    "Becca Swanson did a great exhibition for the crowd/fans, with a double overhand grip she pulled 550 for 10 reps. I was under the assumption she was gonna pull it for a triple, but when she got to third rep (as the crowd counted/screamed)she kept pulling and pulling."


    "Not a hook grip, just double overhand. Becca did not use straps, her grip was solid, she even held the last rep for a few extra seconds while the crowd screamed. I felt 550 for a triple was impressive, then she just kept pulling. Becca now has hundreds of hoosier fans! If anyone would like to witness the lift, the dvd will be ready soon."

    I can't take anymore Becca Swanson.

    It would be really weird for me to have a girlfriend stronger than me. The very idea makes me quiver with unease.

    Why does every topic concerning Becca Swanson get a bunch of retarded posts.


    Its an awesome feat, especially with the grip she used.
     
  10. Because caller her a woman is like calling Elton John a man.

    Don't get me wrong, no matter whether she is on or not, that's a hell of an impressive feat.

    Madmick, we are all in agreement that what she did is an impressive feat, but so is the number of needles she shoves in her ass on a weekly basis, most would consider that an impressive feat also.

    What happened to all the HAWDCAW lifters here?
    Are you ressenting the fact that you've been outlifted by a gurl?
    People went crazy when someone called shit like that on Benni's deadlift.
    Is she on? That question should not even be asked. Look at that sick, sick, sick feat!!! Of course she's fucking on!!!

    Now to a different question:
    Would I hit it? No, I would be too afraid that she might hit back.

    Heck, I'm sure there are plenty of women who aren't on any gear who could outlift me. I think the problem in being overly impressed by it stems from the fact that it is largely impressive because it is being performed by a woman. But then when you realize she has higher test levels than any two of us combined you start to hold her to the standards of a man.

    Now if this were some regular guy poster who I 'knew' from Sherdog I'd be impressed. But for being performed by some anonymous guy on the net... several notches less impressive.

    I look at it this way. If the feats on say 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon' were all performed without wires we'd be amazed. Add in the wires and special effects and we're only mildly amused. The, "there's no way in hell I could ever do that" factor is considerably reduced.

    But hey, maybe that's just sour grapes from a weakling like myself.

    Dude, I called her the sphinx of hormone therapy (a woman's body on a man's head...in case you didn't get it).

    Talk to Gruesome. I was reconciling with him. I was just trying to say: I'm scared, not jealous.

    Wow, I'm sorry and ashamed to admit that I did not get it at first. Now that I do get it (after a thorough explination and several hundred times of having it repeated to me) I find it very clever. Nice job, chap.
