From the “Somewhere in China there’s a little girl warming up with your max” folder. Here is rep 3 of a 130kg back squat triple by 14 yo Luo Xiaoling (58kg). She did multiple sets at this weight in China’s National Training Base aka ‘Champion Factory’. This was during her afternoon session, she had snatched, deadlifted, and pulled in the morning session.
I give up.
Nothing makes more mad than when people post videos/pics of women lifting with “SHE IS STRONGER THAN YOU” or “SHE WARMS UP WITH YOUR MAX”. While they aren’t directly targeting those comments to men, that’s clearly the intention.
Why cant this girl just be strong?
She is not anywhere near my max but that doesn’t fucking matter because holy shit she’s strong.
Lydia Valentin recently snatched 130kg and cleaned 160kg. Both of those are over my max. So am I supposed to feel emasculated because an Olympian can out-lift me, just cuz she’s a woman? Cuz I don’t.
Also guys check out Lydia Valentin as she is about to break some world records.
now this is awesome, and the speed is incredibly impressive, but im almost certain the last three were not to depth. perhaps with a view from the side you’d be able to tell better, but they looked high.
His 965 looks to parallel. JP admits he was about an inch or so high on the 1016. Team Lilliebridge has a lot of lifters to accommodate and they squat very slow so sometimes there is 20-40 minutes between attempts. Fully rested, he’s got it easy. Does not take away from it at all.
oh absolutely, im not suggesting that because his squat was, perhaps, a bit high that that takes away from the accomplishment. With that speed, I have no doubt he’d also hit it to depth. Outstandingly impressive.
