fake, the bar would bend to hell with that amount of weight…
Agreed. I mean an exception would be a quality powerlifting bar which had never been dropped or abused (as olympic bars are) - but why the hell would such a bar be in one of these Russian clubs?
Anyway, you can see below that the bar oscillation is very minimal with a good bar which is never dropped or jerked, or cleaned, or snatched - however this powerlifter dude actually appears to be squatting 400 just from the evident trauma which he is experiencing by simply supporting such a massive load.
For the Russian kid to do the above with minimal effort, at his size, would literally mean that he was He-Man re-incarnate. Would be interesting to know exactly how much it was though.
f0ck, that bar barely bent what so ever! lol
I guess the only legit thing is if they get anywhere near these in comp! Comp results are where it’s at
