    Not bad at all, after wasting so much energy by doing overly clean reps -not to mention the paused contractions at the top, which are completely unnecessary. Clean reps for the victory!

    140kg deadlift comfortably for 3 reps without even using a mixed grip. Very impressive for a guy his size.

    You should be careful when doing these exercises. The military guy's posture at 2:12 was wrong. He had a curved back. Super dangerous and could lead to future complications. You should always try to have a straight back.

    Compulsory military service had done a lot of good for us. Great for sports, being outdoors, stop complaining and enjoy knowing every odd guy the society had hidden from you 'til then. No hesitations, just do it - only ask yourself how best. Too bad for the younger generations.

    Not trying to coach or anything. But I’ve fucked my neck up before keeping my head looking up at the bottom of a deadlift pull. Notice how the Norwegian guy looks at the ground (neutral spine) while Magnus pulls while looking up. Be careful.
