Freddi "Finsk Sisu" Smulter drug-tested single ply benchpress 395 kilos

Finnish IPF lifter/super stud Freddi "Finsk Sisu" Smulter recently did 870 lbs (395kg) in training at his gym Pighouse Gym.

20 kilos (approx 44 lbs) more than the current world record.

Freddi Smulter won the benchpress world championships in the SHW division in 2012.
But has recently focused mostly on raw lifting. Seems he's still in good shirted form.

Somebody is stealing the FREE Nextlifter software and trying to sell it.

Thanks to Blaine Sumner for giving me a heads ups. It seems somebody copied the FREE barload software from my website, claimed that he wrote it and is trying to sell it.
