    What a good diet can do for a powerlifter


    http://www.midwestbarbell.com/totale...showtopic=1110

    This pretty much answers that thread about bodyfat percentage and the myth that a lifter must have globs of bodyfat to put up impressive numbers.

    This is just reinforcement, plus an impressive story.

    Yah, those 'supplements' are always a nice addition to the process. I wonder though, 900+ lb squat at 20 years old, 700+ lb bench and multiple tears, did he possibly supplement before his time to hit those numbers/do other young pl'ers?

    He is 320lbs bro...

    I'd say he is a big boy, even by PL standards. There are not THAT many 400lbs+ PLers, if that is what you are reffering to. Sure they exist, but if you look at the average, if you look at what most would identify as a PL physique, that is not it. izza:

    Either way amazing job!
