Before anything is said, I had my woman film all my attempts. I did not know that their quality turned out the way the did. I am upset because of that fact; I'm better known for having great videos, this one sucks on that part.

For anyone asking questions about my technique, I talked to Luke before the King Kong and showed him that everything was legal on my end. If he said no, I would have gladly have follow his command. I do lock out as the down command was given. Everything was cleared by him.

It has a cool mysterious vibe to it. For that, good job to the camera woman.

Reminds me of a challenger in a fighting game showed only in silhouette.

Anyways, legs locked, unbraced, locked out, looked all good.

Great lift. 100 soon in contest.... Don't beat yourself up about not hitting training numbers. Contests are a different beast.

-Hard to know where to open up

-How much weight to add between attempts.

-getting warmed up right in a social environment where it's more fun to hang out and bs

-staying mentally and physically "on" for 4-6 hours or more of the average contest.

Etc... Congrats on the record!

Thanks man. I didn't not think of it like that.

Thanks! I had fun the whole time. I wasn't expecting to get 100 but did make an effort to attempt it officially (freaking shirt got caught under my thumb and messed up my attempt), there's always another day, place and time to make it happen.

For now, I'm happy with the results I produced for my first contest.

Actually, I think the video looks like some crazy Hollywood sci-fi movie promo...

I am sure when you have more official records on video this one will have a certain cool factor but until then, good job with the lift!

Huge hub lift, John! I was surprised your LBH was so low compared to your training numbers, by the way. I just got a chance this week (went to a funeral) to try out a new Little Big Horn. I didn't take any warmups and pulled 185 both hands. Then about 5 minutes later, I pulled 200lbs both hands.

I heard some of them (LBH) feel really tacky and others are slick. You guys might've had the slick one.

Mine is pretty slick. People commented on it at my location. just like everything grip, the surfaces vary a lot.

Thanks Ben. That was the first time I ever touched the LBH, it was well seasoned just felt different from the one I'm using. The axle and LBH were two tools I didn't have and had to improvise with what I had.

Thanks guys! I do wish the video was more clear but I'll do better next time on that part. King Kong was a learning experience for certain.

King Kong? King John!

Video has a mysterious and cool style. Sci-fi

Thanks man. Think I'll still stick with "The Beast" as nickname for right now.

I know I keep downing myself about the video, and the more I read people's comments about how the video looks, it is starting to make me feel better about it.

I wasn't happy because I was having an off day, I had more in the tank and was going to attempt 102 or 103 lbs as an official lift but my thumb got caught on my shirt as I started to make the attempt and was denied my effort. I sucked it up and accepted what I had done, I didn't even think of myself as the world record holder until I knew for certain of what the results where but I'm glad I could raise the bar some, I don't expect to this number to stay where it is at officially right now. I hope someone can claim it as their own one day, if it be someone new to grip or me defending the record.

Congratulations John! A hub lift heavy enough to scare Chuck Norris!

Here is Luke Wicks video he took of the lift. It shows what's going on more clearly.
