That's unbeleivable!

Hey I often wonder, what happens if a guy fails or has a problem getting it back to the supports?

Amazingly strong!

Looks like he is going do develop bad knees by bouncing out of the bottom like that.

so this kid is really only 19 ?
unbelievably strong, I take it he trains for Oly style?
what's his background, how long he's been training like this? at 19 I guess not too many years?

He is an Olympic lifter. You have to be able to tolerate a bounce like that when you perform a max squat clean or snatch, thus that is how they train. It isn't overly dangerous for them because they have gradually worked up to the heavy loads they use in training and have allowed the connective tissues time to acclimate.

His coach said he trains 2 times a day, 7 days a week using the Bulgarian style. Max effort every session on cleans, jerks, snatches, squats, front squats and power variations of the olympic lifts. His coach trained and lived with Krastev.

Oh okay. When I used to do deep one legged squats I would bounce out of the bottom, and I had constant knee pain; as soon as I stopped doing those. The pain weight away.

Heh you have to hear the guy's coach talk. The first time he snatched x kg. he tried to weight 56 times till he got it. Now that is dedication to a number!

Which brings up a great point for powerlifting. A lot of Louie's system is based on both the Russian and Bulgarian systems. The reason Louie doesn't max out out every session like that is because the powerlifts don't lend themselves to it. The powerlifts stress the musculature and body in general to a much greater degree by design than Olympic lifts.

OK now I have to ask... so how much juice this kid shooting?
on top of those insanely big numbers he's putting up at tender age of 19, he works out 2 x each day , every day!!
he's not natural.

I hope you aren't serious... I mean it is entirely possible that he is using steroids but i wouldn't jump the gun and call him on it.

Youth and genetics have a great deal to do with recovery. If I'm not mistaken don't most Russian/ Bulgarian/ Eastern Bloc and Chinese Olympic lifters train twice a day? If these guys are doing it I don't understand why it is suddenly impossible for an American teenager to do the same thing.

Regardless, I wouldn't proclaim unnatural unless I was absolutely sure.

I completely agree. You can't just make that statement unless you have some facts behind it. I'm pretty sure most olympic lifters train multiple times per day and almost everyday of the week. I know Fuzzy, who posts here, is training to one day compete in the olympics and I'm pretty sure he has said this too.

Don't just assume that because he is stronger than you that he must be shooting up. (In regards to Rugby Dad's statement)

and why not point fingers? can you proclaim natural? are you absolutely sure? I don't care if he's natural or not, he's got some amazing accomplishments. Watch Bigger Stronger Faster and you'll have a new idea about steroids in the olympics.

Fuzzy doesn't train to a max effort twice a day, every day, 7 days a week either. And he's also not ATFing 772 raw either..

I could actually believe a drug free 772 raw claim easier than I can believe training maximal efforts twice a day, every day, 7 days a week and being drug free.. When does he recover? All the calories in the world can't juice up the CNS that fast.

Then again, we also don't know his entire routine. He could be doing one or two lifts twice a day with only one ME lift.. with a very low volume and high intensity, I'm sure he coudl go about training this way, until his body burns out.. which it will...

Hard to determine natural or unnatural really.. but I'll call it like I see and and agree with Rugby Dad..

Regardless, does it matter? That's a ****ing sick lift!!

JSully, I agree that it doesn't matter and that it is an amazing lift either way. I was just trying to say that there was no reason for asking that. Whether he uses or not, he is still lifting the weight and there is no point in taking away from that accomplishment. Innocent until proven guilty.

Well said... This is not a anabolic debate. We have a forum for that as well!

But they do hit a 1rm 5+ times a week in the squat it seems.

Maybe these numbers he hits in training aren't as close to his max as some think.

IMO, even if steroids are used, it doesn't take away from the lift.

Regardless of what kind of assistance you get, you've got to break ****ing balls to nail a 772 squat and bury it like that.

I understand where you're coming from and there are different ways to ask IMO and it's very difficult to tell the demeanor when not in person. I can almost immediately spot when someone's on and I'll ask them in a manner tha is not derrogatory. That's where inexperienced guys fail, when they're like "oh, but you're on steroids huh?"..

Like I said, I don't care one way or another, thats why they have tested and untested federations.

I think this is the 30th time I've watched that vid and **** I'm blown away every time.. so awesome

I thought the Bulgarian program was 6 days a week not 7 days a week so they do have one day of rest.


Here is an example of a Bulgarian program (preparation of the National Team for the 1980 Olympics):

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
09:00-10:00 am: Snatch
10:30-11:30 am: Clean and Jerk
11:30-12:30 pm: Clean pulls
05:00-06:00 pm: Clean and Jerk
06:30-07:30 pm: Snatch
07:30-08:00 pm: Front Squat
08:00-08:30 pm: Snatch Pulls

Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday

09:00-10:00 am: Snatch from the hang
10:30-11:30 am: Partial Jerks
11:30-12:00 pm: Back Squat
12:00-12:30 pm: Power Clean
12:30-01:30 pm: Snatch and Clean Pulls
