The “unbelievable” Stage

After I did my 2,000-pound one-arm lift, I was so happy! I phoned up Bill Pearl right away. I was so excited and he was so excited. He knew I was trying to do 2,000, but he thought it would take 10 to 15 days because Unmilan had not yet fixed the power rack. When I told him what time I did the lifts, he said that he had been saying my name 100 times at that very hour, while I was lifting.

Bill Pearl says I am not threatening anybody in the weightlifting world now because I have passed that stage. He says I have come to the “unbelievable” stage.
