    That video is ridonkulous!
    Can someone explain the purpose of Westside Barbell’s (or powerlifters) ubber wide squat, deadlift, etc stance? The range of motion is so small. Granted I can’t squat or deadlift what they are regardless of my stance width, but I just don’t get it. It appears they can go heavier, but what’s the purpose?

    The purpose is explained in Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength. The gist of it is this: when you are weight training, the goal is strength, so you lift according to the most functional path, which involves normal stances and larger ranges of motion. When you are competing in powerlifting meets, the goal is not strength but rather maximum load. Thus, lifters adopt a smaller range of motion in order to get higher loads. That’s it. It’s all about the numbers.
    That said, whilst it is extremely impressive to see Priscilla Ribic (a 148-lb female) deadlifting 555 lbs a few inches off the ground with an überwide sumo stance, it is way more impressive to me to see Andy Bolton deadlifting 1009 lbs two feet with a normal stance:

    hey guys…we will be having a free yoga class on Thursday at 7pm. The instructor is a lululemon ambassador and will be concentrating on the hips, lower back, and shoulders. I think it will be great for everyone. Hopefully I will see you all there.
