arnold's the man
Was there any reason that they tapered the weights like that?
franco deadlifting 1200lbs
that's my governor baby, no wonder california is the bomb shit
is that a dog sitting next to him? wtf?
Arnold started out as a Powerlifter in Austria (atleast hew said so before the WPO finals at a recent Arnold Classic)
you have got to be shitting me
ease of loading, putting a punch of 45s/100s on a bar are a pain if you dont have a jack
i could have sworn they said 1200lbs when i was reading through arnolds bible where that picture was posted, i might be wrong though
no might about it.
you are very wrong, world record isnt even close to that...franco has touched near 700 back in the day...still crazy for a guy who never weighed much over 185
I would bet that those are 45lb bumper plates that franco is using.
oh well, fuck me then
Anyone know if Bene Magnusson has broken the 1k deadlift yet?
nope, just old school 45's...
Take a look at the plate on the left side of the picture. We had some like that in highschool, wide as fuck rim so you looked even more badass benching 135.
not in competition
