Natural and no suit? I doubt anybody gets that thousand bucks.

That is a weird pic.

On the 1,000 lbs squat challenge... I think the guys $1K is safe. He wants a drug test, no suit, start from the bottom posistion, etc. Other than the drug test, my friend (he's gone now, but when he was here) Lee Moran might have been able to pull it off. He was extremely strong on his rack work and might have given it a try.

Lee was a beast didn't he also bench 600+ i remember reading about him in Milo and supposedly he was really strong on shoulder presses too.

S-

Lee's pressing strenght was crazy. At Iron Island Gym in Alameda, I stood 10 feet away from him went he did 365 x 8 in the standing push press. What was so funny was the fact that at the time Sonny Barger (Hells Angels Maximum Leader) was using the weight for squats. Lee was making fun of him and walked over cold, grabbed the weight and did the reps! He was EXTREMELY strong in all pressing movements.

How is he going to send someone to verify the lift? Sounds like a bullshit challenge to me.
