    I agree. Relatively large ROM and seemed to press it pretty easily. Wow...

    You know what, I think you are right Paul. Scott had hit a 661 raw, so I believe he did the 700 lbs raw. Now, for all of the b.s. on the net, that is a friggin awesome lift. He hit that no problem.

    That's nothing.

    I've hit up 2 plates a side raw for several reps.

    Now that's something...

    Yeah, we're a dying breed. They just don't make us like they used to.

    Umm, I might sound like an idiot, but if he was really doing it raw, wouldn't his grip be more narrow? and i think he was wearing a bench shirt, it looks like he is to me but then again im not too experienced.

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    well yes that is true, but shirted lifters tend to keep a wider grip because the shirt helps them more that wya.
