Thatís how I visualise my chiropractor - when lying face down having bits of my back click unexpectedlyÖ

just mental. Not just from a strength perspective, but co-ordination and commitment too.

Lasha does it again https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/olympics/58090804 (apologies for the iplayer link).

I love how his opening lifts start after everyone else has finished.

What a performance.
I watched his last heavy training session the other day, this outcome was written.

I wonder what the Georgian secret to avoiding getting caught doping is. Whatever it is I hope they keep it up. Surely he is capable of the 500 kg total and it would be incredible to see it happen (bring on Paris 2024?!).

Same secret as literally everyone else I guess; good chemistry and bribes!

Whatever the secret is,  it's not fool proof, according to an article in the Guardian, he had a two-year ban when he tested positive for stanozolol in 2013.

Interesting, though highly stylised, documentary called Icarus in which a cyclist sets out to try and cheat the doping tests, and becomes embroiled in the exposure of state-funded doping in Russia. On Netflix [/off-topic-film-recommendation]

 Am genuinely interested, why do the top weightlifters in the heavier divisions carry so much extra fat? Is there any advantage?

From my armchair understanding, basically they have to smash loads of food when training so they can build strength. As a side effect this means they'll also put on a lot of fat. Bodybuilders will typically then cut so they look lean and well defined, but you can't train strength while cutting so for a weighlifter there's no advantage to having a cut phase (unless you're trying to hit a weight limit). It's also worth remembering that they're totally stacked as well, there's a fuck ton of muscle underneath that fat.

Pretty sure in a documentary / video clip, Eddie Hall said he was on 10,000 calories a day. And was pretty rubbish on the campus board.

Thanks for this. It makes sense, it's been driving me a bit mad trying to work it out

Also in the super-heavy division there's no weight cap.

If there's a weight cap then body comp is more a concern because you want to be as close to the cap as you can and you want as much muscle as you can get, so if you are maxing out the weight due to too much fat, that's bad.

But in the top division, there's no cap. It doesn't matter how much you weigh. So there's less body comp there as well.

Clearly 1.5 mm edge on the end of a massive sloper, back around...
