90* just means you're halfway there to becoming a man!
Wow...just freakin WOW...
That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while.... he didn't use a mixed grip, which is strange to me but hell, it obviously works for him.. lol.

I don't know anything about straps or belts or any of that.

i saw that on PL watch and was amazed. the guy has an amazingly strong trunk.
about the straps, its still very impressive with the straps, but without them it would be even more impressive. i would think his grip strength must be quite good with all the lifting he does, but then again it is 815 for 3 reps.
He's cleaned and pressed the inch dumbbell - his grip is fine...
And it's just another day at the gym.
It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
what is he? STRONGMAN I ASSUME? dam caps... i personally love seeing strongman do the real DL cause it really puts things in perspective. u kinda get numb to what they are doin cause everyone else there is doin it and the weights arent really known most of the time. but ive recently seen mark felix do 881, kevin nee do 903, this guy do 815x3... all truly impressive

yeah, the guy is very well rounded. powerlifter, oly lifter, strongman, i think i even read something about him doing the highland games.
that would have been impressive even in a suit.

He is a strongman, not a powerlifter, so he will most likely not be judged on how he holds his deadlifts in training. Many strongmen use straps in training to prevent bicep tears and to really focus on all the other muscles, as well as to let the grip recover from regular grip training, farmers walks, etc.
Also, it's not like he's got a weak grip. I'm pretty sure he holds the world record on the axle (thick bar) clean and press, with a double overhand grip.
