    The gym at the ymca isn't built for deadlifting (weights are all steal, no mats, and warnings everywhere telling you not to drop weights).

    Yesterday, I saw this guy deadlifting but he wasn't going all the way down, he'd stop about 5-6 inches above the ground and go up again. I was hoping to try the same thing. Just wanted to know your guys' thoughts on this.

    I would too. You can almost feel the intensity from the vid not to mention that's your friend doing a 900lb DL.

    Shut the fuck up. You're a worthless piece of shit that's criticizes someone for celebrating for a 900+ deadlift. No wonder you actually ARE a school girl.

    I'm not sackriding. Chris is pretty fat. Accepted. At least he actually works out and trains hard. ANYONE can gain 50 pounds if they are injecting test and have test levels twice as high as an average male.

    yeah, 900 is an insanely high test level. call the HRT police

    Granted I may not be that strong, but I know the intensity of someone hitting a lift. You obviously have no fucking clue about that. Go back to squatting 125 lbs.
