Questionable Claims


John McCarter

Recommended Posts

I'm creating this thread for a few reasons. 1) So, we as members don't take away from other threads, or, have said threads get shut down. 2) If something needs to be questioned, we can look at it with critical eyes. 3) Look at any extraordinaire claims presented with a healthy dose of skepticism. 4) To be able to question anything if something presented as "real" might be in fact, fake.

My only request for the members of this board, be civil in the discussions presented within this thread.

This is fake I reckon.

No one lifts inch dumbbells that easily.

I'm saying they're made of foam. They weight 1.72lb instead.

Who's with me?

Please do not troll this thread or be disrespectful. Good day!

Argument stands. It looks too easy to be real.

The only thing being disrespected there is those dumbbells, ;)

I believe you have the power to rep INCH bells.  

 

But they weren't scaled.  How do we know what they were?

That’s the thing. It didn’t look easy. Insanely impressive but certainly didn’t look easy judging by your or whoever’s body thrusting all over the bench. 
 

another thing. If someone was going to be pressing a set of inches I’d expect them to look like you or whoever that is, not a very slender small person.

It was never an actual argument, it's trolling. Pretending otherwise is pointless. Nobody called you out over your inch lifts lately from what I can tell and you are the only one to mention them. This thread would be better served by posting things people have real concerns about not things nobody questioned.

Just going to leave this here, as this thread is dedicated to such inquiry.
 


In light of what we know now, the reality appears visually evident.

If there is something new we can gather from the video, let's focus on that. No slinging mud or trolling.

Actual evidence that supports any claim of falsifying the gripper in question or certification process.

So, as I said here

If someone has videos with Tiziano opening Carl's package and the other one, where he closes those gripper the next day, feel free to share your findings (or those videos).

There may also be gaps in the spring coil on Warren Tetting gripper or silver springs on CoC or GHP.

I traveled last month to California to train with Carl. We did Grippers, Saxon, Axle, and some other stuff. For grippers I attempted his 214 GE shortly after I closed a 206 4. The 214 is the same one Tiziano attempted in that video.  Neither me or Carl noticed anything wrong with it, same spring, same spread, stamps are correct. I will release more information to clarify some of the questions people are having on how this was all done.

Just checked it out. He's not on the list. As of the writing, they still have his write up published and video on their youtube account.

I'm not much on the technology end of things but all this was kind of predicted way back in the day when all we had sometimes was a "photograph" .  As the ability to edit or create video becomes greater and greater the ability to make it look like something happened that really did not is going o be a bigger and bigger issue.  The day will come when competition results may be the only way to prove anything - and probably strict rules will be needed even then.
