2004 Olympics Clean and Jerk

Wow. I don’t thing I have ever seen anyone do this lift as smoothly as this guy, and with as much weight. Amazing.

lol almost everyone on this site has known about reza for a long time. He is just a strength/power freak, one of the best ever look for him to win this year also if he is healthy.

I have seen this video dozens of times. It’s always crazy to see how strong people are.

Well you should feel special for spending so much time on a forum. I’ll send the cookie in the mail. ; )

I am not a huge PW fan, but I have seen a couple of live meets, and a few YT video’s, but nothing like this guy. WOW, again.

Cool man. Yes strong and graceful, the first you can develop the latter you are born with.

you don’t have to spend time on the forum to know that guy, if you have been lifting for much at all you will know the big names in the sport.

Rezazadeh has the ability to clean and jerk 280kg he just needs to master the technique. His jerk is more like a push press.

Not only that, but it doesn’t take long to know that the sport is not “Olympic Powerlifting.” It is Olympic Weightlifting.

A little late…about 4 years. I look forward to watching your 2008 Beijing Olympic Powerlifting videos in 2012.

Thanks for the vid.

Pah that fat fuck is not functional

Look up a guy named Pyrros Dimas. I hear he’s an up-and-coming talent. He could be huge some day!

Aren’t you the same “genius” who argued for 20 pages that if Rezazadeh lost weight he would be stronger?

everytime i see that video i am just amazed. i know strong guys that cant deadlift that much, and he just picks it up and front squats it up like nothing. i have always been curious as to what reza can max clean because its evident that he had much more in the tank for the clean.

Dang dude u killed it with the title “Olympic Powerlifting”. ouch

Always impressed by Rezazadeh’s performances.

However I am always flat out leveled by the performance of the smaller weight classes.

I like to judge the awesomeness of an Olympic lifter by his Total divided by his Body weight.

Rez’s Olympic ratio: (472.5kg / 156.6kg) = 3.02

Compared to the Gold Medalist of the 77kg weight class Tener Sagir

Sagir’s Olympic ratio: (375/77) = 4.87

So pound for pound you get diminishing returns on lift numbers as you go up in weight. Which athlete is called “Strongest man in the world” Rezazadeh obviously, but which am I more impressed with? Sagir.

Just some food for thought.

Cut him some slack. He is probably from Texas and calls all soda “Coke”.
