Is there a powerlifting sub-forum here? I didn't see it or glanced over it
Did a search, and didn't see anything come up about this guy.
Crazy neurals.

Speed on the concentric parts of his lifts is astounding, no stretch effect either, woah.

fast. twitch. machine.

insane. crazier to me than the pat mendes stuff (or chris, sorry breh) because he's SO FREAKING LIGHT. He weights like 181 pounds! That's almost a 4.25xbw dead lift!

Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Stretch reflex begins to dissipate after about 0.2 seconds but can be held for at least two seconds in trained athletes. Just because he isn't dive bombing the eccentric doesn't mean he's not using a stretch reflex. Not that's he's any less awesome!

 He also has a squat suit on in the wr video, here is a raw squat video of his, loads his glutes and p chain like a champ, gets plenty of quad activity, great squatting especially for a sprinter.

What a behemoth... I weigh about the same as him and can only wish that I was that boss, lol. Granted he's got 4 years on me, that's still friggin nuts. If i could be close to this in 4 years I would be happy.

Nice stats. Damn. His raw squat is much more impressive to me than his suited. But his DL is just freaky.

He's a deadly lifter. He doesn't sprint anymore but I think maybe his powerlifting would transfer over to the 60m a little bit coz he's still only around 5'10 180, which isn't even that heavy for a sprinter.

Best part of the squat and DL videos was the music in the background.  You see so many videos of guys deadlifting 300 listening to hard rock or rap and this guy is putting them all to shame while listening to Adele.
