Nope...it was not you.


Doug Furnace works for the small town of Commerce, Oklahoma.  He supervises the towns water and road crews.  Weights about 190, never talks about the wrestling days as he is ashamed of it.  He plays politics now, so not the guy he use to be, thats for sure.  Call the town of Commerce, Oklahoma for proof if you need it.

Dear moderator, there was a question asked about what happened to Doug Furnas? 
Someone very uninformed said years of drug dude that is what got him! Well I am

when people write things they can have no idea about but just for a small amount
of time they feel as thought people are actually listing to what they have to
say.  to those who care i am doing fine and the group homes I have for abused

i know it man. I have been an absolute turd.


Feels really good to be back in though. first month was boring as hell.


If I cared what I looked like a little more it wouldnt have been so bad. I just wanted to touch some weight, but was too weak to do it. So it was definitely boring. Feelin good again though.

Yeah....the first few weeks back always suck. The weights and movements feel stale...but once you get back in the groove....Its on!

I wrap mine when I go over 405. That is when my wrists start to hurt.

doesn't take balls when you know you can do it, I had done it for 4 reps earlier in the week...only did it a second time to try and get it on tape.

lol...even if I know I can do it, I still like the spotters....just in case! Impressive lift none the less.  At what meet are you going to attempt to break the record?

The link worked for me...Nick you got balls to do that with out spotters on the side!
9  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Tiny Meeker Breaks the all time single ply record again!!! on: August 13, 2006, 10:16:32 AM
That's a LIFT!!!

I was actually expecting Tiny to resort to a clown lift like those WPO/WPC/APF clowns, with no proper stop at the chest, but he did a real stop.

Tiny is without a doubt the best untested benchpresser in the world right now.

Nobody else is even close. I've yet to see a good lift from either Mendy or Kennely.

YIP
Zack

It looks like he is finally back! I know for a long time he was bombing on all his lifts. Its good to see him hit that weight!
10  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Tiny Meeker Breaks the all time single ply record again!!! on: August 13, 2006, 09:21:57 AM
Below is a quote I got off of MM fourm. Dont start that shirt vs raw crap. Nobody cares about that...this is about Tiny breaking a record and setting a new pr.....

"Just a few weeks ago Mike Womack broke Tiny's Single Ply record of 870 by posting a 871 bench. Tiny left no doubt who the best bencher on the planet is today with 901 lbs in a single ply rage-x. He missed 948 becasue he missed touching by a 1/2 inch. and then went on to try 1010 and missed it a little more than half way up. Tiny just sent me the video. Amazing power. The speed that the bar went up was phenominal. He made it look like a warm up. They made him hold the lockout for about 3 seconds. Which is great becasue now none of the internet flamers can say he wasn't locked or anything else this one. Over 500 people got to see Tiny be the first Human on the planet go 900+ . Congratulations Tiny. For those of you that would like to see the video. You can visit Tiny's new web site which is launching today. I'll post the URL as soon as Tiny gives me the OK."

In a reply to a question on his 948 attempt, Tiny had this to say

"Yes and No. I went to my double, but I didn't want to waist much energy bringing it down, but if realized I was that close I wish I would have brought it down. Basically, you can say I was setting up the shirt for the Big one. I really wanted that 1011. "




Here is a link to his web site with the videos: http://www.benchmastertiny.com/Don%2...%20Scared.html

Did you even try mine? Just curious Smiley

I did....my raw bench is 523 as of last Saturday!
12  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Flat Bench Press on: July 19, 2006, 09:53:10 PM
What is this "bench press" that we are speaking of?  Is it a supplement?

Yes it is a supplement!  Its made by muscletech!
13  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 19, 2006, 08:34:42 PM
If the numbers you offer are accurate, is this the first instance of someone getting 100% more out of a shirt than he can do raw? (435/871?). Is this possible?

This is assumeing that Womack is truthful about his raw max. Who knows?
14  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 19, 2006, 06:00:32 PM
I wasnt talking about you Mike.  There is a thread on Diablo Barbells forum where someone said he looks like 400 pounds of chewed up bubblegum and other nice things.

I started a thread on this topic over on BB.com in the powerlifting section and it has turned into a raw vs shirted flame. They also took a few pot shots at Mike too...but hey, what can you expect from a bunch of e-punks.
15  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 19, 2006, 05:58:26 PM
I thought he was using the Katana?  The craziest thing about this is that he did the meet I was at the week before in Sacramento.  He hit 850 or so.  Mike is a really good guy and I hate the fact that people talk shit about him saying he cant do shit without a shirt.

I am almost 100% sure he was in an F6. He said that he trains in the Katana but is not ready to compete with it yet.
16  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 19, 2006, 05:57:19 PM
Mike is just like all the other big names that show up at meets.  He is very helpful with gear questions and he will even help ya put your shit on if ya ask him. Ask about training, and he tells ya what he does. I have only met one big name that was an ass and he is still an ass to this day. Now Mike Womack......he is class act all the way. I hope to see bigger numbers from him!
17  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 17, 2006, 06:20:27 PM
Hey Liftbig,

 You make me sound like I'm chopped liver Grin

(but hell Wolfy is about to pass his ass up)

LOL...it was more of a shout out to ya!  Besides, we are talking about passing Kennelly up...that is a hell of a feat!
18  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Congrats Wolfy on: July 17, 2006, 06:15:57 PM
Congrats on the lift Mike! Whats the next goal and at what meet?

Who is this John Zemmin? Looks like he came out of no where and hit 830! That is some crazy weight for a 275 pounder.
19  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 17, 2006, 05:58:20 AM
So..he can bench 600 for reps...What has he done in a meet lately? Its not that the no names are passing him up but all the big names are. Kennelly has been going about his training half ass lately and it shows. He needs to step up and bring some big numbers to the table again.
Dont get me wrong, I dont want to take away anything Kennelly has done in the past, but hell Wolfy is about to pass his ass up!
20  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 16, 2006, 08:44:25 PM
that's nuts!

Do you foersee anyone matching or beating him? I bet Kennelly could

Actually Kennelly was there and he had nothing but questions for Mike. And to be honest, Kennelly has not done shit in over a year. Everybody is passing his ass up. Meeker, Womack, Mendelson just to name a few. The problem is that everybody in his camp is kissing his ass. There are only a couple of guys that Kennelly trains with that are willing to tell him like it is. Womack's lift should be a wake up call.
21  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Mike Womack sets new record! on: July 16, 2006, 07:55:45 PM
I just got back from the WABDL meet in Portland OR. Mike Womack hit a 871 in a single ply titan F6. He now has the highest bench in a single ply shirt in any federation.

The crazy part of his lifting is this, he can touch 135 to a one board in the same shirt that he hit a 871.
22  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: Titan Katana on: July 02, 2006, 07:44:11 PM
I picked up a couple of them.  I am a Fury user but I love this new shirt.
23  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Titan Katana on: July 02, 2006, 06:30:21 PM
Anybody try the new titan Katana bench shirt yet?
24  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: lol@house of pain shirts on: July 02, 2006, 05:33:44 PM
Monster Muscle gear is better. I've been sporting my MM sweats non-stop since I got them in the mail

I agree...MM gear is the shit.  Only problem is that they have become such a shitty buisness. I am afraid to order from them and not recieve my order!
25  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Re: This place is like DEAD!!! on: June 28, 2006, 08:59:23 PM
Where the hell has everyone been? Seems like no one post on this forum anymore!!!

 Wolfy!!!!

MM fourm is back up...everybody took off!
