I'll input my data in yo face wut
Should change title to 'Tom Martin WTF Thread'
Post bicep snap. Hookgrip.
He's an impressive lifter, regardless of bdywgt.
in regards to best u100kg PL ever, how does Tom compare to Ed Coan & Yuri Belkin? I believe they are regarded as the GOAT's in that catagory? He must be right up there with them!?
He's definitly up there! 982.5kg total @110kg so thats 2161.5lbs @242 And pulls conventional
I think Eddie Coan lifted in multiple weight classes and outlifted guys in bigger weight classes. According to wikipedia
Squat - 961 lbs
Bench - 584 lbs
Deadlift - 901 lbs @220lbs
I think he lifted a lot in single ply too, I've seen written elsewhere his raw lifts weren't far off Eric Lillibridges at one point and he has one of the current biggest all time totals.
Bit confusing as some was equipped and some not, different weight classes and all in pounds too!
Belkins last WR 440kg deadlift was a 4th attempt and the fed has been accused by some of using special 50kg plates to help the bar bend more for sumo pullers etc etc. Still ridiculous numbers!
Mad respect for all these guys.
Ed Coan really does deserve the title go G.O.A.T, a 2446lb total!! at any bodyweight that's impressive
Tom is at it again, dropping to under 100kg, looking jacked as fuck and only coming 3rd on the all time rankings behind Belkin and Oak...
He was stood chatting at weigh ins. The sheer thickness of his physique is amazing to be fair.
Still dissapointed he never got the 1000 yet. Was convinced he was gonna do it this time but maybe the weight cut took it out of him
Not to take anything away from what’s a very impressive total when I say that, I just think we all know that he’s capable of more. To beat his 110 total as well is mega impressive. The guys not human.
We were talking in the instagroup saying how the fuck does he make 100kg given the size of him, then the only explanation is he’s absolutely shredded or has hollow bones.
Then he posted that pic.
Mind = Blown.
Dunno why it shocked me as it was the only plausible explanation but I think you just had to see it to believe it. Dan green and Tom Martin are defo the top physiques in PL atm. Powerful physique as well.
965 to 1000 is still a huge step to take.
Another 20 on his squat if he had got 380 would have left him still needing another 15. So 10 on bench and 5 on deadlift.
Weight cut and heat would have played a huge part on the day. The heat especially so as it was brutal
Plz post pic for those who rnt in the insta group
Stil to this day my biggest dissapointment in life not being in the bad man click
Looks decent like bu not huge shock hes under 100kg from tha pic
To out his size into perspective. All of these guys were in the 100kg class
Even still, dnt recon nfn special see ppl like tha in most gyms
