Inspiration: Brad Gillingham 881 pound Deadlift

WOW! I took this off of Aaron's blob. Be sure to check out his reviews of the Arnold this year below:

Arnold Chapter 8 ~ The Airport

Wow! 881 lbs by Brad. That is crazy and a personal record (PR) for him. He is a professional powerlifter and GNC Pro Performance® team member, lifetime drug free and has been inducted into the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) Hall of Fame. Despite what you may think, powerlifting gear and suits do not seem to help the deadlift much (as compared to the squat and bench).

Congrats again to Brad. He is also one of the nicest, most helpful athlete you will ever meet.

Rock on
