Is suited lifting pointless?

To be unburdened by shame sounds like quite the luxury.
However, I am a man who once under the influence of recreational drugs, hurled a living frog at a horse after breaking into a farm in the middle of the night.
There are worse things as well... (like the time I participated in equipped powerlifting).
I have shame.


This is added to one of the many reasons I like you, Tom

In answer to the thread title - "yes"

Can Donnie do this with his wide open high squat . NO ! So who has the power and who has the skill with eqipment . Top powerlifters has nothing on top strongmen . Realize that . The real strongest are the strongmen .


The real strongest are the wide open high squatters, because they are WIDE OPEN and BULLETPROOF!!

So just to confirm your input into this conversation
1 in you opinion the point of reference for all powerlifting is Donnie Thomson
2 big Z said suits are only if you are too weak to lift the weights and the reason he wore one in the final of this years WSM was for protection and confidence
3 powerlifting suits is for not very strong people for ego pump but strongman suits are for protection and give no help
4 The strongest powerlifters have nothing on the strongest strongmen and the real strongest are the strongmen
5 and I need to realize that

Thank you savolainen87 I can't really argue with they points fair play

U have to understand that it's not only lifting from A to B , but the point is how u lift it . And why use equipment ? It's not your power ? And a lot of tehnique . For example Rahman did 300 kg bench press with no legs . And Spotto did 327 with a big arch . So who is stronger . Z did 221 log with almost no leg drive , and Misha jerks 210 . Not even close .
Same with powerlifting . Make all your backs flat on the bench and no shirts. Deep squats like Kaz back in the day . No wide spread legs on the dead . This is power . These are the rules that powerlifting must have .

big Z is my hero I consider him to be the strongest man to ever walk the plannet I even named my pet fish after him but my heart is brokem as i have been told that in the final of WSM the suit he wore was actually a powerlifting suit used for not very strong people for ego pump rather than just a strongman suit that gives no power and only protection and the suit actually worked against him and this is why Brian shaw beat him. some not very strong powerlifter must have switched his suit for badness as he knows strongman is stronger and he had just realized that

Benidict Magnusson could lift with any of them in powerlifting. Actually think Mark Henry could compete if he was at his best. Also I know Andy Bolton competes equipped, but Im sure he could put up big raw numbers, especially in the squat and deadlift!

Are we talking ego pump lifts or super high open lifts, there is a difference.
