Derek Poundstone has been my favorite pro strongman since i first saw him defeat Mariusz Pudzianowski at the 2008 Mohegan Sun Grand Prix. Just thought i would make a thread here to show a little love for one of my favorite athletes.

Here is a link to his facebook it's worth mentioning that he is the only pro athlete i have seen who responds to comments regularly on his Facebook account, can't get any more legit then that.

I'll also include his latest video which is a compilation of his training leading up to the 2012 Arnold Classic. The video includes an insane 1,005 lb deadlift from the floor in nothing but a belt. Simply crazy!

Edit: The video doesn't seem to be working but it's posted on his facebook page.

Also here is another Picture of Derek posted a couple of days ago weighing in at a very impressive 330 lbs for the upcoming Arnold Classic. I hope he takes his 3rd Arnold Classic title home.

I Fuckin Hate Cops
With that said, he is very interesting to watch and is definitely one of my favorite athletes.
Wish this was the Cop that popped me for test. prop instead of the spineless hicks that got me.
I guess everyone at his department just ignores the fact that he uses anabolics.
I really fuckin Hate cops.

I love Derek Poundstone as well. I saw that picture when he posted it on Facebook and it is honestly, for me, the most inspiring physique I have ever seen.

While still pretty incredible, the 1005 lbs deadlift appears to have blue reverse bands attached to it. I'm sure he was doing them to train for the Hummer tire deadlift. I wish he would have specified that it was reverse band but most people watching probably wouldn't know what that meant anyway.

If Derek can remain consistent in his progress, he'll pull 1110 next year.
