Weight Lifting

Discussion in 'Vintage Topic Archive (Sept - 2009)' started by Spot, Dec 29, 2007.

  1. Here is a picture that I thought I would share of my son :D . It was taken at a weight lifting match at Jamil Temple in Columbia S.C. . He squated 750 lbs .
    Look close and you can see the chains that they install because if the lifter drops the bar the spotters won't be able to hold it .

  2. Good show.

    I miss lifting but will never be able to lift heavy again, bad knees and a torn rotator cuff :cry:

  4. Wow, the term "Bigboy" doesnt even begin to describe it. That's alot of weight, about 3.5 of me!
  5. Goood lord....Thats a lot of weight. I took weightlifting as a phis ed. I saw a ton of improvement in my mid thigh pull and squats.
  6. He weighed in at 306 lbs. for this match.
  7. Good Lord - who feeds that kid?????? :lol:

    When he was in the 11th grade a USMC recruter came to his school and asked him ( What do you want to do in my Marine Corp ) and to this he answered and said that I want to kill people. So you never know.

    Impressive, squats are one of the most tiring forms of weight lifting.

    I was flirting w/ 700 on squat the same time I dislocated my hip in a Football game. Chains would have been a nice re-assurance, all we had was 2 horiz. bars in the cage to stop the weights 2' from the ground.

    PT for the dislocation saw me doing 20lbs squats in a shallow pool. havent attempted a squat since, and frankly I'm scared I'd fall apart.
  18. ARI, Not much , I was his spotter.

    Had to give it another look and a bump. Again you gotta be proud Mr Spot.
    I am a slow starter and at age 39 I have a 3 year old and a 4 month old and I am proud of them, but DAMN my hats off to you and your son's determination to competetivly lift like that.

    Great form.
