    No kidding! The IPF world record, single ply, is 752 lbs, so he's 65 pounds over the world record.

    Wow, maybe this could have went unsaid, reading it over.
    You're funny.

    I personally think that Klokov is reason enough for anyone to choose Olympic weightlifting, but I'm biased.

    How about:

    It was off a 2 board though. I have the video in my log, check it out. There were some strong guys/gals there. His shirt was funny, it said "Titan Katana" and then it had a little symbol below it that said "IPF Approved" on it.

    Pretty much all my teammates use Titan Katanas now.

    Yeah, it seems like a real solid single-ply shirt. Is it hard to get that shirt over the head?

    From what I've seen, the difficulty lies not so much in getting it over the head as getting the sleeves up. That's very hard and requires iron fingers and a lot of sweaty work.

    I like the konstanovs (sp) guy with the distended abs. I've never seen him lift, he just looks manly as hell.

    That video was impressive. He actually made the split look manly there at the end. I think that might be a first in my book, heh. *runs* Any reason why he squats sooooo low?

    Because he catches his cleans and snatches sooooo low.
