Where is Staley when we need him? Only an "excersizer" would be sold or impressed by anything being harder than something else. Hard is easy to do, effective is much more difficult.
Chris won!

Of course it's functional. Cavemen used to do high rep back squats using tree limbs to create fire.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

I have a great story from today's session. And this was not from a globo, this was from an actual weightlifting gym with nationally-ranked lifters.

Some guy walks in with wraps on both knees, both wrists, and I think elbows, and a belt. Funny already. Then he proceeds to snatch like 70kg, with a rounded back and with his arms bent at 90 degrees at the top. Okay, so far, stupid, but not terrible.

Then he puts on like 85 kg and does some bad power cleans and goes back to 70kg for the snatches. Now this is where it gets funny. At the top of every bent arm snatch, he began saying phrases like "that's how it's done" and "that's why they call me the living legend." I'm not joking.

As if that wasn't funny enough, he stripped down to an American flag competition singlet. Then he pulled out ammonia caps, sniffed and chucked them, screamed a little bit, and continued his terrible snatches. He was doing triples, but after every rep he would turn around and face the other way (as if it made a difference).

All he did was a bunch of bent arm snatches and some power cleans, then he left.

My coach just shook his head.

Rofl. Shane, are you trolling us? That's Brian Drescher you're talking about. (He can't fully extend his elbows, just FYI). All links WFS.

10x70kg power snatches
135kg power snatch (he had better elbow extensibility back then)
Brian lifting at a meet.

It's easy to see why he's a living legend.
