    Andy Bolton Pulls big raw

    For those who don't know yet we had the BPC Push Pull yesterday and Andy Bolton hit an impressive 432.5kg (953ish) in a belt. Looked good especially as he's only just back into training recently after injury.

    Awesome number, the fact that this is after injury and raw (almost) is just berserk

    If you wear a belt it's raw, not RAW!!!!!! I'm going to go shoot myself in the face now.

    953? That's just silly. Love watching him deadlift.

    Competition always fuels the fire...best thing to happen to Andy has been all the talk about KK recently. Look for these two to put up big numbers in the next year.

    Monster lift, and I agree it looks like he had way more in the tank.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Well I'd define Raw as being without the belt. Not trying to take anything away from the pull whatsoever, moving heavy weight is moving heavy weight. Next time I'll say "unsuited"

    Yeah, that was speed weight. Imagine what would happen in Bolton and KK lifted in the same gym. That competetion would be insane!

    looked very easy, i really think the effect of DL suits in the conventional deadlift is way smaller then most people think. I wouldn't be surprised to see andy pull 970 or more raw. Not to mention when andy misses a lift it looks to often be a grip issue which is going to be a little less of a problem raw.

    Personally its not raw to me unless the lifter is naked, i mean, how much do you think hes getting out of his singlet straps???

    It looked just as easy in the flesh.

    It was also pretty hard conditions too - we were cramped in a little space to warm up and we've had record heat here in UK yesterday added o the thousands of people there and bright lights it was tough for hydration.

    Andy certainly is the force to be reckoned with in the deadlift. People far underestimate his raw ability when comparing him to 900 lbs pullers.

    Best bet is to just say "Not to the tomv standards of raw" because every federation that has a raw class includes a belt as raw.

    I suppose it has to do with something about avoiding abdominal hernias, or possibly just to keep his singlet up.

    You're right though, he's pretty piss poor weak with that "gear whore" pull of his

    To be fair, KK's was beltless. But Bolton's did look a lot easier.

    I tend to go by who pulls more weight.

    I believe KK has said in some articles that he does not like pulling in a belt in meets? Something about effecting his breathing or something.

    I may be imagining that, however KK could have used a belt if he chose to. IMO, the two are equal in levels of rawness.

    I think I recall him saying he doesn't get much out of his belt, though I don't remember anything about the breathing. But yes, he could have used one if he chose to and they are both monsters either way.
