I guess I'll have to wait until I can rep close to 700lbs for 6 reps..

I've seen guys nose bleed while DL'ing..

Wow. If that doesn't inspire you I don't know what will.

I started lifting at one of the 2 gyms he goes to. I haven't seen him in there yet but there are pictures of him breaking records everywhere...including one of him squatting right in front of the squat rack. It reminds me of what a pussy I am and tells me not to punk out when I squat. The guy is a total inspiration.

Makes it look quite simple. He seems to lean forward a bit, is that about how much most of you do?

Ed is a great lifter and a really cool guy. If you get the chance to approach him, do so.

I'm jealous of EC for having the privilege of getting to squat where the great Ed Coan has squatted. One day I will visit EC's gym and we will meet Ed. One day...

When do you make it over to the Cal City Quads? I will be lifting with him tomorrow around 4:30, come over and introduce yourself if you can make it in!

He is a machine. Every rep looks exactly the same....depth, form, speed. He's nasty.

My training partner John Bernor is another one of the best squatters in the world and I was in the gym(Iron Island) when he did 720x5 with no belt. That was a sick sight, but even so it was at a much heavier bodyweight than Coan. I guess that's why Bernor always brings him up when we are arguing between wide box squats and narrow pause squats. :P

Ed Coan cannot be called the man, for that's too demeaning. Pure excellence comes more to mind.
