Tom Platz would have won that with ease lol..
but great idea this "bro's vs pro's" from RXM, it's awesome to watch. Thanks Natzo!
i was impressed with that june dude. he was doing ATG while pretty much everyone else were doing partials
i cant believe that 15 year old kid got any of his reps counted
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
The partial squat is something I notice happening too much nowadays, but it happens way less often here in europe compared to the US. While i was there on exchange, i saw a lot of guys "squattin". They were cheering each other one while they were performing quarter squats with 240 for reps, yet they did full ROM on the bench with 315 lol, its the ego gettin in the way most of the time
Over here in Europe, you see that lifters learn to really squat and how much weight is used isnt that important, while ive seen my shares of heavy squatters here, many guys with awesome leg development barely squat more then 180kg. But those 180kg are ATG
Theres this other group of dudes at my gym that have such shitty ROM that i consider them to be lockouts only. They load the bar with extreme ammounts of weight and bearly nudge the bar up and down lol. One of them brags to everyone that he can bench 450 but he cant even do 2 plates with full ROM. Bunch of jokes. A buddy of mine that goes to the gym is very weak and doesnt lift much weight on any exercize but atleast he does full ROM on all the exercizes.
everytime i see your avatar it makes me wonder lol
It's no wonder to me at all that the 15 y/o didn't have a single full rep. I would say I'm impressed that he just got under 405, but I really can't stand people that do it like that. Ego of course.
Oh and I'm pretty sure Palumbo was giving him reps cause he knew the kid wasn't going to win, he was just being nice.
