    This is powerlifting in 2019. The likes on social media are more important then the actual comp. Sad but true.

    Social media has grown powerlifting's popularity to places nobody could have expected just a few years ago. But it's ruined it at the same time.

    can anyone tell me why he shoulder pressing barbells like that??
    Showing off? Just harder balancing 2 BB's than 2 dB's of equal weight, and way harder than ONE BB of equal total weight?

    Yup.

    AGREED. But he seems to be more of a very strong Showman than a very strong strength sports purist at this point in his career? Kinda like carving out his own niche in the strength world. Back in the infancy of PL, in the early 1960s, contests were often called "Odd Lifts," and did not always use the same Big 3 we use today.

    YouTube is more profitable than any competition he may have ahead. He probably knows this and is willing to risk it for the clicks. Most strongmen are focusing a lot on their YouTube channels lately because they've realised that it pays well.

    Lol, yeah, I'm naive enough to not always see that fact even though it's right there in front of me when I​ go to youtube. Already hooked on all the stuff Brian Shaw has churned out, although I confess I'm more amazed by his eating episodes than by his training ones.

    I've been watching a lot of Martins Licis recently. The guy is extremely funny and gives some great advice sometimes.

    All about the money. The guys making a better living than most of us and doing what he loves at the same time. And traveling the world.

    And to top it off, he’s one of the most genetically gifted powerlifters/strongmen we’ll ever see.
    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
    Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either.
    Pretty much just leave me alone.

    This used to be true before Google bought YouTube, but it is not true anymore. I personally know (my best friend/brother) is one of the big names on YouTube and he makes considerably less than half of what he used too. His salary is average at best now, sadly. That is the current truth/state of YouTube. My friend has a quarter of a billion views and over a million and a half subscribers. The powerlifting guys are just trying to get a little slice of the pie (like everyone else) and it's wise that they are doing so, but it's not a lot of scratch like people think it is.

    Ads are not the only way to make money off YouTube. You still have sponsors, selling merchandise, you can even use YouTube to promote future events.
