These videos are coming more frequently. I would guess Andy might have to worry a little bit.

I have to imagine shaking that guys hand is akin to putting your hand in a hydraulic press :omg:

Simply amazing!

On a side note, I am doing block pulls tomorrow for accessory to my 5/3/1, what set/rep range should I keep it to? I was thinking 4x6 or 5x3.

If he became SHW there's no doubt he would dethrone Bolton.

So sick, it makes me drool. :drooling:

I think I might be even more amazed he is so *****ing powerful and he trains @a commercial gym.

If I had the $, I would send him a power rack out of sheer recognition of his awesomeness. :shoot:

Do you know who his sponsors are, Chris?

LOL I love how he looks around at the end, wearing the glasses. I wonder if the small 130 lb women behind him knows that there's a world record deadlifter training right in front of her?

who DOES this guy train with?? and by how much does bolton outweigh him? Any news on when he's going to compete again?

No idea. I don't even know if he has any.

You ever think of sponsoring him?

I would certainly consider it. In my opinion he is one of the most impressive strength athletes on the planet.

Not only is that video very impressive it also makes me laugh.
1) That dude is pulling MASSIVE weights in this regular commercial gym, could you just imagine a trainer walking up to him "Ummm sir, just so you know deadlifts are bad for your back. If you want to work your back you should use the lat-pulldown machine".
2) He's wearing glasses! I've nothing against people that wear glasses but seeing them on a bloke who is picking up 420kg just looks funny lol.

WOW. This guy is not human. I bet he is a Terminator just biding his time until he gets word to start blowing **** up.

I always laugh when he makes a face at the camera - it is cool to see an elite guy just having fun. Very inspirational lifter.

OUTSTANDING DEADLIFTS. LIFT HEAVY AND CONVENTIONAL OR GO HOME.:omg::omg::omg:

It is absolutely insane.
Even more insane though is Mark Felix's reps of 460kg (1012lbs) off blocks.

Type in Mark Felix 460kg deadlift on google and you get the youtube video. It is for 3 reps off blocks. Mark has the strongest grip in the world. Holds the world record for the rolling thunder and has incredible back strength.

Great story...in a thread about Konstantinov

The man is the best dler in the world right now, along with Hawthorne. His next show out could be an all time WR. As for throwing Mark Felix in this thread? Comparing them with their contest deadlifts, its not even close, Konstantinovs is in a different planet. Another great conventional puller that pulls HEAVY every single week!!! CNS fried? LOL...nope.

Curious, what is the weight breakdown of those plates...never seen them. Green ones are 100lbs?

Ben Moore

Greens are 50 kilos or roughly 110lbs. Reds are 25 kilos or 55lbs
