    I'm pretty good at front-flips where I land on my face.

    BIG SHANE!!!Thanks for that Brad that is great. I can't believe he's a trader and is training in Tulsa.

    Don't have time to watch part 2 now. Will do it later.

    I've told this story before, but you newer fellas can get bored by it now.

    OKC is becoming a big rowing center. A group of international Olympic rowers were here for something. For some reason they came to my younger sons school (4th grade at the time) to promote rowing. For some reason Shane accompanied them there. After the rowing talk the kids flocked the rowers to get autographs. My son went straight to Shane . He was the only kid that asked him for his autograph. None of the other kids understood why my son went to Shane. My son still has his autograph on his bulletin board.

    360 pounds and can do 5 consecutive back flips.

    Can't wait to see part 2.

    In case some of you don't know whop Shane is, by one criteria is is the strongest man in the world. If you take his PL total and add it to his OL total he would be the highest all-time strength athlete.

    I like near the end of Part 1 when he described bending the bar in a contest. Now that's incredible!! They don't use cheapo bars there.

    This wasn't the lift, but I think it gives an idea why the bar was bent. It'd be incredible to measure his peak applied force with that explosion.

    Some words come to mind: "sir", "hoss", "big'un" and "sure, Shane, you can have the power rack, just lemme finish my curls".

    Hoss is appropriate.
