500lb Continental Clean?


Has this been done?

Vids of guys on YouTube doing up to 440. Most of these the clean portion looks fairly easy.

Some people might say what's the point of contintentaling more than you can press but it's 500lb ...


I think it is pretty much fact Zydrunas could clean AND press a 500lb axle but he just slowly adds a few kilos to his world records every time it comes up in a comp.



Gettin' closer.


Zydrunas is a monster.

Im sure many people can do a 500lb continental clean, just doesn't come up that often because of the press.


he was a beast this year


And he does that crap almost as a strict press.


Not an axle but it's an excuse to post it:

blows my mind
