This is very interesting. Andrey answers a lot of questions about training and some of the other things he does. It would be nice if less people were disrespectful and didn't talk about dumb things, but a lot of the things he answers are interesting.
I think some of the most interesting things in here are that he says that he only does squats, benches, and deadlifts (sumo and conventional), but no accessory lifts, and has always trained this way. Also, that he wasn't unusually strong to start with (he says that 50kgs. was hard when he first tried it at 14 or 15 in both the bench and squat). He runs 6-8kms twice per week, which is rather unusual in powerlifting, especially in the heavy weight classes.
And mostly, that he squatted 1014lbs. raw even though he had a thigh injury before the meet (I'm assuming this means quad, but could be hamstring or groin or something else). Yet he still made that weight look so easy.
Best competition lifts:
650lbs. raw squat
441lbs. raw bench
580lbs. raw deadlift
1650lbs. raw total
Couldn't believe this part:
"The sheer speed in the accent of your record squat was amazing, other extraordinary strong squatters tend to grind through their lifts, yours was incredibly fast and smooth with no sticking point, what in your training to do attribute this to?"
"Actually, I thought I squat slowly. I don't do anything special to squat fast. It just comes out that way"
