    Welcome Jack London and Mike Wolfe!!!

    Hi everyone,

    We're very excited to have both Jack London and Mike Wolfe as part of the AtLarge team and also actively participiating on the forums.

    Both are very nice guys and both have some very, very respectable accomplishments in the iron game!

    Jack was a national and collegiate powerlifting champion. With a 1000 lbs squat, 661 lb bench (no shirt) and a 700lb+ deadlift, Jack is obviously one very strong guy Not stopping there, Jack crossed over to bodybuilding, winning the NABBA North America and placed 3rd in the World Championships, now with his eye on the Night of the Champions in September. Right now he is 5'9 and 290lb's. Yes, you read right You can get more information on Jack at www.londonisburning.com!

    Mike is HUGE benchpresser. We are talking HUGE.... 830 pound bench. His short term aim is to join the 900lb club... Mike has a history of football, bodybuilding, oh and paintballing

    Here are some pictures of both. You can expect more detailed profiles and interviews with each on the AtLarge Nutriton website in the very near future.

    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    Both are wildly popular guys at shows. Wolfie is a little nuts and very outspoken, but strong as an ox and lives every day like his last.

    Jack "The Rhino" London- I have worked with him since he decided to jump to the PDI this year. I built his website and have worked with him on marketing and I gotta say, the guy is insane. He works all day as a financial manager, then trains and does appearances at night. Very smart guy too- really knocks out that stereotype that "all Bbers are meatheads". www.londonisburning.com is his intense, heavy metal website!

    I wish them both luck this year, and congrats on the At Large team- high quality people and products!

    Thank you everyone for the great welcome and response. I just want to say welcome to "Wolfy". I was in the cage with him when he was hitting those benches. Wow, the man is big-and strong..... and a good guy.

    To the rest, please feel free to utilize my experience and leverage my time in both sports. I don't always get to see all the threads, so feel free to pm me with anything specific, or with any threads to address.

    Again, thanks again for having me, it's great to among freinds!!!!

    Um, shameless plug for Rob. He is an excellent webmaster, and is tireless with his follow up. He is a major factor in my success and poularity.

    He is a freind, manager, and great webguy. I would highly recomend him!

    Definately a great opportunity to pick their brains!!
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Welcome to the site guys! Great to get some more powerlifters in here!


    So...first training question...will dumbell kickbacks help my deadlift?
    Deadlifts are like women, they'll hurt you everytime, but they'll also make you a man. - Me

    Friends don't let friends do dumbell kickbacks. - Me

    Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey:

    I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

    Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.
