do people think an overhead press is good for powerlifting (bench press)? i heard seated overhead lockouts are good for benching

I couldn't find his best bench, but I don't think he could do as much as the metal milisha guys

Far too many people making money off this legendary strength coaches programs. Far too many.

Fadi aside, there is not a lifter on here could hold a candle to Bill Starr.

Bill Starr is a legend. Did olympic lifting (only national? cant remember). Set a national American record in the deadlift of 666lbs / 302.7 kg. Was strength coach at American football team. Wrote the classic book Only The Storng Survive which I proudly own. How could you not have heard of him? Bloody kids..

True. But he wasn't a powerlifter. He was an olympic lifter and rarely did the lift in his training if at all. I believe he would squat 500lbs+/227kg at the same meets while in the 198lb/90kg senior class which is where he set the national record.


Imagine if was on the same amount of gear ronnie used.
