Misha 753 Deadlift x 10 Reps

Unbelievable!!

I have ever increasing manmiration for this guy

doesn’t count, he’s wearing straps!

Take that down before we are reminded that this is not “top level” for a guy his size…

And imagine how many he could do if he didnt spend all that time in the crouched position!

oly lifter, doesn’t count

Wtf… This guys is like pullin it all soft and shit with 750 pounds for 10 reps. The last rep is the only one where it looks like he’s even having to try. If you censored out the edges of the bar you’d think there wasn’t hardly any weight on there lol.

No fist pump bro

I bet he does Crossfit.

I wonder what his warm up is like. Bar x 1, 100kg x 1, 200kg x 1, 342 x 10?

As an overall powerlifter, no, he’s not. Don’t see why some people gotta be all booty-tickled by that fact.

It’s still very impressive.

What the fuck are you guys on about?

His total is ~2200lbs. Last time I checked the raw world record (in any weight class) was like 2300lbs.

But, yes, nah he isn’t very strong for a powerlifter. LOL.

That’s a retarded amount of strength. The fact that he did them with a pause between each rep is even more impressive.

actually he’s pulled 415kg/916lbs before, thats top level for any size. aside from bolton, KK, and benni there aren’t many higher than that.

Why does he crouch or squat like that before pulling? It looks interesting. Like doing that would be harder or at least technically better for the low back or something?

Yeah, sometimes people have super skewed views of what strong actually is. Misha is the most versitile strength athlete on the planet. He dominates at everything. 900 + deadlift and a 200+ kg snatch! Good luck finding vids of any powerlifters or anyone else pulling 750 for reps like that without a belt or suit.

I didn’t say it was weak…but come on, without wraps, the world record for 220’s is over 30 lbs more than Misha’s, who weighs 130 lbs more. The SHW class, which of course Misha would fall under, has a WR squat over 180 lbs more than Misha’s. So is it a lot of weight for most people? Yes. Is it super impressive by high level PL standards? No.

Yes I saw that but I don’t get it… he’s like 100lbs below the record? 100lbs isn’t nothing at that level but at the same time he is not a powerlifter. He is a jack of all trades but also incredibly good at all of them.

H4M seems to think the ‘jack of all trades’ counts for shit cos this is the PL forum not jack of all trades forum. Also that from a PL perspective, he is more of a DL specialist as the other 2 lifts are not as impressive.

I can see what he means, although I don’t necessarily agree.
