If you were talking to me when you were talking about an "idiot slacker" you could not of been more wrong. I have the upmost respect for Kevin and I am actually a fan of his. Thats why I posted the news not because I would want to "run his name through the mud."

Seems like Nee just tore his biceps - again. I think he should back of a little and save his body for the future.

Could you please tell me what would be your number one exercise for shoulders. In the past they were one of my stronger parts but now the triceps seems to do most of the work when pressing.

p.s.: Keep up the good work with dieting.

You can get very easily fooled when guessing the weight of some equipment made from iron (or anything that looks small to you - it may surprise you). Pipes from which the yoke is made are probably quite thick and the main weight must be at the bottom for stability.
The farmers carry has four big pieces which are quite heavy by the looks of it - 770 pounds easy. Again, don`t underestimate the weight of this equipment, it is made for brute strength not for fitness wannabes.

Mariusz wants another one in 2009:

Dereks response to this statement:

"Now this just upsets me, when have I ever made excusses Brady?? Please do tell! Lets rewind to the first event at Mohegan Sun, remember that? Did I come on here and complain about it? Despite a bad call (we are human after all) I was able to overcome this obsticle and win the contest.

On that note I will go on to say that I was not Mariusz's biggest fan after the way he so graciously lost at Mohegan Sun. He left prior to signing autographs while the rest of the competitors sat there for over an hour when we were all starving, sweaty and generally not in the mood. But we did this for our love for the fans, like you. After MSG and WSM 08, I have a entire new respect for the man. When I got to spend a little time with him, I soon realized he is a nice guy. I've heard a lot of people critisize Mariusz thinking he is rude or full of himself. I'm quick to say that he is not these things and actually a nice guy. THat being said, I too am a Mariusz fan and nearly lost respect for him due to one incident. We in society tend to focus on the negative, I don not. Mariusz is a great champion and benifitted from a mistake on my part. We see this in all sports but a win is a win, no matter how it comes.

I am very excited that Mariusz is going to compete in 09, now lets get him to the Arnold, Fortissimus and possibly Mohegan Sun too!!!"

Well there is another way to improve your power clean if you dont practice it a lot...

Any time you are doing standing front presses you can clean the weight first or you can combine cleans with presses.

I like to do a combination of presses and push presses so that the final weight is also heavier to clean.

This year was something of a mini-milestone for me marking the 35th year I have covered the NABBA Universe. There were a record number of competitors this time with 151 competing in 12 different classes. The quality was unbelievable. For those interested in statistics, this is how is stacked up.

Masters over 40’s 12 competitors
Masters over 50’s 12 competitors
Juniors 8 competitors
Miss Figure Class 2 22 competitors
Miss Figure Class 1 10 competitors
Miss Physique 9 competitors
Miss Fitness 6 competitors
Mr Class 4 14 competitors
Mr Class 3 16 competitors
Mr Class 2 19 competitors
Mr Class 1 17 competitors
Pro-Am 6 competitors

Now to a few comments as I recall some of the highlights. When we edit the 10 hours of material I shot into 3 or 4 DVDs, a more detailed description of each DVD will be given.


In the Masters Over 40’s my old friend BRIAN PETERS of Wales, UK was a clear and convincing winner over JAMES MURAYAMA of Brazil. Then followed the Masters Over 50’s won by JOHN CITRONE in his 45th year of physique competition. He has now won every possible NABBA title and this time had a large margin over 2nd placed EARL MADURO of Holland.

Next up was the JUNIOR MEN’S CLASS and what a sensational class it was. 8 outstanding juniors took to the stage with one absolute stand out. I refer to the Welsh Wizard of Mature Muscle – JAMES ‘FLEX’ LEWIS. He was the only competitor in the whole Amateur Universe to receive straight firsts from every judge.

He had size, symmetry and condition, and a physique which would not have been out of place in open Class 4. From his huge calves, shredded condition to his superb posing routine, this young guy displayed pure class. Mark him down as a pro bodybuilder of the future.

Runner up was the most impressive JARRAD GRADWELL of South Africa.

Mr. Class 4 is for the shortest guys up to 5’6” but it was not short on quality or competitors. Brazil’s CHARLES MARIO narrowly took this class with his mature symmetry from France’s young rising star DAVID DAHAN. David did himself no favours by posing in the poor light in front of the posing platform. On the platform the lighting was optimised. But David is a winner of the future. A massive and ripped JASON CORRICK took a well-deserved 3rd place.

Mr. Class 3 was STEPH SINTON’S class as he got straight firsts from every judge bar one who placed him second. Steph, formerly known as Steve had a near faultless physique, looking superb in every possible way both from the front and from the rear. Wonderful condition, balance in all areas and a large amount of hard mature muscle added up to a most convincing package.

In second place was Holland’s KHALID ALMOHSENAWE with his rugged physique and huge arms.

Mr. Class 2 saw a titanic battle between former Mr. World winner GIUSEPPE COZZI of Italy and the Brazilian champion GERSON GUIMARAES. When the dust had settled it was a 1-point victory to the Italian. Giuseppe displayed a fantastic back, great condition and overall size such that he looked the likely winner during most of the comparisons. Gerson was probably a little unlucky to lose such a close decision and his fantastic physique is sure to be rewarded with a class victory in the future.

Mr. Class 1 is the big boys class! It was a superb victory from GREGOR KOMAN of Slovenia in what was a first ever NABBA Universe title for SLOVENIA. Gregor won it on his overall symmetry and good V-shape and size. Runner up GINO BARRIOS of Holland displayed fantastic condition, wonderful abs and the best “most muscular” in the competition. But where he lost out to Koman was in arms and “lats”. I feel that if Gino can improve these 2 areas, he will be an overall Amateur Mr. Universe winner as he has such fantastic potential.

1976 Olympic Shot Put gold at 20 years of age

Many athletes seize their moment of glory when another more credentialed athlete performs well below par. As a twenty-year old, Udo Beyer won the Shot Put at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games when five much more mature athletes threw well below their seasonal bests. In fact, Beyer nearly didn't make it to the Olympics at all, having only been included in the East German team at the last minute. Udo's best throw (and personal best) for the 1976 season prior to the Olympics was 21.12m, whereas five other athletes had seasonal bests over 21.50m, including Alexsandr Baryshnikov (Soviet Union), who had set a new world record of 22.00m only two weeks before the Olympics. Indeed, Baryshnikov confirmed his status as gold medal favourite at Montreal when he threw 21.32m to set a new Olympic record in the qualifying round on 23 July. However, in the final the next day, none of the top throwers could get anywhere near their previous bests except the young Beyer, who threw 21.05m (see photo above) to narrowly win the gold medal. This signalled the start of a decade of dominance in the event by Beyer. In 1978, he broke the world record for the first time, throwing 22.15m at Gothenburg on 6 July. He produced the top 11 throws in the world that year, and easily won the European title at Prague on 1 September with a throw of 21.08m. In 1980, he produced the longest five throws of the year, and it seemed a mere formality that he would successfully defend his Olympic title at Moscow. However, Udo was somewhat below par on the day of the final, and finished a surprising third. It was later revealed that he had pulled a back muscle

Some posts:

Snatch info, hang snatch e.german style, from hip with a deep split-190kg, 1rmax Squat 45okg, all the rest already detailed above.

Best Standing throw of him: 21,94m at the warm up before his 22,64m-competion.

He told me, he did in bench press 4x295kg

I met the great Bill Kazmaier in Birmingham, England in about 1988, when Bill was still competing in the worlds strongest man.

He mentioned that the competition would be open to "eastern bloc" athletes and I remeber telling him about Beyer and how if anyone could beat Bill it maybe Beyer.

Udo owns a travel agency in potsdam. he isn´t working as coach, but training for itself - but i think, he don´t do strength training anymore. he told me, in his last years vacation, he did nearly 1000km by bicycle.

one story about him: a few days before the world championship in rome he broke a bar there in bench press training...
One story I heard about Udo Beyer was before the 1980 Olympics in Moscow he was in the weights room.

Geoff capes was dowing squats onto a bench for reps with about 500 lbs.

The story i heard was that after Geoff had finished Udo Beyer came in and without a warm up squated into the bench and then pushed 500 lbs behind his neck. as everyone looked in awe he did it again.

I dont know how much he would do if he had warmed up at his peak but I would presume about 550 lbs.

I heard this story from someone who was told by geoff capes himself.

660 was the max, done for 10 singles

The 660lbs were push presses, using his legs, when he pressed the 500lbs X 2 he was seated, obviously a big difference.

Well since you know/knew so many people I was wondering if you ever met Udo Beyer or if you have any good stories about him.

For some information here are some lifts that he made:

Also read through the posts there are some unbelievable numbers posted...

You can all look for some throwing videos of him and see for yourself that he has to have a lot more then just a good (super) bench press to throw far:

That makes him even more impressive in my opinion.

Here is also a link to a page with previously mentioned Randy Barnes and his bench press max video:
