Sugar Train Slot
Recently yet another super-heavyweight Iron Immortal died from a heart attack at age forty-five or
thereabouts. Typically, when I read of these tragedies I search my memory banks and then write
some sort of tribute. Rather than eulogize yet another fallen warrior, for whom it's too late, and at
the risk of sounding presumptuous, I thought a slightly different approach might be appropriate and
perhaps even helpful in preventing a future tragedy. It is my contention that a shockingly large
percentage of retired national and international-level power lifters and Olympic weightlifters eat too
much, do nothing insofar as cardiovascular training and as a direct result unnecessarily risk
premature death. Sugar Train Slot
Retired super heavyweight lifters are particularly susceptible to this fatal phenomenon. Typically, the
'at risk' big-man lifter reduces or quits weight training - but doesn't quit the enormous eating habits
that got him big enough and dense enough to handle world record poundage. Super-heavyweight
power lifters consume too many calories and in particular they eat way too much saturated fat.
Food is broken down for energy within the body. A gram of fat contains nine calories. A gram of
protein or carbohydrate contains four calories per gram. For a man intent on bulking-up as large as
possible as fast as possible, fat calories, dense and compact, are the ticket. Fat calories pack twice
the caloric bounce-per-ounce as protein or crab calories and boy do they ever taste good! Allowing
taste to dictate our diet can be fatal. High fat food is delicious and it gives food a wonderful,
seductive flavour. The bulking lifter can eat twice as many calories when they choose fat over
protein or carbohydrates. Sugar Train Slots
The problem is that dietary fat is easily converted to body fat. To use an automobile analogy, the big
lifter develops a body akin to that of a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado - but the heart muscle of the lifter
does not enlarge to accommodate the increased bulk. Metaphorically, the lifter has a heart designed
to power a 1967 VW Beetle but his 65-horsepower heart motor now motivates a 5000-pound
Cadillac body: what an incredible strain on his little blood-pump. For a few short years, hugeness is
okay: the human body is incredibly resilient, but if the lifter doesn't pare the pounds eventually the
little heart muscle can suffer a blowout. Or will wear out from overuse.
The miraculous heart muscle pulsates 60-90 times a minute, sending blood coursing through the
veins and capillaries to receptive muscles and organs with the precision and regularity of a fine Swiss
watch. A hundred pounds (or more) of extra bodyweight will stress the tiny heart to the breaking
point. It's a hell-of-a dilemma; to reach the top of the power lifting game the lifter needs density in
relation to their height.
Ever notice how few tall Power lifters reach the international level? To achieve the requisite density
a tall lifter (over six-foot) would need weigh 400-pounds to match the density-per-inch the typical
under-six foot super heavyweight achieves. Most people who meet top power lifter are amazed at
how short they are in relation to their weight. To maximize leverage, lifters need density-per-inch-ofheight and super heavyweights, unencumbered by weight divisions, always have an effective avenue
available to increase their density-per-inch: eat more food and get bigger.
Big men feel they need dietary fat, 'dirty' calories, in order to gain the sheer bulk necessary to
compete at the national and international level. As my old coach Hugh Cassidy used to preach, a
serious super-heavyweight lifter can always "eat his way through a sticking point". Of course when
Hugh retired he dropped from 300-pounds to 190-pounds bodyweight inside a year. Cassidy was no
dummy (a power lifting genius) and had the sense to reduce his caloric intake when the whistle
sounded and the game was over. A lot don't and the consequences are apparently disastrous.
