Proudly sponsored by Titan Support Systems Inc. Agreed! How could Garry Frank's breaking either the 2500,2600,2700 and 2800 barrier not be included on this poll!

Kennelly is my favorite, but Bolton is the best here. You know it's the main feat when you are the only one EVER in any weight class, division, or federation to have a grand for the DL in history.

I really like Thompson's 286 bench at 132, but I've got to go with the mighty Konstantinovs. A 939 deadlift at 282 bwt. beltless. BELTLESS! What a statement of brutal strength.

[quote=Rich]boltons 1003 not 1008[/quote] he's done both: 1003 and 1008 3 years apart nonetheless. Brian Scwab has also put up some pretty outrageous numbers for a lightweight. You also gotta give Becca some major points for CRUSHING the ladies numbers. never in my wildest dreams would I think a woman could outbench me by 150 pounds!

really tough call. I voted for Siders 2601 but I could have almost gone with Bolton's 1008 deadlift ,Andrey Malanichev 1,036 SQ squat Jaroslaw Olech 804 SQ, Konstantin Konstantinovs 939 DL Raw, Oleksandr Kutcher total 2,171 or Sergey Fedosienko 1576 pound total.

How can it get any better than this: Konstantin Konstantinovs (308) 939 DL Raw....If I am not mistaken, this was also with out a belt!

[quote=Anonymous]How can it get any better than this: Konstantin Konstantinovs (308) 939 DL Raw....If I am not mistaken, this was also with out a belt![/quote] It can get better by lifting more weight. Specifically, 1008 lbs by Andy Bolton. Let me guess - KK could be the best deadlifter of all time, he just doesn't wanna. OK.

[quote=Anonymous]How can it get any better than this: Konstantin Konstantinovs (308) 939 DL Raw....If I am not mistaken, this was also with out a belt![/quote] So we now give points for not wearing belts? All raw competitions allow belts. Damn strong deadlift but it ain't 1008 yet.

Jennifer Thompson 20% better than any raw coeficient ever, that's ever and done in an IPF meet.

Frankl's total at 198 broke the alltime 198, 220, and tied the 242 alltime total records. How can that not be winning. Not only is that the best total ever at that weight, but for that division and two above it!

His records will be beaten by himself or someone else in better gear in a few years. Just depends on the new gear. Andy's deadlift will not be matched possibly ever. You can wear the best deadlift suit made and it will not matter. Even the Raw guys can't say anything. For the guys that say KK was better cause Andy pulled in a suit than why doesn't KK do it? It adds so much KK should be able to 1000lbs when ever he wants.

1000+ Deadlift has been done by only one man. EVER! He has done it on two occassions. Not only was he the first he is the ONLY. Formulas, totals, and big numbers are all cool, but it is rare in this sport that we have a First, and ONLY with no other challenger in sight. Andy's deadlifts are THE accomplishment of the decade!

I voted for Ryan Celli. His total at the RUM broke a 30 year old record held by powerlifting great Larry Pacifico. I agree that gear records will be broken frequently, but raw records are tough to beat and will stand along time.

I voted for boltons dead, but what really sticks in my mind or moreless burned in my mind is watching kutcher grind out 793 dead at 165

To echo the words of a great song & movie..... "There can only be one..." Andy Boltons 1008lbs deadlift.

Without a doubt the greatest feat of the decade must go to Bolton's 1,008 pull; you know, the deadlift, the one of the three movements that hasn't been bastardized by equipment over the past decade!
