(edited to reflect the lift was from 2006)

Here's video of deadlift specialist Tee Myers pulling 761 pounds at the 2006 WNPF World Championships on November 10. Myers, who is 51, competed in the 198 class, weighing in at 186 pounds.

Tee is a bad ass when it comes to pulling, congrats Skinny Man!

Man, does he act obnoxious. I don't think I could take him and Rich Edinger in the same venue.

Yea, and he pissed and moaned on all of the forums about gear....That didnt look like a singlet, either way, nice pull Tee.

Too bad I couldn't see the pull b/c they zoomed in on his face. Impressive nonetheless-who cares if it's a singlet or suit? To me that's more impressive than a 900 lb bench or squat. are those shades legal?

Tee weighed in at 185 and pulled 761 very clean.

I hung around him a bit and talked to him.

He seems like a wonderfully nice guy.
I really like him.

All the trash talking was used to motivate others.

The people he was trash talking with were the same ones that he was back stage helping.

I saw it live.

761 pull at 185 for a man over 50 yrs old is awesome no matter how you look at it.

Those shades are legal in 48 states :)

Congratulations again "skinny"

Nice pulling!

Tee never ceases to impress..., and always lends a hand to fellow lifters both unexperienced and experienced!

Congrats SKINNY MAN!!!

hard to tell cause of the zoom, but it looks like that came up pretty freakin easy! good pull T.

anyone notice his knuckles are touching his knee caps at lockout?! haha

This is 10% Luck, 20% Skill, 15% Concentrated Power of Will... 5% Pleasure, 50% Pain, and 100% Reason to Remember the Name!

Great lift, very damn impressive, now lose that 4 lbs and go 181..lol

Tee is one of the nicest people once you get to know him and for you others making comments about him get to know him first then make your comments. Tee awesome pull for any age cogratulations and heres to seeing you pull more in the future.

Funny you said that.
I am a short armed bench presser and I stood next to Tee. His belt line is a foot higher than mine.
He can scratch his knees while standing erect. I was surprised at how easy the weight moved. I am such a poor deadlifter.....he just amazes me.

Impressive pull! Love the shades and the celebration afterwards. His age and weight class.... he deserved it. Wow, that was fresh.

Putt Houston.... now with more Bom Chicka Wahwahhhhhh

Tee is a really nice person and is willing to help anyone. He talks trash but you have to laugh when you are around him when he talks trash.

Great pull, Skinny Man.

Jon:

Where did you get this video?

I dont think this video was from nov 10th in atlanta.

I was there and saw it live. The room was configured differently and I see people in the video that I dont remember seeing at the meet.

I think this is old video.

The real thing looked very similar. Big celebration and all. He is intense.

wow if you can scratch you knees while standing erect then you got pretty long arms lol.\

At any rate this is amazing. It just goes to show you, you can still be old and lift effin heavy weights!

Great Job!

some of you dont realize it but skinny man is lifetime drug free, he has been on espn and other sports networks he is pound for pound one of the greats pullers of all time ,i rember doing one of his meets with curtis warren and he pulled 760 for a double at 183 just for fun. he hypes up the crowd and puts on a show and has always been that way. I can promise u this he is not going to stop been the skinny man for no one.he is a great guy and u should meet him before u jude him.

Another 198 freak! WTF?!

I think Sam Byrd is secretly amassing a small army of 198's to take over the sport. The Mutant Middleweight Militia or something!

Stay with it,

I wonder if we can get Tee and Methuzelah(sp?) in a pull off ? They're both about the same age. Great pullin' T-bucket.

Peace out and lift safe

I personally feel that Tee is a horrible representative of the sport. Wearing sunglasses while lifting, being obnoxious and jumping into the crowd. I was at a meet that he hosted where he lifted after judging and completely drew the attention away from the accomplishments of the rest of the lifters. Tee is all about Tee.

Ah well then, you don't know skinny man very well.

Tee Meyers has been my mentor and coach for 10+ years. His gym and the home of his federation (Python Power League) is 5 miles down the street from my house.

I'm glad to see so many positive posts. Tee deserves every bit of it. He has without a doubt tuned his lift, the deadlift, down to perfection.

His attitude is every thing that should embody a powerlifter. Competitiveness, mental toughness, and a desire to see all lifters do well.

As for the haters, well there will always be haters. Their problem is that Tee's presence commands respect and they just don't want to give it. Even though, Tee would still do any thing to help his fellow lifters out.

So skinny man, let's see that 8 double 0!

I had the pleasure of lifting prior to Tee in the flight in all 3 rounds. He truely is inspirational. It's an experience I soon won't forget. Once again congratulations "skinny man". You certainly deserve them.

Rich

Good lift Tee. You don't need to wear all that gear to pull 761 lbs. I can pull it at 181 lbs with no gear, without a belt and drugfree. For those that are reading this comment saying yeah right. I'll prove it as soon as I find a contest near Fort Bragg/Fayetteville NC.

Tee Myers is 51. How old are you?
Do it now and then after you are 50 and you will be Tee's equal.

Was that Blade?

jeez no need for the show boating. crazy lifting though. . . but stil. .. the show boating makes me wish he didnt hit the weight

I'm 35 years old. I give Tee the up most respect and hopefully I will still be pulling when I'm 51.

700 is a long way from761

that video was from last years worlds when i competed in the wnpf worlds in atlantic city

I am Tee "Skinny Man" Meyers....and I thank all of you for your comments...whether negative or positive....yes...the video was last year's nationals....(if anyone has this year's worlds..please send it to me!) but the fact remains that I pulled 761 lbs...drug free....51 years old ...10 years after having two chipped bones removed from my back on the right and I have a pinched nerve on the left side. I give God all the glory. If I have offended anyone with my celebrations or antics...I apologize and ask your forgiveness. I just have fun lifting and meeting and rooting for all my fellow lifters. I'd like to thank my training partners Rhonda "Big Kuntry" Sams and W.C. "Whyte Choklit" Waldren for helping me so much. I pray for all of my fellows lifters to have big lifts and much success. Peace.....Tee "Skinny Man" Meyers....the AARP World Champion (over 50) and the World's Strongest Grand Daddy!

The description Tee initially used with the video said that the lift was from 2007. I've changed the article to reflect that it was actually from 2006. Sorry for any confusion.

Great friggin lift Tee!!!

Chris

GREAT LIFTING... SHOW ANY EMOTION , YOU LIKE. FOR, IT MEANS YOU ARE ALIVE AND NOT A ROBOT.....THE DEADLIFT IS THE KING OF ALL EXERCISES....."There is no point in being alive if you cannot do the DeadLift." Jon Pall Sigmarsson..WSM X'S 4. The meet truly does not start till the bar hits the floor.............

Tee your still at it. Looked strong again. you have always been able to get in that perfect. upright pulling position similar to vince anello. It's almost like a forklift with the load all the way up to the wheels. The load is close to your legs is what I mean. Everything in a straight line. I was never flexable enough to use or try that deadlift form. Blue is very close to you in his dl max, but he has to bend over some like most of us.

Great lift Skinny Man. Have you ever tried dl in a canvas suit turned around backwards. It works well for some I have seen. I would use any thing I could to get to 800, and stay drug free. But if thats where you stand(limited gear) stay with it. Maybe you could bring your team down to Fla sometime and do a Apf meet. Blue does most all of them, the southern states is in Jacksonvile 12-1-07. It would be a trip to see you lift, Blue Tony conyers myself Gearman Joe Ladnier Gary frank and the Florida apf lifters could probably get you motivated enough to get over that 800 milestone, Think about it. I used to talk to you alot at the Buddy Duke meets. Let us know if you decide to give the Fla Apf a try. Thanks

Long winded. Who is the man? Skinny man

700 is a long way from761

This is for Mr Anonymous! 700 lbs isn't far from 761 lbs. It is all in your head. Plus I did it with a cheap singlet. No deadlift suit or wraps. The day I did 700 lbs I still had a open hole in my back from a minor surgery I had two weeks prior. Thanks for adding fuel to the fire Mr Anonymous. I'll make sure I do it just for you who every you are. I'm still a no name in the powerlifting and bodybuilding world, but I'm still winning in both. Also Skinnyman Tee I can fully understand the celebration after a big lift. It takes a long time to claim down after a big lift. Everyone has there way of celebrating. Hell most of the time I do a most muscular pose after a good lift and wow it looks good in a photo.

Great pull Tee, good luck with the 800.

First off, I would like to congratulate Tee. I can't think of any dl in history that was bigger than 761 over 50. Please someone correct me if I am wrong. And what a coefficient that is what over 4x bodyweight. That is awesome lifting.

Second, Tee is the nicest guy int he world. He is just putting on a show for fun and it was all planned. He came to the NOTLD a couple of years ago and he is really the nicest guy. Before he talked smack to guys during the lifter intros, he asked them back stage if it was okay. If you don't know the whole story, sometimes it is hard to judge.

Third, who says it is wrong to celebrate. DO athletes in other sports celebrate after doing something big. How about Brandi Chatine pulling off her clothes on Wolrd TV to celebrate a victory (I hope Tee is not planning that one)? It happne sin every sport and as long as it does not demean another person, I think it is fine.

Fourth, Tee is a freak. He looks like a spider. Long legs, longer arms, and a short torso make him a dl machine. That does not take away from his decades of hard work.

Fifth, several organizations allow sunglasses. So, it is not banned in the WNPF, WPO, or the NOTLD.

Sixth, Robert Herring, I would love to have you come over and lift at the NOTLD. It is the biggest pro dl meet in the country and we have it every Halloween. I have seen vids of you lifting and you are extrememly strong and I think you would be a great addition and I know you can lift way into the 700's. I would love to see you compete with people like Tee, Eiseman, Holloway, Caleb Williams, Mike Nease, James Searcey, and hopefully next year Nick Roman and many more. We would be honored to have you and if you would like more info abcampbell69@hotmail.com.

And finally, I think Tee and exciting and interesting personalities are good for our sport. I hear so many people say that pl is too boring. Well, not when Tee is around.

Congrats, Tee!

Alex Campbell

LOL... Tee's been watching too many Dave Ricks videos. I'd recognize that military march off the stage anywhere.

OOOH RAH!

Putt Houston.... now with more Bom Chicka Wahwahhhhhh

Mr Campbell I would like to say thanks for the recognition and motivating words. I would love to come lift at the next NOLD. I had planned to come this year, but I'm still active duty Army so I had to be in another area during that time. I will make plans in advance to be there next year. I could only imagine what my energy and strength level would be like just by being in the same room with Tee, Eiseman, Holloway, Caleb Williams, Mike Nease, James Searcey, etc. Please stay in contact Alex and my email address is Robert.Herring@us.army.mil

No excuses! Just lift it!

Tee is an amazing lifter and one on one is easy to talk to and quite friendly. I don't like how far he takes his "showmanship" as some call it. I've seen him (a few years ago) shout constant and obnoxious insults at a meet promoter from the back of the room the whole while the meet promoter was trying to talk. It seemed to get to a near fight when the promoter finally answered back. For all of the 'good example' he says he's about; he seems to 'undo' most of it if this is his example to young lifters. That was the worst episode but I've seen him get loud and embarrassing a few other times shouting at people at meets. But, as I said, great lifter and great lift. I too would like to have seen the whole lift. I'm sure it was solid. His usually are.

I just watched the video. I was the head judge. I've seen Tee pull many times. It's about the show and he's entertaining and everyone at the meets seems to like it. Lighten up a bit. Tee has competed in full meets. He'll be the first to tell you his bench suffers. Even when he was uninjured. His back and shoulders don't allow him to compete as he once did but, I'd be willing to be he could still go in the squat. The bench...not so much...sorry Skinny...LOL. I've seen Tee lift and help with the meet and helps lifters in the same day. He's a good guy across the board. Hell, at least he can pull off the shades and show. Not many others can.

Tee had legit 700+ squats on the books weighing in the low 180s, as well as numerous 350+ raw benches (close to 2X bodyweight). Regardless of your personal opinions of him, he is a lifting machine.

I also forgot to mention that Tee is really a nice guy. When I announced him the winner, he came out and said he was having fun and named 3 lifters by name that were better than him or were going to be better, but said it was just his day to win. That is th ekind of guy he is. He also donated several videos and things to me to use for my high school powerlifters. He is all heart. He also said the prayer for us at th emeet and always gives kids good advice about hard work and not using drugs.

Also, I second the high 700 squat. It is amazing that he can squat that much. When you see his build you automatically think dl specialist, but he can squat with the best as well.

Hey, Tee congrats on your lift as always. No matter how much you lift, there will always be somebody to say and post negative comments about you, but you know who you are and you dont have to ever apology to anyone for being you. People are always going to judge you weather they know you or not. Regardless of the few negative comments, never stop being Tee "Skinny Man" Meyers. One of the greatest deadlifter I know. Keep doing what you do.

hey robert herring there is an apf meet at clayton fitness (clayton nc, an hour drive for you)jan 26th. full power, bench only, push/pull and dead only. i believe you pulled 705 in jan of 06 there in a full power meet.

I just noticed that Skinnyman Tee is having a contest the same day. So I'll be going to Augusta GA instead of Clayton NC. I never got the opportunity to meet Tee in person, but I can say he has emailed me several times and hes a nice guy that will go the extra mile to help you. Plus if I plan to break a deadlift record it would be great to break it with The Deadlift King Skinnyman Tee. The energy with him being in the room will add 60 lbs to my total deadlift.

YES....WE ARE HAVING A MEET IN JANUARY ROBERT...IT WOULD BE AN HONOR TO HAVE YOU AT OUR MEET....YOU ARE A "BEAST"!...IF YOU WANT TO FLEX, DANCE, SANG OR WHATEVER...YOU CAN...JUST MOVE THAT IRON FOR US AS I KNOW YOU CAN!!!...ALSO SOME HAVE ASKED ME HOW AM I CONTINUING TO MOVE BIG WEIGHTS AT 51...THEY ASKED COMPLAINED ABOUT JOINT PAIN (DON'T WE ALL) AND MORE ENERGY. JUST E-MAIL ME AND I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO TELL YOU (PYTHONGYM@AOL.COM).
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO SOME GREAT DEADLIFTERS THAT WERE AT THE WNPF WORLDS THIS NOVEMBER MOVING OVER 600 LBS....RICH SADIV, SLAYBAUGH, STEVE "DA LEGEND" YEARGIN, DEAN "HUGO" NICHOLS, CARLOS "BRASIL" ARTUR & GREG "I AIN'T" WRIGHT.....WE HAD A BALL! UNTIL WE TALK AGAIN...STAY STRONG, STAY CLEAN, STAY SAVED AND I'LL SEE YA ON THE PLATFORM.

I first met the Skinny Man in 1995 and also thought he loved to brag and be loud. He started in the parking lot and didn't stop all the way through the meet in Atlanta. I promise you it is not bragging if you can do it, it is stating a fact. He is the man and has always been the man.
He has the same right to act any way he wants to the same as anyone else. Talked to him several times throughout the years and is a great guy that will answer your questions and actually try to help anyone. Great Job Tee, stay strong and healthy and keep having fun even if very body
don't know how to. We are here to lift and have fun doing it. Tee is a great show, and I love to watch. Jesse

Seeing my AARP tagteam partner pull over 700 pounds is always a pleasure. Tee is the man, and I am proud to know him.

Just as an incredible person as he is a deadlifter

MY MAN IS THE GREATEST. ALL HIS HARD WORK AND DEDICATION IS REMARKABLE. HE IS STRONG IN ALL AREAS OF HIS LIFE....PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL. I AM SO PROUD OF HIM AND RESPECT HIM BECAUSE OF HIS WILLINGNESS TO LET NOTHING STOP HIM FROM BEING THE BEST HE CAN BE NO MATTER THE AGE. TEE, I HAVE ONLY KNOWN YOU FOR A SHORT TIME, BUT IT SEEM LIKE AN ETERNITY. I DON'T CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY OR THINK ABOUT YOU. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND NEVER CHANGE. BE YOURSELF. I CAN'T WAIT TO WALK DOWN THAT AISLE WITH YOU AND KNOWING THAT WE WILL BE THE ENVY OF EVERYONE PUTS A BIG OLE SMILE ON MY FACE. I CAN TRULY SAY THAT "I PICKED A WINNER". I LOVE YOU, TEE BABY. "BE BLESSED".

A class act and a hell of a lifter.

A funny cat.
