Video was awesome
Sam Whyman says
why do you use a barbell for the grip and not a dumbbell is it just because
dumbbells don’t go heavy enough
Gottfried Osterbach says
This is pure gold for powerlifters. You can tell even guys like Mark who
have over two decades of experience are learning. I am sure that likely is
true because even in recent videos now and then I still see Mark and Mike
use some of what Coan covers here. That isn’t true of every person I see on
here as they always seem to have fun, but often just play with their peers
rather than this which was practically a seminar.
justin mackey says
That grip exercise looks awesome, should that be done with back after all
of the heavy deadlifts or another day when your grip hasn’t been strained
Suroth Miah says
what edd can don’t know about powerlifting ain’t worth knowing the pioneer
of the sport untouchable in his days and pound for pound by far the
strongest in the game .have you seen his 180kg shoulder press unbelievable
one way to summon him up .the greatest power lifter ever no holds barred
the man squats300 kg raw to this day who says little man can’t lift he’s in
the land of the giants I grew up watching edd that’s what got me in to
power lifting Edd’s a legend and as made his mark in the sport god bless

Adam Furnier says
I would absolutely love to work out for a day with Mr. Coan. He’s an
absolute wealth of knowledge.
Johnny Rich says

How do I get these shirts
Bilal Syed says
Ricardo Zavala says
This intro was amazing even the song is just inspirational
Wow marks face is so much less bloated here
joe schofield says
Mike looks like a little baby mouse
With the SL Deads it seems like the bar is too far away from his shins and
his lower back is rounded as fuck. Is this proper form?
“Compared to a 15 year old fat girl”. You just got roasted
Mark Chaillet used to do an assistance exercise called High Pulls. Any of
you guys ever do any of those. Mark used to have this motto, If you want
your Deads to go up, Deadlift! LOL
Jamal Joudeh says
Who in hell disliked this video? Ed Coan is not only pound for pound the
best powerlifter of all time, but he is also a very sympathetic, humble
Mason Pikey says
SILENT MIKE HOLY SHIT DOES HE LOOK DIFFERENT
Jack Dowd says
why are his hands so disproportionately big? no troll, but is it because of
the growth hormones and such?
Dagan Williams says
I have learned more about lifting from these guys and this series than i
have from my high school weight room and 10 yrs in a commercial gym. When i
need gear I usually buy it from them because of that. Just wan to say
thanks, you guys do a lot for the community.
Steven Werner says
i love the way Ed just lays it out
