Poundstone is what I would love to become. I want to be able to deadlift like this.

Derek Poundstone curls 160x30 Bros vs Pros 9 - YouTube
I was just in that gym last saturday for a strongman comp that I was loading at. He signed the 660lb atlas stone. I was told he tried to lap it and almost got it.
