This is great. I'm pumped to see them go head to head, even though it's not happening (yet). Powerlifting probably won't ever be mainstream, but it's stuff like this that adds some excitement and fun that might appeal to a larger audience.

Lol, he is a beast to be sure! Needs a little work on his acting skills, but good stuff!
Does anyone have his contact information?
Haha, that was great
That was an awesome video, looks like a really cool guy to be around/train with

I love the music playing in the background, classic. And I agree that it is challenges like this that will bring the most attention to powerlifting. Once people start caring about who is the strongest person, not just the most sculpted, powerlifting automatically gains new fans and participants.
SOLI DEO GLORIA!
that's awesome. ahahah.
I was talking about him the otherday with a strongman, and the guy was just in awe of him. Respect!
Haha awesome video. I think stuff like this is great for the sport.
Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

When Stan's squatting, what's that contraption they're using? Is that the monolift I've seen referenced here and there? Whatever it is, it's pretty neat looking.

Yes, that contraption is a monolift.
i live in sacramento, and have seen stan lift in person. i have NEVER seen someone as strong as stan. EVER.
You know why this is great for the sport? Because it shows powerlifting for what it truly is: the greatest pissing contest in the history of mankind. Every die hard powerlifter from the greatest pro to the average chump lifts so he can beat someone else. You might squat, bench and pull like a mother****er in your garage, but you're not a powerlifter till you get on that platform and put it on the line to see if you can beat someone. It's a shame feuds and competition seems to be between feds and judges these days. They don't produce anything but bad blood and egos. Feuds and competition between lifters breed numbers that make our balls drop. Well at least those are my $0.02.
"Los numeros hablan por si solo!" = "Numbers speak for themselves."
Sob, I have no clue what you are trying to say there???
I'm just trying to say that I find refreshing to have a lifter call out another lifter and actually demand competition. That's what a sport is about, competing against out athletes to win. In powerlifting you win by proving you were a stronger lifter the day of the meet. I think that attitude is only held by a few lifters, while the overall discourse revolves around inter federation feuds instead of lifters beating each other.
HAH! I love it! That was great. It will be interesting to see how johnny responds to this.

AKA The Rhyno, no ****ing ****, that guy is huge. Really cool video .
Very strong guy, no doubt about that. It seemed like he was calling out Ronnie Coleman more than Johnnie or Ben White though - those were the videos that he was comparing himself to (other than the deadlift).
I've never heard of Ben White up until this contest, but people have said that he has a huge RAW bench as well.
Being that Ronnie has achieved so much more in bodybuilding than Stan I don't know that it is fair to compare the two, and Ronnie was definitely stronger in some lifts that he did not show. I am stronger than Arnold, Franco, Zane, and other legendary bodybuilders - but I would't call them out. Bodybuilders train for the look, and Johnnie also appears to have a more impressive physique than Stan does despite being a respectable powerlifter.
Stan has a good mix of strength / size, but to me it appears that he is more of a powerlifter turned bodybuilder. Since he can't hang with some of the top guys on the bodybuilding stage (hypothetically) he has decided to call them out in another sport. It would be like me saying that I am the strongest chess playing strongman, it is adding in an unrelated variable.
I like his confidence and he is definitely one of the strongest raw lifters that I have seen... looking forward to seeing what kind of numbers Stan posts in the meet. He is definitely making a name for himself out there which I am sure is the overall objective.
