From Matt's blog:

Deads for MuscleTech photo shoot with Johnnie Jackson

Deads 135x6,225x5,315x3,405x2,495x1,585x5
Dumbbell rows 70x10,120x10,300x10
Shrugs with farmer's walk implements 265x20

Even though we didn't go real heavy on deads the intensity was off the charts. Johnnie trains just as hard as any powerlifter that I have trained with and we really fed off each other. I really wish he lived closer so we could train together more often. Johnnie turned out to be a great guy, without the big pro bodybuilder ego that you hear about so often and the dude is thick as hell with crazy round muscle bellies and is legitimately strong as hell.

MuscleTech filmed the entire training session and it should be posted online by the end of the week. I will post it here when they tell me that it's up. Like I said while we didn't go ridiculously heavy the intensity was awesome. I'm sure you guys will love the footage. The pics from the shoot are going to be in Flex, MuscleMag and possibly in a few other mags as well.

Johnnie came out to train with me as another way to help himself prepare for a raw push/pull contest against big mouth bodybuilder Ben White. They are going to go head to head at the Mr. Olympia. I have no doubt that Johnnie will easily beat Ben and shut the guy up once and for all.

Kinda hard to tell, I know nothing about what Ben can deadlift and I don't really know what JoJ can bench raw(or with the gear they will use). :)

It will probably be pretty close, but I think that JoJ will win it.

his form is not as good as krocss but he still handled the 300s better then branch warren was doing 250s. :p

i liked the dynamic of kroc training with a bodybuilder. id buy a dvd if it was a full dvd of kroc with johnnie jackson. If only to see the differences between a full blown bodybuilder and a top powerlifter. they would have to each have a go at each others sessions tho :borat:

Well, if you check Matt Kroc's youtube-page you'll se him rowing insane Db's!

I wasn't referring to the DB, which I've seen the vids of before, I as referring to the "SuperHuman" comment as being a bit rich.

I quite liked the video itself. Matt and JoJ are a good pairing and don't go the massive advert route. I'd look forward to more vids of them training.:thumbsup2:

Branch would actually have to use a full ROM then. Can't see that happening :bitelip:

branch on the dvd would make it suck. it would take a good dynamic of kroc and johnnie and lame it up with over the top macho hooliganismns. "shot in black and white because quarter reps non stop swearing and throwing weights across the room is hardcore" ... who needs branch warren when you could have a dvd with johnnie, kroc and
