    seen this a couple times

    I think 2 of the most amazing things are the 260kg (570lbs) clean&jerk and the 7x700lbs double overhand grip dl's (with straps but still impressive)

    and I still cant get over that idiot who overhead presses 325lbs with his wife and kid behind him... :hsugh:

    I thought that guy at the beginning had a crazy vertical jump.

    And what is an "axle lift" and what are the rules? Seems like that one guy rested it on his chest while he repositioned his grip... :dunno:

    To press it overhead from the ground. The axle bar is super fat and hardly anyone can just clean it up to their chest as a result when there's 360+ pounds on there, due to grip failure. So they get creative with the clean movement.

    So the goal is press it overhead regardless of how you get it up there? That's awesome (having an end result as the goal rather than having proper form as the goal).

    Why? because I couldn't give a rat's shit how much someone benched in their $200 shirt, wraps, and squat suit; those things negate any kind of impressiveness achieved by an individual considering the leap in "performance" those items give. Show me what they can do raw, then talk about impressive.

    Here is another one:

    Because its funny when olympic lifters get superiority complexes and when weak people (such as yourself) take jabs at powerlifters.

    No it is sad; it is not about who is the strongest in PLing, depending on the league, it eventually comes down to who has the better squat, bench, dl, suit/shirt, negating who is actually the strongest.
