    I know you asked Derek (and I know he'll answer later) but I would say wider stance AND front squats also. Aside from an actual squat event, most strongman events have the weight in front of the body (think stones, carries etc.) Front squats will mimic that feeling mor than back squats.

    Derek - How was that vaca? Did you hit 325lbs? And how do you feel about the Mohegan event (physically speaking)?
    Just doin' my thing.

    thanks tjoe.
    Derek, do you remember how much you were squatting and deadlifting when you were 19, the freaks like arild haugen and Kevin knee in strongman is crazy.
    thanks

    ST, I dont "prefer" any one movement over another. Storngman is just what the title suggests, bening as strong as possible to best perform any one of the crazy events we do. THat being said, I dont back sqaut too often due to my back injury, it tends to aggrivate the injury. THat being said, I am just now starting to do more back squats as I used to rely mostly on front squats for the reason Joe states. Narrow squats and both wude sqauts have their place, it depends on hwere you are comfortable and what suit you use if any. Hope this helps!!

    This is quickly becoming the ST question and Poundstone answer page My unequiped numbers were around a 675 deadlift and 585 lbs squat. By the time I was 19 I was only squatting and deadlifting for about a year. Prior to that I only did smith machine squats and leg presses.

    Bout time!! I been asking Dave to do that for a while. Knowing you are close by and the growing interest in strongman AND lets face it... It's more fun to watch than bodybuilding workouts.

    330! You been eatin' good!

    Any idea what events you will be working this weekend?
    Just doin' my thing.

    I must've missed that story... fill me in. But anyway i have a feeling maybe Dave would be sending someone else (although it would be cool to have the him there to do it "proppa").

    I don't remember the exact story. I just know he got pulled over in CT and the cop was a brutal. He had to appear in court and everything. I think it was a month or two ago. He was talking about it on one of the radio shows.

    new vids form today...

    so weight is up but conditioning is down a bit...
    Do you think that this is a result of the added bodyweight OR a result of not training events for 2 weeks??

    I am guessing... B, not training events. I think once you train for a while (at 330ish) your body will adapt and be just as "conditioned" at the new weight.

    Derek,

    I was wondering how big is your waist? You seem to still have a nice physique with a small waist to go along with your immense power. Most of the guys on the circuit are huge but with big waists and no shape. My other part to this question is do you look this way by choice or is it something you also work at like getting strong. I am trying to climb closer to the 300 mark but I do not want my shape and especially my waist to get out of control. Thanks!

    I think my waist is in the ballpark of 36". As far as staying lean, it was never by choice when I first started getting big into powerlifting and strongman. Growing up my mother was very strick with when and what my brother and I ate. Because of tsuch a clean diet and good genetics, I beleive I have very few fat cells. I cant remember a time in my life went I couldnt see my abs, even at 330 lbs. I've never really been able to put on fat, even when Ive tried. At this point in my life though I actually train to stay in shape. By this I dont mean I try and stay lean, I just try and stay conditioned by doing cardio, high volume sets and super sets. A byproduct of the volume and training I do is I burn so many calories, just maintaiing my weight is very difficult, despite the huge UNO pizza, about 2000 calories, just before bedtime. Its very normal for me to eat such an insane number of calories before bed yet I still say very lean.
