    430kg (948lbs) Deadlift (Check form. What do you think?)

    Just found this video on youtube searching for big ass deadlifts. Found this guy.

    Konstantins Konstantinovs

    his back was bent right over whilst doing these lifts. This guy is incredibly strong though!! He only weighs 275lbs!!
    So he's lifting 3.4 x BW which is astounding. RAW aswell.

    Wow hes so small, and doing so much! that is truly amazing.
    I am SO glad I'm female.
    Seriously - I had NO IDEA it was this complicated.
    I just tell my husband he makes love like a God, feed him a steak, and I'm done for the day. Super easy.

    There was some rounding, but still looks pretty good. Amazing stength.

    We went over this in the powerlifting thread as its an old video. He does have some upper back rounding but his lower back stays relatively straight. More often than not its recommended that you have some upper back rounding while deadlifting, it decreases the range of motion, but only if you can do it while keeping the lower back straight. The other option is that if you have a weak upper back, you start with your lower and upper back straight and just drive with the legs. If you have the upper back strength then pulling the shoulders back at the top of the lift isn't an issue.

    Some people don't consider a belt to be 'equipment' in the same way as a squat suit, bench shirt, etc.

    In most "raw" divisions, wearing a belt and wraps is ok. A suit or shirt is definately not.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    No worries, I didn't even think that didn't catch that, lol. I was actually mentioning for the benefit of the OP. Deadlifts suits are usually a bit different and being an Inzer one, its probably only single ply. I'm not sure of how many other types of deadlift suits there are, really.

    I'm not going to get into the equipment debate but needless to say that Andy Bolton's world record is only about 30lbs from that and Andy weighs ~30lbs more.

    The closer to the bar you are, the tighter you are and the better your leverage is.

    This is a good article to read on the variations of deadlift styles.

    He stands alot closer then I do, but im pretty much an all back puller and have found my stance/form that I currently use to be my strongest.

    On that note, thats an assload of weight to move even if your wearing a freaking triple ply super cheater cyborg attachment.

    Dave Tate says tall guys are the best pullers, makes sense watching this guy.
    It's easier to point out the differences between us than to admit the similarities.


    This body holding me, reminds me of my own mortality.

    Great vid. Slight rounding but otherwise perfect form.

    The thing I think is more crazy then that dead is his grip strength. I cant think of anyone that can hold onto THAT much weight without straps.

    Amazing.
