    I don't normally post stuff like this but I saw this video on Marunde's forum and was impressed with how John Cena lifts weights. The video shows squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, among other things.

    5 plates atg? was that right on my count? 495

    "deadlifts a hard lift that noone likes to do"

    benchpress: everyone likes to be meatheads "how much do you bench" haha

    Roids + heavy compounds ftw nice to see a proper workout from a roid'd dude however, not these Iron Mag shite with 20 sets of arms ala ronnie coleman.

    It is really nice to see someone so famous doing some real lifts with real weight. Even if he is on the juice, it can't hurt the cause having him squatting below parallel and deadlifting.

    Those are some very respectable numbers. He was doing all that shit for reps.

    I hope you know that Ronnie Coleman doesn't actually do those workouts they say he does in the magazine. Saying a big time pro does a certain routine is just a magazine's way of trying legitimatize their bullshit.

    BTW, nice video, OP. I enjoy seeing genetically gifted people that capitalize on their potential.

    Hahahahahaha true i prefer no one care about squats or they think they are not safe to do without a smith machine.

    Squat rack is usually the one spot you can always rely on to be empty in the gym.

    I searched for Cena and didn't see it, but searching for Cena right now doesn't bring this thread up, either. Do you know if this aired on TV?
     
  18. can anyone elaborate on the chains?

    As the bar goes up, the chain comes off the floor and increases the load you are lifting. It's called accommodating resistance.
