I love it when people throw out ridiculous numbers and expect you to believe them

    I was at a clients site, and a sales mngr claimed a 800lb squat... 100% raw. Then he started bragging about his 21'' neck.

    Not saying 800 is undoable, but raw, by a non-famous lifter? Please. :rofl::rofl:

    I asked, power, olympic or box? briefs? belt? suit?... dude just stared at me like I was speaking a whole different language.

    People don't squat 800 not knowing these things.

    I hate it when somebody makes a claim and you know it's totally bogus. I have a friend who was telling me he benches 300+ (which was more than me at the time, this was a few years ago) yet you could tell just by looking at him that he couldn't hit 225. That aside it was on a machine, he showed me his form and he didn't go down nearly far enough, etc. Tons of things wrong but dammit, he benched more than me!
