Anyone else watch the world record deadlift? Just curious what you all thought, I was kinda disappointed he only went for 1kg over Eddie halls record.
Yeah kinda douchish really but still whoa
At those weights. Adding 2.2 pounds is the difference between success and failure. I am sure as you all know when you go for PRs adding 5 pounds, hell adding 1/2 pound can mean the diff between a lift or failure. I did lifts where I wanted to raise the bar and added 5 pounds and failed. I when back to training and added 2.2 pounds and made the lift and would have won. So long story, I’m good with 2.2lbs over the record.
I agree at those weights 5 pounds can make a huge difference, that’s why I think you need to go a bit over 1kg to break it, I personally thought he could have done 510kg, he talked a lot of possibly attempting 520kg, I’m not sure he would have gotten that.
He could have got more
Just caught it on IG.
He made that look easy.
Now I see Thor challenged Eddie to a fight, and Eddie accepted. I dunno about that,seems like a money grab, payperview and all that, just seems staged now at this point.
Yeah did you see the sparring match w McGregor? Then he said it would take 5 McGregors to get him
Thor has more to lose than Eddie, his whole brand would take a big hit if he lost.
Well you know this was all set up to get a big payday on payperview, no way if he just challenged him on Saturday they would have this much set up already.
Can’t be excited for something over a year away
Im into it I would like to see these guys throw hands with each other
Lol it won’t be long winded
Wonder who Vegas will have as the favorite.
I’d ring up Iron Mike and have him train me if I were one of these guys.
I don’t think that he would but I would definitely try to get my cardio routine way up these guys have the power but I don’t see this going farther than 3 rounds.
Also I don’t know how they are going to do the testing for PEDS because both of them rely on gear to keep there size.
They have alot of training that they need to do or this will just be a laughable event but im still into it for sure
I wouldn’t want to be punched by either, with that power they could really get messed up for life with a solid punch to the temple.
All it would take is one from someone who weighs in at 150lb these guys could really hurt each other do you think that they will wear big 16oz gloves and head gear ?
I’m betting they wear head gear, toe to toe in the center of the ring. Not much movement lol.
did you guys ever watch one of the gracies fight that Russian strong man? Its on YouTube and VERY short
