    Talking Who's The Man?!

    My buddy Ray, and I went to the gym last night, it was a Friday night which can mean only one thing, Squat night!

    We chatted to the guy at the counter for a few minutes, while we waited for some guys to finish on the squat rack

    The guy’s finish their last set and leave the squat rack
    Now it’s time to get down to business!

    Ray goes to the toilet, and I head over to the far side of the room towards the Squat rack

    On my way to the squat rack a black dude puts his arm on my shoulder and says in a raised voice

    "I just Deadlifted 550 for 3 reps!"

    I don't know the guy and really couldn't give a fvck what he’s lifting

    "Well done" I say, trying to sound enthusiastic, and with that I carry on over to the Squat rack

    A minute or two later Ray comes out of the toilet and starts making his way over to me

    Ray walks past the black dude and makes eye contact

    “Hey” shouts the black dude “I just deadlifted 550 for 3 reps

    “Good for you” says Ray

    “Bet you can’t lift that” the black dude says, as he stares at Ray

    Ray looks at the 550lbs weight on the floor, then looks at the black dude

    “Nope probably not” he says, “It looks very heavy”

    “I knew it” shouts the black dude “I’m the strongest in this gym, no one can lift more than me”

    “You’re probably right,” says Ray “I don’t think anyone could beat you”

    Ray turns to walk away, when the black dude pipes up again

    “You couldn’t lift more than me if you tried. You know you’re not as strong as me and that’s why you didn’t even try to lift it”

    “You’re dead right,” says Ray “I could hurt myself trying to lift that”

    This time as Ray turns away the black dude gets a little carried away

    “Your just a pvssy” he shouts

    Ray turns around and looks straight at the black dude

    “Fvck it!” He shouts “Stick it on the bench and I’ll press the fvcker for you!”

    There’s no way this black dude is gonna back down now, everyone has heard what Ray’s just said and this black dude is gonna make Ray put his money where his mouth is

    Moments later the bench is loaded. There’s 550lbs on there as Ray sits on the end of the bench

    There must be 70 people crowded round Ray, all staring, many laughing to themselves

    Ray lies down and gets positioned below this monstrous weight

    He grasps the bar tightly and inhales deep into his belly, he tucks his chin and sees the black dude at the end of the bench looking at him

    He repositions his feet, and with one more deep breath Ray unracks the bar by himself, winks at the black dude, blows him a kiss and bangs out 2 reps!

    Maybe I missed something, but what does deadlifting 550lbs have to do with benching 550lbs?

    umm, most people typically lift a lot less on bench than they do on deads, he was pretty much just showing him up

    id like to see a pic of your buddy! thats insane to me. i cant really comprehend. I dont know what my equivilant would be cuz I use db's only. workout with 115's on flat bench. any clue about how much that would be on bar?? thats awsome. Funny how he kept like "yep, you're right" "you're the man" "Id get hurt"...haha, and then took it to him. Bet that black guy felt stupid. Did he leave the gym after that??

    It was so funny to watch!

    Ray is about 55 years old, he's been lifting for nearly 40 years

    He used to own a gym and regularly competed in strongman and powerlifting contests, winning many different shows

    He's a big mutha!

    So did you say anything to the black guy? Or just laughed at him.

    Yep sure did

    I don't think there are many people that could do that without a warm up

    I didn't put it in the story because i was trying to build the suspense

    I'd say 6' 3" and around 270lbs

    He's of a big, blocky, strongman build

    You know those big old blokes you see

    You know the one's.....with the huge solid forearms.....the sturdy looking fella

    Well that's Ray
