it's not a deadlift.

Hah hah.

How come he started with it down. At one point during the video is dipped (kind of) and came back up. It looked like a seizure almost. Hah. But, amazing nontheless.

Most people couldnt support 1000 pounds with their back, let alone squat it. This man is among the strongest, and must know a thing or two.

I mean common, squatting 1000 off a rack would be easier then starting at the bottom of the rep. Atleast I think so... you get zero rebound so you have NO momentum comming off the bottom of the lift.

His 1000lb bottom up squat is almost a back lift. It's not really comparable to a PL squat.

He's like a classic strongman of old, doing feats of strength that often seem more impressive than they really are. There is no doubt that he is very strong, but he needs to compete and win to be able to claim world class status.

WBBIRL

I think you being able to even budge with 1000 pounds of iron on your back would give you that.

Stumprrp
09-11-2006, 02:28 PM
some of these comments are really rediculous LOL a back lift?? its a rack squat starting from the bottom like any other rack squat, HE ONLY HAS A BELT ON!!

as for a 705 deadlift, thats probley only a belt also, as for his other lifts with no shirts/suits, think outside the box people, theres more then just bench squat and deadlift.

The numbers just dont add up. My max dead is 600x1 with "only a belt" and I'm no where near elite. I know that's just one statistic, but if he can truely squat 1000+ pounds with a belt, then should sure as hell be able to deadlift more than 700.

I think the guy is full of **** personally. I'd like to see him in a legitimate powerlifting federation meet.

I'm not denying he is strong, but some of his lifts are quite suspicious.

Stumprrp
09-11-2006, 03:21 PM
i understand your reasons Justin, i ordered his dvd on partial training and they show him doing some sick lifts such as a 1800 quarter squat, 1,000 partial deadlifts, 1000 lb partial zercher, and some other full lifts i cant remember, i will let you all know when i watch it

thats a good effort on the positive squat, but his numbers are seriously not even close to being the strongest dude on the planet - you should check out what the top strongman competitors are actually lifting

Stumprrp
09-11-2006, 03:35 PM
see i understand this, my point is his variety of lifts, conditioning, and martials arts all put together makes me think this. i said he is one of them, not THE strongest.

Chubrock
09-11-2006, 05:02 PM
Actually Stump, you said he could be THE strongest man.

Stumprrp
09-11-2006, 05:08 PM
exactly, COULD, jesus you guys are getting me really pissed off lol, why do you all have to point out each induvidual word lol, he could be the strongest man in the world CONSIDERING he lifts raw the the VARIETY of his lifts.

Guido

He's strong, but his only truly world class lift, drug-free or not, is that squat. His other lifts are good but probably not even top 10 worthy.

The only difference between back then and NOW is that NOW you have a competition called the "World's Strongest Man" and it's sponsored by Met-Rx.

He should enter it and see what he can do against other guys wanting that title themselves. :thumbup:

His Highland Games PRs aren't very impressive, as far as Highland Games Activities go.It's been a long time since I've read much there, but I remember most of his stuff being pretty straightforward and spot on... I'm just curious what you found that was such BS - could you elaborate?

Chubrock
09-12-2006, 03:09 PM
To be perfectly honest, I was referring more to the stuff he has put up about his son. Obviously he was bragging but still, I don't believe for a second that his kid who weighed less than 100lbs could partial DL well over 300lbs. I also don't believe his personal quarter squat numbers. Like I said though, I don't know much about strongman lifts or capabilities, but I DO know that his Highland Games numbers are far from being close to world class.

Chubrock
09-12-2006, 03:13 PM
I just went back and looked again. I also don't believe his Windmill numbers. To ME, his numbers, at least pressing strength, don't seem strong enough to support an almost 200lbs Windmill. Saying that, his definition of a true windmill may be different than mine, I don't know.

Stumprrp

chub - i will tell you if his partial numbers are true when i get the dvd

dvd was pretty cool, he talks ALOT but i guess its informitive info, he does do a 1,000lb partial zercher and front squat but i only watched about half the dvd, watching him get physced up is hilarious tho he looks like hes on speed and sounds like a raging boar lol.

01-12-2007, 01:21 PM
yes im bumping this because bottom up is harder

some guys on other forums made stupid remarks like if he tryed to do 1000 from a standup he would be buried..

...i think not with a 1800 quarter squat.

partial lifts are very effective and obviously worked for him, some people specilize in certian things and his is squat, guess what, hes one of the best squatters on the planet.

Stump,
It's harder when you don't prioritize it in your training. The numbers will even themselves out after you've been training it for a while.

I agree with you - he's a world class squatter, no doubt about it. I don't understand all the crap people are posting about him here. He is a strong SOB. Is he the world's strongest man? No. Is he the world's strongest PLer? No. Is he one of the world's strongest men? Hell, yes.

Very strong squatter and very strong guy, no where near the strongest in the world though.

WBBIRL
01-12-2007, 04:24 PM
The problem is that being a world class strength athlete requires freak strength overall.

Even being able to have 1800 pounds on your back speaks TONS of what kind of strength you have. Don't believe me? Try it... 600 feels like a house so takeing that times 3 is just freaking ridiculous.

Partials have their place in training.

KevinStarke
01-12-2007, 04:27 PM
Has anyone actually seen him hold 1800 on his back? I'm not calling him a liar I just dont see how anyone could support that kind of weight on their back.

Stumprrp
01-12-2007, 04:35 PM
Yeah, he does it in the DVD i have of him, and he does it with only a belt.

my original remark was farfetched, i was just excited from the video. but i do believe he is like the new age paul anderson when it comes to squatting, i dont think anyone can top that 1000 from the bottom with just a belt.

i was doing 315 from a full position raw and god it was hard.

KevinStarke
01-12-2007, 04:57 PM
Thats definitelly nuts, takes some serious strength to support that kind of weight. I would think his dead would be bigger than 705 with that kind of back/leg strength.

Stump.. he is indeed VERY strong.. I wish I had his strength..
But I agree with Chub, to be on of the Strongest man, you have to compete against them.. if he had some PL or Stongman or Highland championships, that would be different..

I don't think you should compare him to Paul Anderson either... Yes Paul did some oddball lifts.. but he was a champion OL and PL first. He did his 1000 lb squats for reps, atf style.

And I believe that if Mike Miller, Marc Henry, Chuck Vogelpohl, or probably even Kaz still.. trained for this lift and stood there next to Bud, they could easily keep up with him.

But dang.. I still wish I could do it...

Obvious he's super strong. The lift does almost turn into a goodmorning or back lift. Still impressive, he almost loses it. If you watch the video though, my own little bitty opinion.
He looks to be comfortable underneath the bar at about parallel. Though watch the bar doesn't move right away and he is up some before ever engaging the bar. Looks, not quite but close to more of a lockout.
Theres quite a few guys that are real strong in certain lifts. You never see them winning in strongman or PL (big events) because there only super strong at certain lifts and leverages.
You tube Robert Wilkenson, does high box w/ 825 and he's a young guy.
Another impressive squat guy is John Bernor (sp)

His full range DL is low because of his huge gut, which is a common prob. for the guys with a bigger gut. Just look at Jeff Lewis, squats 1200, but I think only pulls around 800. His back and spinal erectors must be like cables to do partials with over 1000. My DL goes up when I lose weight, and I only weigh 245 at my most, so the trunk is the reason for the lopside DL #'s. He's strong, but seems like kind of a knob, one who is one quintuple cheeseburger away from a heart-a-stroke.

actually fitz, this is what i thought also, but if you look around his site he is actually quite the athlete, lots of martial arts and other stuff that requires you to be in pretty good shape.
