Hi all,

This guy's stuff looks interesting. Anyone know where he is from? He just published his first book in English and wondering if worth it.

I see he is a competitive pro. I had some questions about his form in some of these videos however! I always read the best way to perform a bent row is with your back fairly parallel to the floor. Here he is almost standing up straight at times.
I also notice he uses a weight lifting belt? I have read quite a few times we should not be using a weight belt because it can create a weakness in the lower back, instead we are best to strengthen the low back rather than rely on a belt?!

In this video he is arching his back pretty bad toward the end of his set. I try to never arch my back and isn;t this bad form?

However, I can't argue with his physique.

What do I do when not bodybuilding or working? Spend time with family, play guitar, write music, snowboard, roast coffee, travel, read, fight for those who are less fortunate than myself.
