Title: HEADS UP.....
Post by: claymore on August 02, 2012, 03:19:41 AM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZLCJLRdM2k Jon Cole who is one of the most SAVAGE humans to ever step under or stand over any bar will be retired as the all time 275 strongest RAW lifter in the world come NOVEMBER  ;) Jon's 308 record is pretty good for the time being...hell probably for awhile LOL, but his 275 record is going DOWN !!! My boy's on one right now !! For those who don't know cole's record was set 1972  :o and hasn't been beaten since. The numbers to beat his record of 2250 are something like this:

Squat: Stan did a 854 without knee wraps, this time with knee wraps we're looking at somewhere in the range of 875+
Bench: Stan has done a 606, if he does a 606 again he'll be fine
Deadlift: Stan has pulled a 794 raw in a meet, but as you can see he makes 765 look like childs play, we've changed a couple of things with his deadlifts and his numbers have improved very nicely ;)

So if all those numbers add up right that's 2280, beating coles number by 30lbs.

But we're shooting for a 2300 total !!!

879 squat with knee wraps
617 bench
804 deadlift = 2300lbs RAW

I'll be updating you guys with progress and some new videos. Forgot to mention that video was shot while stan had a nasty sinus infection and hadn't trained in about a week.

well the week off did his cns good and helped his muscle recover so no big deal there. I bet stan will squat over 900 w/wraps. I wish stan the best in his effort.

Still an impressive lift. :)

We're just testing the waters right now, we still got 11 weeks until the meet. No reason this far out to stress the joints.

Gotcha. He should be able to up his total if his squat and bench hold up.

UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!! Stan and I have invited KK (Konstantin Konstantinovs) to this meet, we'll pay for all exp. and throw him some $CASH$ If anyone knows KK on a personal level tell him to get ahold of us.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLZQ4SQ1qj0 Just wanted to update you guys on our training, we just got back from San Jose and would like to thank the guys over at wildirongym for letting us use there facility Saturday...thanks guys !! we really appreciate it !! We did two sets, this video was the second set with 715 x 3. Right now we're just working on speed and balance. This week we'll take off completely and then next week Stan and I will travel to Sacramento to train with Mark Bell, I'll definitely get some more videos of that workout for you guys.

Post by: claymore on August 28, 2012, 11:12:57 PM
My boy hit a 695 like it was nothing last night !!!!! He had a double, but one of our friends jumped in to soon and thought he was done and grabbed the bar which threw Eric out of his groove. If I'd been there to spot him he would've definitely hit it for a double !!! But Stan and I left early to go eat.

That spotter should be beaten. Terrible spotter, how could he trust someone like that when he has that much weight on the bar?

Alex is a good dude, like I said Stan and I left to go eat. If I'd been there to spot "E" like I normally do, he would've hit a double no problem !!!!!

agreed

and only one spotter with that much weight on the bar ???

i remember a few times when some dudes would be working with 550-600 on the bar and they've have 3 spotters, one behind, and one on each side of the bar

of course this was some shirt work, and not un-equiped like this beast :o :o :o

He may be a good dude but he needs a lesson in spotter etiquette.

Post by: claymore on September 02, 2012, 02:35:46 PM
Just got back from Sacramento with Stan, we had a great training session Saturday!!!! Stan hit a PR with an easy 815 deadlift, also did some squats 600 with bands...600 on the bottom, 800 on the top did 2-3 sets 3reps each set extremely easy !!! Also Dan Green trained with us and had a big day as well pulled an 815 also. Thanks as always to Mark Bell and all the guys at SuperTraining!! Will be posting more vids in the following weeks for all you guys, also just found out Stan, Myself and Eric Spoto will be working out at the "ANIMAL" cage this year at the Olympia. I'll let you guys know what day we'll be there.

Just wanted to up-date you guys, we squatted today I'll put the video up in the next few days. I think Stan did an 805 ?? whatever it was it came up like nothing !!! He had at least an 840 in him today. We had to rig up a make shift monolift and there were some minor complications, but all in all great day !!

how do you dudes train the bench?

do you train it twice weekly, with a chest focus day and a tri focus day (lockouts, floor presses, JM presses, etc) or do you train it just once a week?

We'll go heavy one week, then the follwing chest workout is with bands...speed work. We just alternate back and fourth. We do some other stuff like pause training, JM's, floor presses every now and then but nothing to complicated, we have a really good crew that pushes each other really hard !!! I'll be honest the minute Stan, Eric Spoto and Myself started to train with each other we all started hitting PR's left and right lol. Your only as good as your team !!!!

Just got back a couple of hours ago with Stan from Sacramento and all I can say is WOW !!!!!! We had a great squat session saturday with Mark Bell Stan hit a PR of 865  :o :o :o I wish I could take credit but it was Mark's idea to add 10lbs to the bar, Stan thought he had around 850 on the bar, he had 855, but Mark approached me and asked what I thought about pushing Stan a little harder for this last lift and I agreed I'd put 5lbs on each side real quick while he wasn't looking. It's just what my boy needed !!!! Thanks again Mark for pushing us !!! we needed to turn it up a notch.

Just wanted to give you guys another up-date, once again this friday Stan and I will be returning to Sacramento to train with Mark and the boys at "ST" We'll be squatting and it's about that time gentleman to start turning it up !!!! We had a very good chest workout last night, Spoto hit a 660 + bands (50lbs of resistance at the top) so 710 at the top, he smoked it !!!! I asked him why it came up so fast and he said " Cause I wanted that shit off of me" LOL Stan hit an easy 585. Saturday morning is "D" day I'll post the video sometime sunday or monday.

Today was our last big PULL day before the Nov.3rd meet in Sacramento. Stan pulled an 815 rather easy without knee wraps. He should be good for around an 835-837 come meet day. I'll keep you guys updated on our monday chest workout, he should hit a 585x2. Everything is looking and feeling good !!!! Also Eric Spoto has his day right around the corner Oct.20th so I'll be up-dating you with that info as well.


Title: Re: HEADS UP.....
Post by: claymore on October 15, 2012, 09:47:46 PM
Today was our last big bench day until the meet and Stan SMOKED!!!! a 585 and hit a 605 pretty easy, Eric is five days out from his first meet as well. I'll keep you guys up-dated.

Title: Re: HEADS UP.....
Post by: claymore on October 16, 2012, 04:02:07 PM
Stan does, 275 weight class. It depends Eric I have taking off about 8 days beforew his meet. Stan and I will see the closer we get to Nov.3rd. As of right now we've had our last BIG pull day and CHEST day, but we still got one more squat workout this saturday. After that we'll probably just relax, eat, and sleep our asses off !!! LOL

Post by: claymore on November 03, 2012, 11:14:45 PM
We timed warmup wrong, passed on first attempt then the second he got off balance, third one was Awesome!!!! Out of the whole, but lost balance again and fail forward  :(

Post by: EatYouForBreakfast on November 04, 2012, 05:35:10 AM
Thats too bad man, that 3rd attempt was looking powerfull. The most impressive thing is the size of Eric Spoto, jesus christ hes a freight train. Too bad for him as well, he definitly has those numbers in him also just not his day i guess, great performance.

Title: Re: HEADS UP.....
Post by: claymore on November 05, 2012, 12:51:45 PM
Clay what weight did Eric miss?

716.2 First two attempts he was way off !!! His set up was all wrong, the third was perfect but he was shot by then.


Just wanted to say thanks to all the support given to us and we're very sorry that things went they way they did.....now on to the good news. WE"RE COMING BACK HARD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We're gonna take a little break and just rest a little and then it's on with everything we got !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stan and Eric have never felt that feeling of failure and all it's gonna do is push us that much harder to do what we set out to do 14 weeks ago. We timed warmup wrong as **** for Stan, his last set was 700 for squat and then we jumped all the way to 903 (Terrible Move) we wanted to do an 800, 850-875, 903 but the two hundred and three pound jump was just not a good move....it won't happen again !!!!!! Eric was there all day and should've not come until it was time for him to bench, the third bench was perfect but he was shot after the first two attempts. We're extremely sorry to everyone that drove down to see history in the making, but make no mistake....We're not through !!!!!!!!!!! On a lighter note it was great to meet the whole Lilliebridge posse they travel at least 10-12 deeeeep lol We got something in the making with them out in there neck of the woods so keep your ears tuned. Air Hickson is by far the fastest puller in the WORLD !!!!!!!!! his speed is unreal, Stan and I sat and watched all of them warming up for deads and everyones style is so different, but Hickson is just unreal with his speed. Pete Rubish, what can I say he lived up to what he's famous for....INTENSITY !!!!! like no other, that guy has no stop in him !!!! Hit a PR in the squat and almost blacked out lol. Brent Willis floor speed is BONKERS ???? Brent had a great day, set a PR in the bench and pulled very well. Vince Urbank, landed on the 3rd came straight from airport to ST and pulled lol who does that ??? last but defnitely not least "Babyslayer" I was standing 2 ft. from him when he pulled that 865 and he had it locked out and the speed was great as well, but his hands just fell apart. George if your reading this....Once we figure out the hand thing, you've got a 900lb pull in you !!!!!!!....I'll keep you guys updated with training for the next meet.

Just to let everyone know our videos of the next couple of months won't be crazy heavy...but it'll take you guys into the deloading phase and show you some of our other movements we're gonna start adding before we start training really heavy again. We gonna be training at a new facility that is AWESOME!!!! and we'll be doing some basic compound movements with some bodybuilding stuff thrown in as well for the next few months, give our bodies a little break before getting serious again.

Stan “Rhino” Efferding is one of the most accomplished strength athletes in the world, reaching the highest level of prominence in both bodybuilding and powerlifting. The IFBB Pro from the Pacific Northwest boasts the title of World’s Strongest Bodybuilder as he holds 2 all-time powerlifting world records--854 lb squat with no knee wraps and a ridiculous 2226 lb raw total. Taking strength competition to the far limits, the 45 year old Rhino will be making his charge at a world record 2300 lb raw total just weeks after the Arnold. When asked about his planned exploits this year in The Cage, Big Stan responded, “I chose this event because it’s probably the last opportunity I will have to put up some huge squats with Eric Lilliebridge (22 year old powerlifting phenom) before I retire from powerlifting.” Come to Booth #419 at the Arnold Expo and witness history once again on Saturday, March 2nd at 2:30pm.

We pulled this morning, Stan hit an easy 705 & then 771. The 771 was harder than normal, we were using our new chrome kilo plates. I'll have the video up within the next day or so.

Update...Stan hit a PR today at a much lighter bodyweight. He hit a 725 for 3 and a 745 for 1 at a bodyweight of 250ish. The video should be up soon.

Another Update...Stan and I flew in that russian kid Oleskii, the one that has pulled 804 x 4, 837 x 3, 859 x 2, 881 x 1 at a bodyweight of around 230  :o so we had a deadlift party this morning and Stan hit another PR 747 x 3 at a bodyweight of 250ish. he had a fourth for sure but got a little excited and dropped the weight lol. Stan has always screamed when deadlifting and today we worked on holding our breath and keeping that compression off the floor...IT WORKED !!!! Video should be up in the next few days.
