Posted by Jason Manenkoff of World Powerlifting Now and Iron Arena: "And "Fightclub" has begun. At I sit here at 3:49am EST this is the most competitive 74kg/163lb weight class in the IPF EVER. The squats have now concluded. Taylor Atwood went 3/3 in the squat finishing with a 265.5kg/584lb IPF WR which lasted all of one minute before Japan's Yoshihiro Higa was successful with 270kg/595lbs. This is roughly 10kg over the previous IPF WR. Based on prognosis we have Kjell Nyhagebråten Bakkelund (Norway) who went 3/3 in the squat finishing with 247.5kg/545lbs leads the pack by 23kg's with a 736kg/1622lb total which would obliterate the current total. He is OPENING with a 177.5kg/391 bench and 311kg/685 deadlift! CURRENT IPF WR Hrynkevich-Sudnik Aliaksandr Belarus 1976 73.76 730.0 25.06.2016 Killeen / U.S.America"
