    with a decent weight?
    Something different from the "I saw a douchebag curling in squat rack" threads....;)


    Clean and press for me.... though I'd love to see somone do snatches but never have.

    I watch people at my gym to learn from. For me it just depends. But I value form. I have seen perfect form 450lb deadlifts by one member and I was amazed.

    yeah i was going to say clean and press also.. there is so much technique at play - when i watched an olympic weightlifting competition, this tiny little bastard walked out and lifted almost 3 times the weight i could do (under instruction by my weightlifting coach at the time) and i was absolutely amazed :eek3:
