Did he really say that?
So I was just watching a Strongman competition on tv. They were doing the deadlift with an axle for a total weight of 705lbs. Very impressive to see guys bust out five and six reps with that amount of weight.
Anyway, the announcer was talking about the difficulty of the lift at that weight and said(Direct quote) "Some athletes say its like picking up a dead weight straight off the ground."
It's "like" picking up a dead weight? Isn't that exactly what it is?
