You'll be ripped by summer!!!

I had a mate who got the same diagnosis. He was snacking a lot between meals. Not eating junk food, but getting sandwiches and boiled eggs as appetisers to his three squares a day.

You're probably going to have to lose bodyfat.

A lot of people store fat 50/50 between around their organs and under their skin: others have more around their organs and less under their skin.

Changing your diet can help, but it's still plenty easy to keep your body composition exactly the same - only now you are eating "clean" foods.

How much do you weigh - at what height - and what sort of bodyfat percentage are you?

Heinla is the only other guy who, in m'humble opinion, could break 501kg on a bar and calibrated plates.

He deserves a shot at the ten grand.

Thor lifts with pure mong strength, but always within himself and the confines of his programme.

Him, his camera man and his dad. All doing the weights they set out to do. All giving each other a high 5 on a good lift/PR.

Shaw posts videos saying "900lbs squat" which turns out to be a 600lb squat and some rather speculative band tension. That's not how they record squats at Westside, SBC, or any other big powerlifting gym that employs accommodating resistance.

All the while being metaphorically fellated by a group of ne'erdowells and has-beens screaming at him that he is the man.

Someone already mentioned on her how demotivating it must be, when you surround yourself with people who tell you that you are doing "GRRRRRRR-REAT" all the time.

Now, it appears, he is relying on being a charity case - or on past glories - in order to circumvent qualifying criteria.

Cheers Wayne.

He's a young lad. And clearly clueless.

Whenever a bar touches the crook of my elbow, I think of you.

Wistfully.

I don't think he will this year. It's the second day of competition and for it to happen you almost need two guys capable or at least nearly capable of getting the 501kg to actually push him to go that high mid comp.


True. And it would have to be a make or break event, not the first of the day.

Thor is a smart cookie, and not going to risk tearing a hamstring and losing the competition.

Also, 501kg on an elephant bar is not the same as 500kg on slimline calibrated plate on a deadlift bar.

I'm really hoping someone talks Arnie out of that. Entirely defeats the point of a qualification process.


Were this to happen to any other athlete - other than Lasha Talakhadze, or someone else similar outside the sport - Shaw would send his rattle so far out of his pram: that he would secure another world record in the weight for height.

The more I watch of the man - the less I seem to like him.

Everything from giving it the big "I am" about buying an overly expensive truck - to that god forsaken hype team he has around him, blowing smoke up his arse on every weight from 135 onwards - makes me think he has become a mark for himself: and disappeared up his own fundament.

I left a rather disgruntled review on Facebook.

One of the owners of RP Fitness contacted me directly and actually asked me to select an adjustable bench from the Watson Gym Equipment website - top notch, high end gear - that would be suitable for my use. This is way beyond what I expected!!!!

I therefore amended my review accordingly.

Bench Press.

This was a fiasco.

I am 6'7" and struggle to fit the very low height of the fixed bench presses they have at the gym. They're Watson, but they are not adjustable and the top j hook is just far too low.

We set up a bench in the rack in order to press. We removed the safety pins and started doing cambered bar presses. At no point did the bar touch the pins. Because they had been removed, prior to any lifting.
The same member of staff who didn't know what a rack pull was, told us we were doing pin presses. I pointed out that the pins had been removed and the bar was being lifted off the j hooks. I even showed him on an adjacent rack what a pin press was.
He then pointed to the gym rules board and said no benches are allowed in the rack.
Nowhere on the board does it state this. Nor has it ever.

We put everything back and did the following.

DB Bench up to 37.5kg x 8, then 30kg x 15, 10, 12

Seated Iso Rows up to 4 plates a side x 6 x 2 sets, then 3 plates x 10

Reverse Flyes x 12 x 3 sets.

Straight Arm Pressdowns: 10 x 4 sets ascending weight.
