What/Who has the Biggest IPF Squat?


#1

just curious, I KNOW I could probably find it with a little effort, but i am sure many here probably know.

thanks in advance.


#2

didn’t cartwright just set a single ply squat record? Not sure if it was IPF or not

I really am not sure. IPF’s site sucks for browsing the records.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syAOuFBVtww&feature=related (Andrey Malanichev, 460KG squat)

However, I ran into this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXuuLiEN3JM (Brian Siders, 460KG squat) The announcer mentions how it’s a “world record squat”, but if Andrey Malanichev’s holds the record, at 460kg, then how is Siders’s squat a WR? (Although, it doesn’t matter anyway because he bombed out on bench)


#4

Shane Hamman. USA. 1008 pounds. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!


#5

Probably because Russia was banned, so an RPF event doesn’t count towards world records during that time.

Oh, and could it be Shane Hamman?


#6

Malanichev actually did 470 kg this year, but the russians can’t set WRs at the moment due to their suspenseion. Malanichev was recently banned for life though, so I guess we won’t be seeing him setting any records in the IPF.

Siders’ 460 squat would have been a WR, but he bombed out in the bench, so that didn’t count either. Pretty sure Shane Hamman’s 455 kg is still standing, though Siders will probably get it officially soon.
