He deadlifts about 946 pounds in the third attempt, his technique is very particular.

Why is his belt so high?

It is acceptable to round your upper back as long as the lower back retains it's tightness. A lot of the heavier pullers do this. It's not illegal or dangerous if you know how to do it correctly.

You're right, though most aren't actually rounding their upper back as much as it looks like. Most of the big deadlifters are just rolling their shoulders forward and it looks more rounded.

Well a quick search for "Konstantin" gives nothing but my own post and 3 logs.

I just made a search for "Konstantinovs" and it gives 1 different result. It's hard to tell what the real spelling of his name is.

Unbelievable! I believe he has perfect form too! How much does he weight?
