    These are the most impressive curls I've seen on youtube. The form is perfect. Anybody here come close to being able to curl this much weight with the same form?

    Looks like he should be using that squat rack for actual squats.

    If the dude wasn't legit throwing up the most impressive form + weight I've seen, I'd agree.

    Yeah but can he do triceps extensions with the whole stack? You need versatility as an athlete

    I used to curl 185 with decent form back in the day. No wonder my elbows are an arthritic mess now.

    Leeman also weighs 350 and is juiced to the gills. Complete with soccer ball head and acne scars.

    Do you know how many people use steroids and will never come close to the strength of George Leeman?

    Pro tip: Check the video in the OP.

    Straight bar curls are horrible for your elbows.

    I thought this thread was going to be about a 155 lb guy curling 135 lb.

    There's a HUGE difference when doing them that stict between 150+lbs and 100lbs. There's other videos of BIG mofos that end up working out with Tommy and one of the main points of their videos is how this guy is using their strict curl weight for a warm up. He also does 80 lb dumbbells for skullcrushers easily.

    A lot of people that see these videos may also make the mistake of not realizing the form he's using and think they are doing weight close to him with the same form but they're using momentum.

    This forum has taken such a nosedive in recent years. I remember when this was a place for serious training and when threads like this would have got nuked by the mods in minutes. How far we've fallen.

    And I'll just leave this here. Magnus Samuelsson curling 308lbsx4 with fairly strict form:
