Hang powerclean then :) . For the record the technique in that video is pretty suboptimal.

Suboptimal if you want to move as much weight as possible maybe, but it's a bodybuilding C&P. It's not about strength really.

You're right, I mean suboptimal as far as proper clean technique goes. If it is more or less effective for building muscle I am not really sure, it depends I guess.

Are they afraid of you? I would, if someone, who had as big arms like yours would approach me with a flyer. What flyers you were sharing?

We mostly shared those flyers to mailboxes, that explains the running. I ran for city council of Turku from the Green party. Here's my flyer:

and here's an ad for the internet:

The text says: Kids to the gym and protein to vegetarian food in schools

I got 149 votes, I almost got through as a vice counselor (was the first one who didn't got through from the Green party). My gf did even better and she's now a vice counselor. With the votes I got I will be getting seats in some boards, which is great. I got 6th largest number of votes from all the Green men here in Turku and 2nd largest number of votes of men below 30 years. :boxer: Unfortunately, it's really hard to get through as a man from the list of the Green party since most people who vote for the Greens vote for women only.

My themes were pretty much pro-vegetarian which obviously means that my voters are great people.

The Green party, which is pro-vegetarian became the THIRD largest party in my home city, Turku, with 15,9 % support. Nationwide, we have 3 large parties (National Coalition = like Republicans but way more left, The Center Party = hicks, SDP = Social Democratic Party) who all have like 20 % support. In the future, the Green party will be among the large 3 large ones since most of the young people vote for the Greens or National Coalition.

Also, in the capital of Finland, Helsinki, the Greens took a huge win and became the SECOND largest party! :mrgreen: Nationwide we now have 9 % support.

Congrats on the deadlift PB. I'm really starting to love that excersise after doing it for about 1 month. I don't do max reps but I keep reps pretty low. This thursday I did 120 kg for 6 reps. One day I'm gonna beat you :wink:
