    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If frilly were deadlifting 500 kg's, I do believe he'd be the current world record holder, or very close to it ;)

    Layman / Dachsund: great vintage Rolex pieces.

    Their sports watches probably get more love around here, and definitely more exposure....but both of those are stunners.


    Speaking of exposure: that was a nice find, frilly :slayer:

    SI is a real treasure trove LOL....

    Never attempted a one rep max and eventually hurt my lower back in 1994. Been much more careful/technical since then.

    But all my thigh and calf size were built from 1990 to 1994 when I was lifting that much. To this day I don't hear comments like "hey you forgot Leg Day." Hahaha!

    My right calf says hello!

    My right calf is a bit more bashful at the moment frilly, but it returns your greetings regardless :D

    P.S. The only thing I've lifted today is about 20 ounces of coffee.

    It's called a press car for a reason and its not the first time, he had Bentley for Basel world, I think he has a good relationship the vag group as he drives a Q5 himself.

    Its more a promotional tool for Audi and a way to ad a lifestyle touch to it than anything else, I highly doubt anyone who's intrested in a RS7, is going to buy it based on a review from a watch site and it looks better than them riding round in a Focus from Avis.

    It's the same car /drive took across southern Germany a couple weeks ago, so I'm more interested in what kind of mileage that car has and how it's holding up more than anything.



    Supersets with a minute break between sets kills me every time.

    Agree with Hroi - watches cars and deadlifts intermixed with Kate uptom then back to watches. This thread is on fire

    I'm jealous. I've never lifted that heavy and ever since I tore my pec , shoulder and bicep doing BJJ, those days of crushing it in the gym are long gone I'm afraid.

    Owning a DSSD I still wouldn't contemplate going after 500 lbs. I'll stick with my wide grip deads - love em but also hate them like crazy

    I think BK's point was not so much "why the Audi RS7?" as "why the lavish freebie?", and whether that takes away from the integrity of the article. Press junkets are nothing new, but for instance, a couple of bloggers were mentioning recently how they don't accept free goods in return for a review e.g. "here's my new hand-made tie, free of charge, why don't you write what you think of it?". The assumption would be not necessarily of untruth, but a natural burden of human politeness out of gratitude.

    So, when the watch maker's PR team call up Mr Dink and say "hey, why don't you drive this luxury car around the Cote d'Azur for a few days on us, and of course we're picking up the hotel and bar bill, and when you get to your room, yes that baggy of coke and the two teenaged hookers are all yours free of charge...now, here's the watch, enjoy and write what you want, obviously..." *wink*...perhaps we can ask a similar question?

    I'm not saying their reviews are biased, but then again, I've never seen them write a review about anything that says it sucks. Perhaps it's that way around? These guys never say anything really bad in their reviews, so they're the ones who get the car, the coke and the Sakaeva twins?*
