1,003 pound deadlift. wow. i've been reading up on this dude and watching videos, and he pretty much amazes me.
his split looks like this
Monday- Bench, shoulders, tri's
Wednesday- Squats, deadlifts (the deadlifts are more like rack pulls, he does them elevated with boards)
Thursday- Legs, upper back, traps
this split is kind of weird, not really what i expected. why does he do squats wednesday then legs thursday? i guess its just what suits him, and it sure as hell works.
seems a bt strange - where did you get this from?
that and i was reading the newest flex at wal mart the other day, and it had the same stuff in it.
A big lifter doing cardio 3 times a week seems odd. Anyways where are the videos?
If it was in flex chances are its crap. Cool flex is covering more strongman and powerlifters though.

Deadlifts bring people together. It's a fact. - Chris Rodgers
I wonder if by "cardio" he means HIIT or GPP stuff. Even so, not what I'd expect from an elite level powerlifter. Generally, doing much cardio would be a hindrence in making muscular/strength gains.
BTW, Pacman, your avatar is hilarious!
Andy posts on one of the British powerlifting boards. I'm sure he'd be willing to answer any questions.
Be a man. Be awesome at it. Be proud of it. Beyond the Barbell
"Borris is correct. That sounds logical if you ask me."
No that's really his routine. He also does a lot of plyometrics.
1003lbs deadlift WITHOUT wrist straps or gloves, now were talking.
thats my point
Don't believe what you read in FLEX. Light cardio will actually help the recovery process. No matter what his training split is, he's a strong dude. I think he squatted 1211, benched 631, and DLed 931 at the Arnold.
I did Cardio, lost 80 pounds and added 25 pounds to my bench So yeah if incorporated right Cardio can help
That site lists his workout like this:
Monday: Bench press and relevant assistance work (board presses, etc). Shoulder work, which will include some pressing up to around 8 weeks out, then heavy front and side raises. Assorted triceps work, with pressdowns forming the base.
Wednesday: Squat and deadlift, with both lifts being trained within the set percentage parameters required by each particular mesocycle. After deadlifts, very heavy leg presses and leg curls are performed for 6 sets of 8-10 reps. Heavy abdominal work concludes the workout.
Friday: This is reserved for upper back assistance work and will involve two forms of rowing, followed by one form of pulldowns. Heavy shrugs will be performed for six sets and some biceps work will wrap up the session.

consistency and intensity.
He trains me. Its similar.
Andy is the man... Mutant-like strength!
Hes also pulled 1008... Cant wait to see what he does next year @ his DL challage!
Just wondering if it was humanly possible to lift such loads clean.
Would he be stronger than guys like Charles Atlas, Louis Cyr, Alexander Zass etc having been around back in the day?.
