    One of the names most people who arent in the sport haven't heard... but one of the best powerlifters of all time. Its sad watching these videos because he's gone now, but he was a great man. He didn't tip toe out of life, he went 100% out... his memorial issues of PLusa has a great write up of the man.

    Opening squat in just a belt and old school wraps over 700lbs, cracks at least two ribs. Goes on to raw bench 533 and pull 711. An amazing man.

    Not taking anything away from the man, but this kind of thing shows how much PLing has evolved in the last 10 years even.

    :bowdown: to this guy. He's a beast.

    Had a massive heart attack. One minute was there, eating a restaurant talking about the old days of PL, next minute he was gone. No expression on his face or anything
