That's an even bigger deal, he's got to be virtually impossible to knock down.

But he doesn't have massive biceps so apparently he's a bust.

I wouldn't say that. Compounds lifts like heavy squats and deadlifts are notorious for being amongst the best core workouts. Especially front squats.

lol pls get a clue on lifting. You think that the movement of Deadlifts only build lower back( which is wrong to say lower back since it works the whole back)? First of all, deadlifting requires alot of hamstring and glutes. Secondly, Deadlifting also requires a lot of the core/abs to stabilize because the weight is front of your point of balance. Building a 6 pack can be done with crunches and exercises like that, but the abs Eller has can only be acquired by lifting HEAVY weight. I dare you to do some heavy front squats and deadlifts and see for yourself how you will perform on abs exercises.

It is you who needs to get a clue. My reference to the lower back was obviously in relation to the core. It is the only primary muscle used that is part of the core in this exercise. You don't build mass with stabilizers.

Oh you don't say. The stabilizers are still greatly affected by the heavy lifting. Off course, doing crunches in the range of 3-6 reps with heavy weight will net you a better results, but nobody does that. Now please explain me how the powerlifters have a big gut + abs. And no powerlifter does isolation on abs.

This is hilarious. It almost reads like a hockey hipster achievement list.

The most visible muscles are not always the most used though, looking jacked doesn't mean you are that strong.

Some of us who find the discussion interesting know comparatively little about lifting.

Feel free to define the terms you use, or at least provide the better link rather than encourage others to read the first link on google, it will be appreciated.

These arguments are stupid, Eller is obviously stronger than he was last year, that's a good thing.

It means the average Jersey Shore lookalike wouldn't be able to survive a hit on the ice from Yannick effing Weber no matter how many bicep curls they do.

Nope.. my buddy who looks like Ronnie off Jersey Shore can do nothing against my buddy who has finished rather high in the Olympic trials for Canada in wrestling.

Does anybody know Eller's weight in the picture? He sure looks more than the 198 lbs he was listed at last season.

Also, how much does Price weight now? He was at 219 lbs last year, he looks lean, and much lighter in that picture.

Maybe it's just that I have zero faith in Eller. One positive thing I will say is that I hope playing in some tier 3 euro league against echl type competition will soften his hands.
You can't just focus abs..

Wow.. so you guessed everything right? Or you read 99% of people opinion on this and based yourself off this?

I'm going off what I remember from my (long ago) Biology classes. And I never ever said that Eller is as good as Peter fn Forsberg nor did I ever suggest that you have a mind which can be blown.
I've never been answered so kindly to a positive post, good guy!

Squats are the best abs builder. Nothing else activates them more.

Arnie never even did cardio once in his damn life MIND=BLOWN.
Cell tech is one of the most overated crap on earth. (On par with with Rick Nash)

crunches, 90 degree sit ups, dead bug etc are all solid ab exercises but they are strictly targeting. lastly to see a 6 pack, which by the way, is not a defining factor of 'great abs' or core (look at the sit up champions of the world and notice if you see 6 packs) - you see a 6 pack once you have less than 10% body fat
