Been waiting for this one...Glad to see Eric finally take the record...and by a serious margin to boot.
Super strong, but he was about half way up when given the press command... I saw a video of Bell's not locked-out pull as well. A meet is a meet, and Spoto got the lift, but unless the judging gets a little tighter people are going to lose respect for lifts done at those ST meets (at least some of the lifts).
And NO, I am NOT a Spoto hater. I think the man is an amazing presser. I just think all-time records should have reasonably strict judging.
Here's the link to the vid off of powerlifting watch. I'm pretty sure that it is the same lift, and you get a better view of the pause and the head ref giving the press command. Really shows how much lag there are in some video clips between the vid stream and the audio:
Weakest person on the forum, and my bench is higher than my squat.
My training journal:
thecityalive is dead meat
Current RAW PRs:
Dead: 535 (1/12/15)
Squat: 455 (1/8/15)
Total: 1245 lbs.
When there is THAT much weight on the bar, i really hate seeing records broken by 1lb. I was also expecting some soft handoff and lockout. But DAMN. That was about as legit as an all-time world record is going to get. I consider myself a pretty strong guy all things considered... and i wish i could deadlift that... 722lbs.
The king is dead! All hail the king!
Jesus Christ that was awesome!
Side note, how sad is it that I felt like that guy when I benched yesterday, and I only moved 315!!!
How about this...
Spoto's 722lb bench was only 43lbs less than my starting total... . . .
The bench was awesome.. but at the same time Stan Efferding side spotting... that was equally awesome. think about it. How often are you at meets where all time world record holders are working the platform?
Finally ELITE @ SHW..
Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.
The next stop: PRO total.
HOO's Gym: building the strongest gym in the South, one plate at a time.
I couldn't even have helped spot!
Thanks to Vincent's FB post, I saw it live...just mind boggling.
Saw him speed bench 700 at the Cage at the Arnold. His forearms are just horrifying.
I love how this guy's intensity is so internal. He looks so calm when he lifts, does what he intends to do, and immediately thanks his his training partner.
If I were him, I'd totally would request oversized checks everytime I get cash like in Happy Gilmore haha
Trample the weak, hurdle the dead
Satisfaction is the Death of Desire...
