Default American Powerhouse: Derek Poundstone - 02-28-2011, 11:00 PM

I just picked up a recent issue of Muscle & Fitness and thought I would post on the Cover Story. It's about a guy titled "America's Strongest Man" Derek Poundstone. This guy is huge! I won't spoil much of what this guy can do and has done, but I only wish that I can one day do at least half of it. He Started lifting at a young age like many of the big athletes do. Started in strongman competitions in the late teens. He's also the Global Ambassador for the Special Olympics. Standing a 6'1" and approx. 335lbs, this hulk has pulled the weight of an Air Malta Airbus in the 2009 WSM (100,000lbs), deadlifted 800lbs for 9 reps, hoisted an atlas stone of 555lbs to a 42" platform (world record) and can log press 286lbs 13 times.

Oh, and he does it while still having 2 herniated disks.

Simply Wow.....makes me wanna turn back the clock and follow a different path to reach those goals.....truly an inspiration.

No not juice a whole lot...sheesh...I am a product of the "Just Say No!" Program from the '80s.

What I meant is.....and I am not sure if I even told anyone on here about it....but....in middle school when I was about 13 or 14 yrs old (7th & 8th grade) I started lifting at home. I wanted to be bigger and stronger than the other kids and some of my inspirations were from comics and wrestling and guys like him. If things were different....this is where i could have been.....but after the accident(s).....

Well, no offense, but I don't think any of us could go where Poundstone and Pudz have gone without gear....and LOTS of it. Sure they do the work, but they ain't natural....by any means.

I think having the last name 'poundstone' is an instant way to becoming epic.

Nothing great was ever achieved by being realistic. Most people get scared when setting goals, and ask only for what they think they can get, not what they really WANT. This is a mistake because puny, "realistic" goals are NOT motivating, WANTS are motivating.

Well, man, I just got burgers!
