The most incredible feat of strength/crime against nature

I just had to give a shout out because this blew my mind........ A teammate of mine, Matt Minuth, had been talking about competing in the XPC Finals at the Arnold Classic for a few months.... I always thought he was joking about this, but he actually did it.

Matt Minuth cut 23lbs to lift as a Lightweight ( @ 217lb bodyweight) on Friday and won...... he won the overall with 2550 at <220.

Then turned around THE NEXT DAY and competed as a heavyweight (@235lbs) where he placed second to Brian Carrol ( and could have won, but his last deadlift was turned down 2-1 for the lockout) with a 2585 total.


The guy is a machine. He doesn't promote himself a lot, but definitely look for him to be one of the all time greats in the sport...... 2550 on Friday and 2585 on Saturday...... that's borderline between amazing and a crime against nature.

How did he even get out of bed Saturday morning? And manage to gain all that weight?

I mean the total alone is mind blowing...

What was more impressive, the cut or the recomnp?

I can't imagine how he did either, but then again, that's why I don't compete.:)

Vids or it didn't happen...... I'm only kidding.

That's crazy that he totaled those numbers period, but to do it back to back it beyond nutz. I wonder what he's going to feel like on Mon.

Broke jaw because of how fast it fell while reading this. Read again, re-broke jaw.

Headed to hospital now...

Absurd. Absolutely insane absurdity.

I DID see Iryna Petrovich compete in back to back days at RUM this year, with huge totals for a female. And Tee Cummins freaking competes a couple times a month and does heavy workouts between meets. But these people are
definitely outliers and not the norm.
