Lilliebridge would be the only challenge at 275. I cant see him cutting for that, unless it is for the all time total record. Now lifting at 275 in gear would be a lot deeper. I can honestly say I appreciate the fact that he is very good at both gear and raw. He out totaled my single ply total (3rd in the US last year) raw! Which to me only shows what I have said the whole time, to get stronger in gear, you just have to get STRONGER! Making your gear tighter doesnt mean you got stronger, just means you will prob bomb out. I am not bashing gear lifting, as I am a gear whore, but if more people were like Brandon in our sport we would be better off.
I have spent a good bit of time working on a training method/ebook, and I am buying a copy of the cube method. You can never stop learning!
