I also agree with this. And i would like to say before i start talking a little **** that I have a ton of respect for powerlifters the only one I don't is gene rychlak. That guy held up the competition my buddy was in for over an hour so he could attempt over 1000 lbs 2 times and didn't even get it. That fat bastard is a disgrace to powerlifting imo. He had a hard time w/ 405 w/o his shirt. Way out of line. But he still got inducted into the hall of fame that same weekend. Who the hell deserves to be inducted to the hall of fame then anybody that can bench over 405 then, no, its any fat guy that can manipulate a shirt to add about 500lbs plus to his bench. My pl friend that compete and one that has a couple of amateur records even hated the guy and said he is a disgrace.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
All the respect in the world to you exnihilo and all other pl's ..... just not guys like gene rychlak. He doesn't deserve it. There is a purpose for your gear and like I said before my friends use all that **** too but they still bust their asses hard core in the gym every day and eat like pigs day in and day out, and even have to diet to make weight but still keep strength.. Its impressive and not your fault their are freaks like gene that have piano string wound in their suits to restrict motion as much as possible but then set the bar so high for the rest of you.
