Following on from JoeB's thread of Powerlifting greats, here are a few Lemon Fresh greats

Juri Zakharevich, probably my favourite lifter of all time. 210 snatch at 110 BW

Leonid Taranenko, one of the best Superheavies ever

Naim Suleymanoglu - pound for pound the best weightlifter of all time

Vasily Alexeyev perhaps the best known weightlifter of all time, and one of the greats

235k press, pretty good, and don't forget he had to clean it first

Alexeyev again, 255k clean and jerk world record.... back in 1976!!!!

Antonio Krastev - 216k world record snatch

David Rigert - 222.5k clean and jerk, 90k BW. This lift was done in 1976 and would have taken the world title at 94k in 2007. Some lifter!!! He is now Russian coach, and you wouldn't mess with him!!!

All great lifters, and there are many more...

No clean and jerk suit, no snatch shirt, just a man and the bar on a platform!!!

Arrived at a very cold Adders. Handed Ste Turner, "that thing" that i had borrowed, even in a room full of people that he has lent "that thing" to many many times, he still manages to look both shifty and furtive as he stashes "that thing" in his towel round his neck!!!! Brief conversation with the man tells me his blood test results for "that liver thingy" are due in on Wednesday, he squatted tonight but not too heavy, and if i want any more of "that thing" type stuff he'll sort me out. God bless that there Turnermator, he is top man!!!!

After de-loading all weekend, i have said goodbye to the IMS, DOMS, and even the TKS has subsided somewhat. New programme, week 2, yum yum...

Power Snatch from hang
50 x3 x2
60 x3
70 x3
80 x3
90 x3
90 x3
90 x3 mission accomplished for tonight, that is all that was planned for tonight... go on then, put a bit more on for a sneaky single. "Alan, what do you reckon? Do one with 95", "Yeah" says Alan "One f**kin set of three", that told me
95 x3 not bad... "Do it again" says Alan
95 x3 that's me done then... "Are you doing one more set then?" says Alan "Oh right... ok" is my response..."Right then" says Alan "Put a bit more on for the last one!"
97.5 x3 And with that i really am finished

70 x5
115 x3
160 x3
180 x3
200 x3
200 x3
200 x3

50 x5
60 x3
70 x3
80 x3
90 x3
80 x3 x3

Good little workout, Alan made me do more than was planned, which is always a good thing. Onward and upward!!!

The fat fool is guilty, take him from here and hang him from where his neck should be till he is no longer a dozy dvd dropping f**kwit!!!
» Turner says... (Go to post)03-11-2007 @ 22:55 
Friday saw more of a Turner Does, rather than a Turner Says...

Ste has recently moved over to Sumo style deadlifting and was doing some of the same Friday. Good warm up, nice technique, all was going well....

I turns round and Ste is over the bar, in the last thro's of preparation to begin his lift. The rest of the lads were watching and shouting encouragement, but no-one had the same vantage point as me nor the same view...

"Ste, sort your legs out mate, you've got one in and one out!!!"

You see in the excitement of the moment, young Ste had positioned himself with one leg for the conventional deadlift and one for Sumo....

Once corrected, The Turnermator executed what was probably his best deadlifts ever which was commented on by AlanGrin

The set was a good one indeed, amid the congratulations from the lads Ste let out a mighty "Yaaaar!!" in fine Pirate styley, to underline his satisfaction!!!! Good man Ste!!!!

Pete is a big soft baby who needs to be wanted do not pander to his needs. He either brings his log over or remains the c**t that he is....
