that doesnt really convince me.
lets take it back to max log - I know I can lift around 90% 1rm very regularly with little risk of failure. I am far better doing weights around that percentage week in, week out than going for 95%+ with the added risk of a failed lift. why?
- 90% lifts mean I can can hit many more of them in my build up than if I were using higher percentages. more lifts means more consistency which is important when you are lifting in competition as you only get one shot at making the lift.
- 90% lifts are more likely to be technically perfect. therefore you are training for technical perfection. form tends to break down on higher percentage lifts which leads to ingraining poor technique.
- lifting has a strong psychological element - with technical lifts such as log in particular. if you fail a certain weight that has the potential to plant a seed of failure in your mind. 'bogey weights' are a real phenomena that should be avoided.
- following on from that, in the internet age, when lifting competitively there is all kinds of psychological warfare going on before you even get to comp day. if a competitor sees one of their rivals posting a vid of a crappy lift they will get a psychological boost from that - sometimes an edge like that can make all the difference. in fact, an easy looking, technically perfect lift can serve as a more effective marker - case in point - hixxys recent log press vs thor and warry lheels.
- failing a lift, or grinding it out for that matter, also takes a lot out of you physically. for me, itll take a couple of weeks before I can get to hitting those high percentage weights again. that is a couple of weeks of wasted prep time.
- added on to that, the risk of injury is correlated to the weight on the bar and I would imagine it spikes up significantly at 95%+.
to be honest, it seems quite simple - the risk/reward is just not worth it. maybe im missing something though.


This Is an excellent post.

I would certainly feel more confident hitting comfortable 90% than iffy 95% weights.

Thor is WSM, but failing, or close to failing can't be that beneficial. He is world class and it won't likely bother him too much, but failing weights is not good for lesser mortals.

RS86 said: Phenomenal presser. He has talked about the British record but never talked up the World record much, I def think he is a contender for it though. Maybe keeping the pressure off?


He's definitely gunning for the World record and I think he has a chance in the near future.

Absolutely and I nearly put something to this effect but couldn’t be arsed. Lol


To be honest he has a bit to go before he reaches Graham level.

Larry might find the cleans getting tough, but he has the power to press anything.

I actually think Hixxy goes slightly under the radar, least by casual fans.

He Is a f**king animal, especially pressing.

10x better than Thor’s or Larry’s.


Yeah for sure.

However Larry has only started doing it to be fair.

Wayne_Cowdrey said:Loal @ the concept of being inappropriately placed in a list.

Here's a list:

Shaw, Thor, Savickas, me, Hall, Ahola, Kaz, Magnusson.

Cool


Add Mariusz and that is a complete list lol

Perhaps the other coach deserves great priase for the foundations.

Has her max squat or deadlift ever went over 220?

Thor will definitely move it...both Pritchett and Benni got 500 off the floor.
I actually hope Shaw just does his 3 lifts and ignores the 501. He can go for a bigger lift in July, which will pretty much be the biggest raw lift if people don't want to count the elephant bar.. ..i am assuming Thor will suit up for it.


Brian is all business

I think he is hyping the 501, but he is too shrewd to go for it.

He wants to win the Arnolds again.

Mikeneto said:Thor has done a huge deadlift recently and the second rep went up well. With rest he will be good to go.

But if Shaw and Thor both go for 501 i can see them being f**ked for the rest of the show.


I think Thor will go for 501 and Brian will play it safe.

to be fair if Brian goes for it, it won't leave the floor so he will be safe enough.

I think Thor might have the strength to get it moving, but I can't see him getting it (hope I'm wrong).

Yes I was wrong about Eddie not getting 500, but Ed was f**king speed repping 450 during training.
