    that oly lifter was ridiculous. If that was 5 45lb plates on each side that is possibly the most impressive lift I have ever seen.

    I made that video. I posted it a month back or so. The song is "Arch Enemy - Ravenous"

    That clean and jerk is about 540+, I believe.

    That's Yani Marchokov, a SHW from Bulgaria that now lifts for Quatar. The guys like a free agent. It really illustrates the professional nature of the sport everywhere other than the USA.

    I really can't tell what's on the bar... 8 reds and 2 blacks?

    duffman-

    that wasn't horrible form for strongman training. when picking up atlas stones or other odd shaped objects, you can't always keep a straight back, so you have to curve it. They were using that form also for the barbell clean and jerk equivalents to practice the form they'd have for atlas stone lifting, among other lifts.

    Whatever it is, it's probably very heavy and the guy is amped that his grip strength can statically hold it while he lifts it. Takes quite a bit of forearm strength to do that sorta stuff.

    Anyway, what's up with 1:45 CC?
