    Just came across this video... the stack he lifts is fucking unbelievable. Can anyone give me an estimate on the weight? Most of the time when I see these top bodybuilders lifting I am clueless as to the weight. I can spot a 45 or 70 lb. plate but the stacks these guys lift are just brutal.


    *edit* Sigh... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSNvEpH2L1o

    Just found that. 2300 lb. leg press. Shit like that makes my stomach hurt just watching. How is it possible that people are pressing thousands of pounds now? Some of these guys are strict-body builders but they are lifting more than professional strongmen.

    I think it's right around 800

    8 45's per side, plus a 10 and a 5 and a 2.5 i think, plus the bar.

    Nice, thanks. I thought I remember hearing of some strongmen squatting over 1000 but it sounded impossible to me.

    Mike Miller quarter squatted 1220 :p

    You guys should watch the whole Cost of Redemption vid. He does a shitload of reps on the squats before the 800 attempts with some heavy ass weights too.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    I'm pretty sure he knows it too. He's a huge guy and a badass lifter but come on.

    that's a quarter squat?

    he looks to be about 2" shy.. but you cant even tell from a front view.
