    ****ing great job dude!
    Looks scary, did your school actually allow you to do it, or do they not know.
    Great form considering it was a tandem!

    wow, I wasn't expecting this kind of reaction, but thanks everyone. Me and my friend could only do that much weight because it was all that could fit on the bar. Hopefully if we go to Junior Nationals we'll be able to use the competition OLY weights there and fit well over 500lbs. So stay tuned...

    o yea I forgot to mention, you can't tell too well in the video, but me and my friend actually bent the bar when we dropped it, now we owe my coaches another 200$ bar (relatively cheap but it still sucks).

    something just doesn't sound right when it says "2 man clean and jerk" in the vid, lol

    but still thats pretty crazy, i never really though about doing that with another person, if you weren't in sinc that could go horribly wrong, but still props to ya, pretty impressive
