Yes this lift will be counted as both the alltime raw record and alltime record period as it did exceed both with or with out equipment. Furthermore, this contest was sanctioned by HARDCORE Powerlifting.

i was at this meet and it was an incredible line up of lifters, action nonstop! i have been lifting for quite some time and have seen some amazing lifts. i was positioned right behind the side judge,(behind him just in case a weight came flying off) watched them try and load 1010 lbs and because of the number of weights being used it would extend too far out so instead of backing it down, benni bumped it up to 1015. the power he displayed pulling that weight is by far the most incredible display of power i have ever seen and i still am having trouble believing my eyes! special kudos to seanzilla for one heck of a show!

One suggestion to Sean Katterle is to start using kilos at his meets so you won't run out of room on the bar and to ensure the accuracy of the weight since pound wts are rarely accurate.

Nothing kills American meets like using kilos. None of the spectators have any idea of the weight being lifted, and in some cases the lifters don't unless they have the conversion charts in front of them. There is nothing innately "inaccurate" about pounds as opposed to kilograms.

Totally agree. I will say this as a many time spotter loader it is much easier to load kilo plates as opposed to loading the pound plates. In the WABDL we use kilos, but we always announce in kilos and pounds because you are so right.... the audience does not have a clue what a lifter is lifting if the MC only announces in kilos. That has always been a pet peeve of mine.

Of course, as long as they display the weight in pounds and announce, there is no problem with using kilo plates.

This is America and we don't need no stinkin kilos. We have to use their weights over there they can use ours over here. I'm sure the weights were accurate and to suggest otherwise is pure speculation. And kilos or pounds don't make a difference for bar space, what matters is how wide the plates are. J Hack.

One of the most impressive lifts ever...amazing display of strength and very clean.

Next time your in the gym go check the weight on several 45 lb plates. I would say 9 times out of 10 they will be off by 1-2 lbs either way. Pound plate manufacturers don't make their plates to be precision milled like kilo plates. When I put an Eleiko or Ivanko on a digital scale it weighs exactly what it says on the plate. A 25kg plate will be right on the money. Not 25.1 or 24.9. There are also bar loading programs that can be projected up on a screen. It all makes a more professional image instead of garage looking meet. 100% Metric American!

Yes "cheap brand" gym plates may be off some but Ivanko and other quality brand pound plates are just as acurate as the kilo plates they put out.

Not true! I've seen some very inaccurate pound plates from Ivanko at a gym I used to train at. There were 45 lb plates that actually weighed 42 lbs and others weighed 47 lbs and everything in between. The gym owner called the Ivanko dealer and returned the plates. So even a company like Ivanko can sometimes put out inaccurate pound plates. All the reason to use kilo plates and toss your pound plates in the trash. By the way, that was a fkn unbelievable pull by Magnusson!

haha come on man you are comparing gym cheapo plates to calibrated meet plates. Of course there is a difference, it has nothing to do with kilos or pounds come on.

I care. If you found out he actually pulled 15 lbs less would it matter to you? I would think so. But of course whatever was stamped on the plate makes it true. I guess its better not to know and spoil the fun of breaking an all time record. It is what it is.

this is it... this all takes the cake. no matter who you are, no matter what you do, people will try and tear you down. they can't complain about the knee's being locked or shoulders being rounded. can't complain about a hitch or a ramp. can't complain about him losing his grip or a quick down command. Nope, they complain about the PLATES. The plates... they are complaining about the plates. "kilo's are better", "manufacuters don't care about pounds they just pour'em and sell'em out the back of a truck". Plates? your complaining about plates? next thing you know someone will compare where he did this pull. Was it closer to the equator or on top of a mountain? cause ya know weights are heavier at the equator or is it sea level? quick! someone pull up a graphic map of the earth and let's see if the geography made the 1015 actually weigh 1% less! add that to the fact that 100 pounds were actually only 92lbs plates... minus the additional 1% of geography plus factor in the rotation of the earth.... holy crap! Benni only pulled 505lbs! Shut...up.

you guys are fighting over calibrated vs non-calibrated plates. Not all kilo plates will be dead nuts, just as it is possible to calibrate plates in pounds. Its the extra time and money that gets put into meet plates. I'm willing to bet those 100s were calibrated or low deviation plates. Since it was an all time record, it should've been broken down and weighed exactly for the books.

To Mr. NASH-T: Not one person suggested that this was not a 1015 lb deadlift. That was just a random little offshoot from talking about kilo vs pound plates. Calm down. Now, to everyone else, Kilo plates are thinner and heavier. They make sense to use if there's the possibility of needing to fill a bar. Just announce what the weights are in lbs as well. I don't think calibrated kilo plates are any more accurate than calibrated pound plates. That seems absurd.

Good grief, read before you post. jdesja2 re-read Ironbug's post then tell me again that not one person is claiming this was not a 1015lbs deadlift.

Submitted by jdesja2 on
That is not a personal attack on the credibility of Magnusson's lift. He's just saying he cares about the accuracy of weights enough to talk about it in this thread. You're misinterpreting what IronBug's saying.
