    Some guys will do anything to be able to pile more weight on the bar. Looks like his forearms got a semi-okay workout.

    I couldn't fathom why he was strapping in, as if it were a deadlift where grip is an issue, but then I saw the belly bounce and understood (well, "understood" is a strong word! lol) There are crazy people everywhere, including the gym. icon_rolleyes.gif

    What the hell. I'm glad he is so overweight otherwise his rib cage would've been crushed. Total fail.

    WTH. His only effort was lifting it OFF the rack.

    Someone needs to add the "FAIL" to that youtube video.

    I'm not sure that he really didn't know what he was doing. Perhaps he was not trying to build muscle, just strength and power. Many power lifters have the worst bodies but they have awesome power. Somewhere in that lifting motion there's a jerk, which somewhat resembles a modified "clean and jerk" (it's an olympic weightlifting/powerlifting event).

    You are a generous soul! icon_smile.gif
    It's true many strong lifters have big guts, but I don't think anything can justify that bizarre display! (Btw, there is no such thing as "an Olympic weightlifting/powerlifting event." Olympic lifts are the "fast" ones: clean, jerk, snatch. Powerlifting covers the "slow" ones: squat, bench press, deadlift.)

    that would totally get the WTF face from me.
    He was also on an incline bench so it appears he got an okay shoulder workout because he was doing a Laying-Front Raise?

    Guy doing squats on the ball- I would run from him and that gym.
