» Muscle massage guns (Go to post)12-04-2019 @ 11:04 
In my opinion like massage all these passive modalities will improve acute tightness but without further proactive modalities (stretching, dynamic movement patterns) they will not do much long term.

If you have tightness
*find the reason why ( 1-2 hours exercise per day leaves 22-23 hours for other behaviours to tighten you up)
*relax/ inhibit tight muscles
*perform lightly resisted new range of movement patterns

I think that if you put him next to someone else tall like thor and shaw and you would see his body proportions are quite different to them. Things like femur length to torso length ratios have a big effect on squatting and he looks like he probably has much shorter femurs than most people of his height and also his arms look relatively short too.

Quite possibly but that tends to then have weaker Deads and bench but these are both pretty good too

15% of fat on someone as muscle heavy as Thor is a lot of weight in fat. He would look much fatter than an 70kg runner with 15% body fat.

Sorry your logic is reverse. 15% on someone heavily muscled looks leaner than someone at 15% with less muscle.

15% on someone with a lot of muscle is quite lean looking and Thor currently is looking way more than 15%, low twenties potentially

Robbo said:I was surprised to see what these guys were pulling so close to the comp

Thor - 473 before and 474 at comp
Shaw - 466 before and somat similar at comp
Shiv- 440 and 442 at comp

Makes me wonder why they we’re pulling so heavy a week out?

Seemed like an instagram battle to me

Maybe their methods were not wrong, but the results above are hardly any different to training lifts. Makes me wonder

Is it equipment though, in the gym their making do to approximate as much as possible but might be slightly easier than comp set up - so not max in the gym

drex50 said:Larry is a freak presser for his size. Benching easy 220 x 5, 3 sets after 202 log is ridiculous.
And his bodyweight is around 130 kg i guess.
Very special dude.

Isn't his bodyweight around 240-250lbs. Looking at his condition doubt his put much bodyweight on since doing powerlifting

Nah, I've walked out and squatted 330 as a very skinny 80kg lifter, it took me less than a year to do this from a starting point of having never squatted more than 200 or so, plenty lighter have done a lot more, this isn't making an insurmountable amount of difference

Fair enough.

As a point of interest what would be the difference in your current walk out vs monolift squat now? Would it be the same?

323.5kg squat @75kg bodyweight!?!?

Monstrous squat, didn't look like he could even support it when first untracked the amount of tension/shaking.

Feel this does show the difference between monolift and walking a squat out - bit like sleeves/raw versus wrapped when comparing?

Most thought Fury would be too rusty for this fight - if that is true a rematch would have him controlling the fight more, moving better and less likely to be caught and with better stamina

The issue you have with second hand calibrated weight plates is you can buy 400kg + of rogue calibrated plates for less than you are suggesting as second hand price.

The deadlift for me does not look as tough as many have made out? Slows a little but wasn't a grind?

Doing something to try and rectify it isn't difficult for a short term result - stretch what's tight, strengthen what's lengthened.

The bigger issue is why?

Either what you do in every day life or a problem further down. If you what the people at AIM (anatomy in motion) say often it will be issues with the foot/ankle resulting in the body compensating further up - getting to the root cause is necessary for long term rectification
