Video: Koklyaev Strength Exhibition


Was lucky enough to be at the Misha Koklyaev exhibition in Glasgow, Scotland. 13/8/2010

  • 270kg jerk from behind the neck (a new pb)
  • 400kg deadlift x 3reps.
  • 290kg no-hands squat (world record)
  • 190kg snatch (25kg more than ever been snatched on Scottish soil before). With a donation of some money (and a cake!) at the platform to show appreciation! A definite conntender for WSM 2010.

A great bloke with lots of stories throughout.

This is some of the warmups leading up to and including the biggest lifts...

Absolutely monstrous. Incredible deadlifting. Didn't he have a back trauma not long ago?


Torn bicep, no?


I know he tore his bicep, I saw this video and assumed he had done something to his back...

My bigest deadlift for eight months after a trauma 360 kg / 792 lb

But I suppose he could have been talking about his bicep there...
Anyway, he's healthy now, and a solid contender for WSM 2010.


He was talking about his bicep in that video. He also had a bad car wreck sometime there after he was hospitalized for.


Thanks for posting. This guy is incredible. What a role model. No matter how heavy he goes his form is always perfect. I've never seen him do a bad rep. I like the way he starts his deads from a full squat, maybe thats why his form is so good, he starts each rep from scratch and he's got a 210kg+ snatch. Unbelievable!


Have u seen this?
