I actually made a mistake. Today I did Sumo Deadlifts (not traditional) I feel like I can handle more weight with that stance.

2 weeks ago when I failed I was doing traditional deadlifts, and it's more of a mental barrier for me than anything else and training with these guys are really bringing my numbers up.

I've yet to max out on all my lifts yet. I'm going to assess them next week

I'm pretty sure I failed a 130kg deadlift like a week before hitting 134kg x 4 a while back, so I know how that feels. Sometimes you miss shit you know you can handle.

So how ridiculouslt out of this world massive is a guy like Rychlak face to face?

He's actually not as massive as you think. Though he is still pretty big standing next to me. From what Chris tells me he used to be a lot bigger, apparently he lost a lot of weight. His calves are huge. But other than that if you saw him walking down the street and you had no idea who he was, he wouldn't look that impressive.

There were some other guys there walking around that if you saw them you'd be like dude, your going to die from all the steroids.

There was another guy that was a judge and trains at westside barbell and me and my buddy darrell were like "dude, where is this guys neck?" and his upper body was massive like he was pulled out of a comic book, yet his ankles were like toothpicks and he was walking around like he had just had surgery on both knees.

"Hes actually not as massive as you think" I spit water on my computer reading that... thanks haha. I met Matt Kroc a while ago with some friends visiting michigan, and I felt the same way about him as you did that judge. I could feel my testosterone levels rising just in his presence haha. Great work man, keep it up, you could be a real solid PLer

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

He really isn't that big. He's fat like Tank Abbott but his arms and his calves are huge.

He looks like he's never picked up a weight in his life put it that way. He's just fat
