    Quoted for truth.

    Perfect example is this guy:

    DJ is quickly surpassing Kurt Warner for best potential UNI career wasted. Sickening.

    Just having a discussion about it. Isn't that what this for? Or do we just discuss what's important to you 1988?

    Why is it so important to you??

    the 460 clean was actually never talked about on here by David, if you go back someone said the record is 460 by a kid named Fiacco, an Iowa State Transfer O Lineman that never panned out. He did go on to a career in competitive weight lifting after graduation however.

    There is also a video I have seen somewhere of David squatting 585 seven times. I'm not sure why you have such a disdain toward David, he is an amazing young man and the most world class athlete you will ever stand face to face with in your life. Is he just not that good of an athlete to you because he doesn't wear a Hawkeye jersey or what? I don't even know what Olympic lifts are other than dead lift, snatch, or power clean. What should an Olympian be cleaning if they weigh 225 oh wise one? David falls in the 206-231 weight class, the Olympic record is a little over 500 lbs, the best of ALL Time, I know David can do over 400 and has never trained to be a weighlifter...

    There is a video of a 365lb power clean x 3 on his FB page.

    Most lifters power clean about 80% of their full clean.

    There is also a video of a 565lb squat x 3 on his FB page.

    Here is a video of DJ bench pressing 315 ten times.

    This was done after a hard workout.

    Claiming someone is a world class weightlifter when there is hard evidence of such plastered all over the internet is the opposite of Kool Aid drinking.

    In fact, denying such facts makes you ignorant at best and a conspiracy theorist at worst.

    So many totally immature thoughts...
