"F—k you and the Prowler you rode in on"
OK I just watched this video for the first time. Impressive strength. I know I compete mainly in the bench but I am going to point out a few things I noticed since I have been in the sport for @ 15 years I think I am qualified. First off 675 is no joke exspecially with just knee wraps and a belt. Squating out of a cage pulling pins is great if you don't have a mono lift. However in thsi video safety is a major issue. Get side spotters with that much weight things can go south real quick. Your a young kid with many years ahead of you in the gym. Don't ever disrespect the weight train safe and you will be in the game a lot longer injury free.
On to your training envirement. Definately a comercial gym. Your intesity is good! How ever with the coments the women in the back ground were making I can see you getting thrown out soon. So heres what you need to do. Next time they spout off when your getting jacked for a lift walk over to them smack em on the ass and tell them you are next. LOL!
Rob dont tell him to hit anyone, he is 16 he might do it because you said too! LOL
Great lifting but all jokes aside, Rob is right you have to do in with better spotting. Powerlifting is not a sprint, it is a marathon. The longer you can train without being injured the better your numbers will be. I like some of the guys travel 5 hours round trip each week to lift, if you have a local powerlifting gym take the bus there. I am sure that after training with the guys for a while someone will give you a ride (as long as you dont destroy anything).
I encourage you to compete also but remember that God and your family should come first. Alot of meets are 2-days and the 3-lift tends to be on sunday. You can also weigh in that morning since you will not have to cut to make your class. Contact
http://www.orlandobarbell.com/ Brian Schwab trains there and they may know of some meets that fit your schedule in your area!
Have fun and stay safe!
I dont have any spotters, and I cant trust anyone there to be honest. Asking them to spot me from the side is 100 times as dangerous as just asking to stay away from me.. I dont even ask them to spot me on bench, I have had kids jerk the weight off the rack and let the weight land right over top of my face. I have almost killed my self like that a few times.
Il try to train some compedant people to spot me.
As far as where I train, that was at school. And the coach is awesome, he will let me do more or less what ever I want in there. I go to a normal gym to tho, and they try to throw me out every other week for **** as simple as leaving weight on the bar...
Il be sure to slap anyone who gives me **** even Im training lol.
YOU CANT BUY STRENGTH
Just squated 700, walked out with knee wraps and a belt.
I probably have 725 because it was really fast and smooth.
Sorry no video, but I thought id say anyway.
YOU CANT BUY STRENGTH
You are a freak of nature... and I mean that as a compliment.
