As you can see a great strength sport have been fucked up.  Powerlifting was the shit in 1970-1980 when NO stupid suits, shirts, and mile-long wraps were allowed and not even invented yet.  Weights were real and world records were real world records!!!

Imagine what it would be by 2050?!?  A fuckin’ Robocop suit maybe!!

One thought on “Synthol = Powerlifting Gear & Equipment

  1. Buddy you could wrap sheets round your body,body wrapping, and use any length knee wrap you wanted , like 8 m long and of course no drug testing so every one was on horse steriods. Your like all the idiots who whine about equipment, you just don't know what your talking about
