I haven’t seen Hicks’ second or third but he would’ve been mm away from reds for butt lift on his first attempt.
competition always does weird things to people.
thats why far and away most all time records are broken at backyard meets near where the lifter lives.

*edit*
can really see the effect now with deads. Odell missing 400kg, then Belkin missing 435kg
Do you mean Odell’s bench?

Skipped the press call.

I still can’t get over Belkins total at 105kg and 415kg deadlift.
On Yury, if I’ve read the dodgy google translation correctly he said that he got caught out by only having 5 minutes between either his last squat warm up and opener, or (less likely) between his opener and second.
Goes to show that you shouldn’t always train in a perfect world scenario as it rarely happens at comps! (I can vividly remember being at a comp when I first started and a lifter cracking the shits big time about how quick the flights were and how little rest they got between attempts)

Belkin sumo'd that deadlift, which makes me wonder how often he does them like that compared to conventional. I switched back to conventional but I like the movement with sumos. Would I be missing anything if I switched back to sumos and stuck with them?

I see some people refer to them online as a "sissy" lift. Why is that? Because the range of motion is shorter? I wouldn't say that about Belkin, gees, haha.

I’d be very surprised if even 10% of Belkins deadlifts were conventional, the man has mastered the art of sumo.

Yeah shorter range of motion, I personally find I can typically get a conventional up, when it gets to a grind though it becomes ugly, with a sumo if I haven’t got it, it simply won’t move off the floor.

Yeah in my limited experience, you can't fu** up a sumo as badly as you can fu** up a conventional. I find that appealing. I just wonder how functional the lift is. Not sure how many "functionally strong" and "balanced" lifters could pull what Belkin could though.

I recognise the name but have no idea who the guy is except that the last 3 times he’s popped up on a feed somewhere have been for injuring a bicep, ankle and now shoulder.
Guy appears strong but clearly he’s not all too bright lol.

He’s a genetically gifted freak and one of those that actually admits to test. Keeps hurting himself for videos.

I was just looking through that 'powerliftinglegends' account. There always seems to be form police ragging on these elite lifters, but it seems petty to me. Apparently this guy said himself he failed the lift by not locking out, but the fact it still leaves the floor at that amount is insane.
