A lot has been said of the battle between Green and Khudayarov. Either way you look at it, it will be a huge collision course for both of them! That being said, as of late Khudayarov has been lifting some unbelievable weights almost unimaginable! Hows a 1014 training squat at somewhere under 260 grab you?
BOAD owner Jared Daigre made his platform appearance at the USPA Battle of Beasts 10/25/14. He lifted at 165 and made lifts of 473 in the squat sans knee wraps, hit a 330 bench and pulled 573 before missing 600 twice! His total of 1377 places him in the top twenty in the nation with a 15th ranking!
At the recent USAPL Georgia and Southern states meet Keith made some awesome lifts! He made an American (USAPL) record 512 squat, benched 330 and pulled 562 to hit a 1405 number one ranked total in the US regardless of federation. Just ahead of lifters Joe Morrow and Shawn Frasquillo!
A great performance by one of the nation's best lifters: Garrett Griffin!
1752@197 without wraps went 6 for 9. Vid of all attempts, small error on 3rd bench coast me 10lb meet PR total. #2 ranked total in country in 198wt class. Not happy, but I have confidence I can hit 1800!! Thanks to everyone that supports me.
Here's recent footage of Orlando Green getting back to what he does best... deadlift!
"I haven't pulled heavy in a few months because of a couple nagging injuries. Today the stars were aligned perfect, so I decided to test it out. I only did 705lbs for 5reps, but It felt pretty good. Check out the stars floating in this video, it's like looking through the eyes of a beast!!!! When was the last time you've seen stars lol????"
"I became the lightest person in USAPL history to squat over 800 pounds raw no knee sleeves. I was very happy with my squat, I beat the open american squat record by 38 pounds. Definitely had little more in me with the squat. Now on deadlifts I was hoping for a close 800lbs dead, but opened nice and light so I could ensure that my squat record would count.
Matt Quinn hit 1870 @ 242 at the 10/25/14 SPF Irontoberfest! Matt went 705 in the squat, 465 bench and then pulled 700 to give him the 13th spot over all on the current raw/ wraps rankings!
In February earlier this year at RUM VII, Paul Nguyen established himself as one of the best deadlifters in the world by breaking the existing world record deadlift of 716 held by the undisputed king of the 165ers Vashon Perryman. Perryman used to being so far ahead, had some thunder taken from him when Paul pulled a 717 lb lift! Today at ths SPF Brute Strength Halloween Howl Paul proved it was no fluke! Just missing weight at 167 pounds Paul pulled 650, 720 and finally a 740 pound lift that by formula currently is the best raw deadlift on the planet! Paul took it easy in the squat (injury) and still made a 500 lb squat. He benched 325 just missing 350 before he began his pulls.
Here is a clip of Alexander Ermachenko benching 106.0kg @ 48kg (233.6 lbs @ 105#) for a new 100% RAW Ukrainian National Record. Ermachenko competed at last weekend's Championship of Ukraine hosted last weekend in Odessa and accomplished this lift on his second attempt.
