Clean grip does not let you do this. It forces you to keep your shoulders up and your back tight. It also stops hurting after a couple of weeks.
Aside from that, I'm miring how upright you're able to stay. You have much better ankle and hip mobility than me.
Yea, I see that rounding now. Thanks for pointing it out.
The problem is, I can't even get into a proper clean grip lol. Arms be too juicy :\

I have a hard time believing someone with the stones and drive to squat a ton doesn't have the character to say "you know what, I juiced" if someone asked them about it, especially in a sport where attitude and mindset count for more than anything else.
The advantage of being an onlooker is that I haven't drank the kool-aid when it comes to cut-and-dry concepts like "fraudulent misrepresentation." I just don't think you've understood how I'm pointing out that PED use and the concept of "cheating" are not mutually exclusive. I'm pretty sure people can juice, put up a world record total and say "you're goddamn right I'm cycling," and I'd be okay with it.
Either way, strong dismissive cop-out bro.
Haha if use ever becomes legal, more people will be open to saying it. From my experience, powerlifters have told me IF I ask (which was very rarely until I realized it's none of my business).
But until then, much like other crimes, you ain't going to people openly admit it.
So go ahead and wave your flag that says "STEROIDS ARE FOR CHEATERS"
I guarantee you no one is losing sleep over what YOU think
