    drugs my friend

    they have to stay in the same weight category that's why they try to stay the same size.


    500kg lift in what? please specify....

    500kg clean and jerk? that would be incredible by any standard

    Clean and jerk 500kg? lol where did you here that? He wont be using half a ton clean and jerk mate.

    Or do you mean combined with snatch aswell?

    Thats more weight than the world record deadlift or bench press, he would be worlds strongest man easily if he could clean n jerk 500kg.

    aha, i wasn't specific hehe...

    looks set to increase his world records towards the 500-kg mark in two lifts but may wait until Beijing in 2008 to attempt this mythical weight.


    but seriously have a look at his pic! anyone explain why he isn't bulky at all?

    Although the best out there at the moment, he isnt doing as much as the SH's of the 80's/ 90's mate, and those guys were well off 500K. 480 may be, 500? cant see it IMO.

    As for not being bulky, the key word is proportions. 160K Bwt is fcuking huge in any language. We're probably talking 40"thighs 60+chest 20+neck. Believe me the guy is a monster

    The guy is no lightweight

    If he can achive this then he will break new ground and it will be a very impressive achivement to say the least
