    I'd love to see you static hold 700 pounds. If you can't, then I would keep my mouth shut if I were you.

    Very nice pulls. You made 725 look easy.
    Credulous at best
    Your desire to believe in
    Angels in the hearts of men.
    But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
    And give a listen
    Shouldn't have to say it all again

    I thought it was supposed to be right under your knee

    Yeah man, it's set fairly high, just above my knees. The idea with these were to use as much weight as possible.
    After handling that weight a 650 dead lift off the floor doesn't seem so imposing. Sometimes I set them lower. It's a give and take thing, the lower they are the less weight I can move.
    I'll tell you what though, pushing the hips forward with that much weight is not an easy thing. My glutes and hams were on fire.
    Thanks for the interest dude.

    Yeah, I'll do that variation in a few weeks or so. I'll probably do that with a sumo stance though because hitting the tops of the kneecaps is a beeotch.

    Yeah but that's why I had to lower the one without straps so quickly. I was going to loose it.

    It's better that you can't see me. Apparently the supports were set to high

    I wasnt saying it was to high or low my statement was more of a question. I read somewhere that the bar should be right below knees, I wasn't sure if you could put it above as well though. Which built has already stated you can.

    Oh and I forgot to put this in my last post awsome lift.
