Somebody better tell Misha to go over under. I think he's missing out :rolleyes: This guy is freaky. I hope he competes WSM. I think he could possibly be the strongest man on the planet.

He's a beast. He posts a lot of videos over at the marunde board. There was one of an almost-triple deadlift at 853 with hook grip. He's also like 12 pounds off from the biggest snatch ever. I don't think he's competed in WSM, just some other high level contests.

Both of the hands are facing away.

No, both of the hands face towards you. The only difference is that the thumbs grab the bar first and your fingers wrap around your thumb instead of vice versa. It is most common in OL's

Looked to me like he missed it on grip too.

Insane man...

I find it amusing watching him set up, you can tell he comes from an Oly background just from his set up, he also deadlifts like he is about to clean.
