He looks like he had an easy triple for 745. No belt. I doubt he could find a belt to fit him. :ROFLMAO:

Usually when you see that much weight lifted it's some dude in a 3-ply suit and knee wraps waddling under a monolift.
I agree - huge difference between unracking and walking it out and unracking and have the hooks moved.
Still remember pictures of Ed Coan’s tibia folding in half walking out a heavy squat . Friggin brutal image

I wish you hadn't told me about that. The spotters were totally useless. They're lucky their feet weren't crushed.

West of the Atlantic. East of the ICW.
Back in the late 70s or early 80s there was a weightlifting competition either Olympics or Wide World Of Sports and a top lifter of the era, Alexeev perhaps, blew out his femur during a lift on live TV. Anybody remember that one.

I just put a landmine setup in my garage.

I may never do traditional squats again.

squats are just a tool. Lots of things work. This is a good exercise if you have long legs:
