The Next Siders?

Carl Yngvar Christensen is definitively a name for the future in IPF powerlifting! He is only 17 years old yet he just did an EASY squat double on 290 kg! He is probably shooting for the WR at 335 for under 18 this year. His bodyweight is currently at about 140 kg. He says his motto is to "Eat to failure!"

290 for an easy double:

320 easy:

320, different and better angle (two guys videotaped the same lift):

His form is world class for being only 17. definitely has a big future ahead of him

He is back! His new pr is 320! Seemed very easy as well!

320 from a different and better angle (two guys videotaped the same lift):

Looks like there’s 340-350kg there in the very near future. Crazy.

Yup. Seems like his gonna have no problem taking the world record :o
