Ed Coan's 220 Class IPF World Record Broken

Create: 11/13/2005 - 13:07
Ivan Freydun of Russia totalled 2,283 pounds or 1,037.5 kilograms in the 220 pound weight class at the IPF Worlds in Miami, Florida. The 2,283 total sets a new IPF world record and surpasses the former record held by Ed Coan. A poster at Gibson Powerlifting suggests that because of gear differences between when Coan lifted and today that surpassing the record isn't a big deal.

I don't care because the gear advances still put Coan 5-7% ahead of this lifter.

A couple Go Heavy posters agree with that:

Not with the same equipment that Coan used. The gear in today even single ply is way stronger then that used in the past.

Without the bench shirt advancement, Freydun doesn't break Coan's record.

Jason Beck counters:

It doesn't matter because the record fell

The record did indeed fall and that's a big congrats to Freydun, as the record as stood for 11(?) years all the while gear has been advancing. Admittedly Coan's squat and dead were both MUCH higher than Freyduns but that's why they call it a total. Coan will still hold the squat and deadlift records and those don't look to be in trouble anytime soon.

Coan's 858 pound deadlift and 931 pound squat still reign as IPF World Records. During this meet, Freydun mangaged a 814 deadlift and 831 squat. His big World Record bench of 638 pounds was very much key to earning the World Record total.

Go to the library like we did in the old days. run around in the winter in sandels and a loin clothe. Thats what real men do. forget your cell phone, that not what a real man uses. car use? screw that, walk like jesus did back in the day. That was a real raw dawg man. No? didnt think so. the record was broken. thats what records are for.
