The big 21 is awesome. It's what I've been using to get my snatch in shape. Brutally beautifully brilliant. (Say that 3X as fast as you can!)
Wow.

I have been known to do clean yet amazingly offensive (but only to idiot sensitive weenies) stand-up routines on a stage. With a mike. And people in seats...

I saw a tape of myself and got all upset due to how damned fat I looked on it, so that's why I started getting all serious with my working out. Maybe I should go back to the stage...

Hmmm ...Ron, methinks you have a dirty mind!

Jamila,

I'd laugh with you. I'm no weenie. . I'm not, I'm not, I'm not!

MOD,

Yes, that's a Cosmo; a verry strong Cosmo. No cherry.

Ouch. Currently working my way up from a candyass deadlift to 500.
Ok so now I either have to add 115 pounds to me max max on the DL or lose 11 pounds and get under 180! Sheesh. I do know what you mean though Dave, I was all proud of getting 2xBW a few months ago and then last month I ran cross Steve saying that over at P+B. Talk about ego crusher!

To be honest though, 500 seems right now to be impossible . The last time I dl'ed close to my max max I felt like I was drained for days after and pretty much couldn't lift anything. Maybe I'll make it my goal for the end of this year. Hm.

I hear ya. I trained DL for about two months and was all smug with the double BW, then I ran across what the lightweights at your local raw powerlifting meet were pulling. Ummmm.... yea. Best be getting to it...for real this time.

Steve is an ego crusher, but it's also fair comment. 500 sounds big for a little guy but it's doable...Hell, even Pavel pulls 500.

Hence why I workout at Curves...why would I want to go anywhere else and deflate my ego like that??

I wonder if bodyfat has anything to do with dl'ing 500 lbs. Personally, I remember lifting a lot more weight when my bodyfat was in the double digits (same bodyweight) as opposed to now, with a low percentage of bf.

Steve, does your statement apply to all, the guy at 5%, as well as the guy at 12%? From what I experienced, the difference in bodyfat makes a big difference in strength and numbers. Would most agree?
