I was going to say I'd rather be dead. Not only would I take a little soreness, but I'm not convinced most of that stuff has any significant effect -- although he seems to be doing well for himself.
You have to have your own gym if you are going to yell and drop the bar like that when you deadlift. He would be kicked out and banned from 90% of the gyms in America.
A lot of those supplements are from a multi level marketing company. Nothing wrong with that, he might really like them. He must be doing something right.
Maybe in commercial gyms but not in a hard core powerlifting gym. When I walk into a gym I always count the number of mirrors, do they have chrome equipment, is there a fern in the corner? If so, then it's not for me. : )You have to have your own gym if you are going to yell and drop the bar like that when you deadlift. He would be kicked out and banned from 90% of the gyms in America.
Steve's accomplishments in the TSC are nothing short of impressive in my opinion. As far as the Sinister Standard, this is how I look at it Robert. It's just a number. There comes a time in our lives when gains come hard. At least for me anyway. I know guys who have had some of there best lifts in their 50's but they were also quite heavier than when they started. Some, maybe most didn't have the movement ability they had when they started either. If I take my injury out of the equation, I'm guessing that the bulldog would be a fine accomplishment. Actually meeting the time standards with the beast? Not sure, but I would be happy just doing a few sets with the beast. That's just me, I'm 58, suffered a debilitating injury, and would just like to be healthy and wise. Wealthy would be cool too but...That is a pretty impressive performance at 55. I'm glad I watched that. I was wondering if the Sinister Standard is too much for me at 50 years old. I will keep practicing and see what happens over the course of the next year.
I get what you're saying. There's a good story with why Steve takes what he does. Because of it Steve believes in what he takes and I can tell you that is diet is nothing other than on point also. Steve very well could be someone who is in that 1% of the population. JMHOA lot of those supplements are from a multi level marketing company. Nothing wrong with that, he might really like them.
