It takes mass to move mass. How many times have I heard this? A big misconception is that you need to get big in order to lift big. It definitely helps and I am not saying there is no truth in getting stronger from gaining mass. Aside: You can ask Tyler Cone about his plan to get really fat for one year so he can lift a ton of weight super easily. You can also ask his new wife Andrea Cone why he is not allowed to do this.

Lifting an insane amount of weight is really cool. But, at least in my opinion, it’s more impressive if you look at strength to bodyweight ratio. Yeah that big guy does “Grace” in less than 2 minutes but what about the smaller guy doing 30 nearly bodyweight clean and jerks? That’s pretty awesome. Gymnastics represents a good measure of true strength to bodyweight but I also like workouts like the one we are doing today. So big or small, tall or short, see how you stack up against Christine.

    It might take mass to move mass, but losing mass is a huge help with this one…
    3/13 – 10:11 @175 (scaled… I haven’t weighed 175 since high school)
    8/13 – 10:43 @225
    11/13 – 11:24 @ 230
    12/13 – 11:11 @235
    7/18/14 – 10:38 @225 pr! I know it was probably psychological… but the bar felt sooooo much lighter today.
    Nice work 530…

    Because of a sore left Achilles, I had to step down from the box. No rebounding slowed me down.
