I'm trying to build up my rep on The Other Board though.

Someone called me "the biggest asshole on here" over there the other day :D

Feels good doesn't it? Probably on a par with my "most arrogant poster on VF" tag. :D

As Mike Tyson once said: People hate me. That's ok, just spell my name right (at the top of yet another challenge table).

Be afraid! The master of the push press has discovered this thread and will soon begin to wreak havoc! :twisted:

:mrgreen:
The plan:
1) 700 kg total and 290 kg deadlift (IPF RAW Junior World Record)
2) 762,5 kg total and 277,5 kg squat (All-Time Drug Tested RAW World Record with Wraps)
3) 762,5 kg total and 275 kg squat (All-Time Drug Tested RAW World Record without Wraps)
4) 775 kg total (All-Time World Record Total, regardless of testing)

I did 5x5 50kg this morning. BW is probably about 84kg

Seems a long way off.


Pffffttt still seems a long way off, even now at 95kg I would struggle to press 84kg.
Are we talking strictness here?
