In discussion of pound for pound best active power lifters (maybe even all time) Yury Belkin comes up. He has competed in knee wraps exclusively since leaving the IPF but soon he’ll be competing in sleeves and going up against John Haack who is another contender for P4P best.
Dunno where Belkin’s sleeve squat is going to end up but it looks to be much lower than his wrapped numbers. He just did a warm-up comp and missed 320kg on depth though it moved easy enough. He may look to break the sleeved records in either the 100kg class held by Cailer Woolam at 962.5kg or Jamal Browner with 990kg at 110kg.
He’s close. maybe capable of hitting 335kg / 230kg / 430kg at the most but that’ll be more than enough.
If he wanted 1000kg or 10x BW total in the 100kg weight class not so sure it’s there save high squats being passed.
What do you think?
EDIT Belkin just missed 435kg didn’t break the floor. 430kg probably an absolute max so probably capable of 415-425kg. Thought he would have more energy for DL with not having to squat over 400 but apparently not
