We were just working our way up and I decided to give it a go. Actually, when the bar was loaded I thought it was 635 lbs but I realized before I did the lift that the collars were 10 lbs in total. We used the collars from the Kings of the Bench meet from the night before.

Thank you all for the compliments!

wow sick job, OVERHAND GRIP, GOOD LORD!!

It is a hook grip which is stronger than a regular overhand. Thanks! Your supporting 600 lbs on your shoulders in the front squat is more impressive to me.

10-21-2006, 09:42 AM
chris, you could eat me and spit me out for breakfast, lol, my 1/3 front squat isnt crap!

10-21-2006, 09:53 AM
I hate people that are stronger than me. I guess that's why I hate the whole damn world.

Nice lift, Mason. I can hardly to half that.

Great job Chris..
I like those shorts.. I think I'd split those if I deadlifted or squatted in them...
And I have a hole in my tongue from biting it once while sticking it out like that.. lol

No, they hurt worse today beacuse I did 625 lbs for a paused double in the gym yesterday. That HURT!

Great job. Insane hand/leg strength. Much props.
