Flawless form as always, would love to see him compete raw. Carl put some weight on the bar when you deadlift, it always looks like you are doing some token lift. Go for the record on your second attempt and then show us what you can really do on your third. J Hack ... all things are possible to him that believeth.

He won best lifter by 0.01 wilks point and got a European record.

It's almost a lost art as there are very few real competitions in PL these days.

He clearly had way more in the tank and it would be nice to see him actually push himself on the Deadlift.

The screen shot, shown above of Carl Christensen's World Record Squat is art. This photo was not taken by an artist or professional photographer, focused on capturing the perfect angle or image in an attempt to create art. The art was created when a World Class Powerlifter exhibited Squat perfection - with herculean weight for all of us to see. Thanks. Really Amazing. Congratulations Carl on your 2014 IPF World Championship victory and World Records. - Greg Stott TEAMiXL.com
