List of world records in Olympic weightlifting
Amit bumped into elite-level powerlifter Brandon Lilly. They started talking gym numbers and realized that although Amit didn't train specifically for powerlifting, he was so strong he'd automatically be ranked as one of the strongest lifters in his category.
The thing I could be best at was right underneath my nose the whole time! The thought of being judged in an objective sport where only my performance and ability mattered really spiked my interest," Amit said. He'd compete in the 90 kg pound raw class, meaning no wraps or special suits are allowed. He offered to give me all of the support I needed, so we laid out a plan in painstaking detail.
Amit Sapir is obviously an elite athlete who's chasing world records and bodybuilding titles. The majority of people would only need the recommended label amounts of these supplements. Still, it's interesting to take a peek inside the supplement plan of someone who's both a top bodybuilder and one of the world's strongest powerlifters.
He has three servings immediately after weigh-in, then one serving about every hour until the meet. It was a tough journey to Australia. Amit had three surgeries during his preparation — left biceps tendon, right biceps tendon, and pec major.
Undeterred, he'd simple train one-handed until his injured side healed. At the meet, his first attempt at the world record, pounds, failed. A few reassuring words from Ed Coan calmed Amit down and on his second attempt he broke the record. On the third attempt, he broke his own record with pounds. Amit was the best in the world.Ahmed Michael Kuhns.

He is credited for the biggest raw squat and raw powerlifting total ever performed by a drug tested athlete, regardless of weight class,  as well as the greatest raw deadlift by an American citizen. In weightliftingHenry was a three-time U.
National Weightlifting Champion, an American Open winner a two-time U. Henry was born in Silsbee, Texas. Henry played football in high school until his senior year, when he strained ligaments in his wrist during the first game of the year and scored below on the SAT. At the Texas High School Powerlifting Championships in AprilTerry Todda professor of kinesiology at the University of Texas at Austin and former weightlifter, spotted Henry and persuaded him to go to Austin after he graduated to train in the Olympic style of weightlifting.
Mastering the technique of weightlifting usually takes many years of practice, but Henry broke four national junior records in weightlifting after only eight months of training.
At the age of 19,  Henry had already managed to qualify for the weightlifting competition at the Summer Olympicswhere he finished tenth in the Super- Heavyweight class.
In late he took the win at the USA Weightlifting American Open  and further proved his dominance on the American soil by winning not only the U. National Weightlifting Championshipsbut also the U.
Olympic Festival Championships in and Having reached the pinnacle of weightlifting on a National and continental level, he competed again in powerlifting and shocked the world by winning the ADFPA U. National Powerlifting Championships in with a National Weightlifting Championships in the Spring of for a third time. In the months prior to the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, GeorgiaHenry received more attention and publicity than any lifter in recent United States history.

Career aggregate Powerlifting Total best official lifts — Nationals, but prior to the Olympics '96 . At the pay-per-view event, SummerSlam in AugustHenry came to the aid of Jake Roberts who was suffering indignity at the hands of Lawler. Henry's career was then stalled as, over the next year, he took time off to heal injuries and engage in further training. In Novemberhe returned to the ring, making his televised return the following month. During the next year, Henry gave himself the nickname "Sexual Chocolate", adopting a ladies' man character.
He first resumed his storyline with former enemy Chynabut it ended with her betraying him in a controversial angle including a transvestite.
The night after he tried to make up with Brown  and later in the week claimed to be a sex addict  resulting in him attending a sex therapy session a week later where he claimed that he lost his virginity at eight years old to his sister, and had just slept with her two days ago.
After this twist, Henry turned into a fan favoriteand was seen on television romancing WWF veteran wrestler Mae Young as part of the "Sexual Chocolate" character. Four months prior to the contest, Henry began lifting the heaviest of weights and trained for the first time since for a major lifting competition. On 22, February in Columbus, Ohio the competition, consisting of four events, designed to determine the lifter with the greatest overall body power, began. Henry proved to be worthy of the title "World's Strongest Man" not only by winning the contest, but also by achieving it in record time.
By doing so he was again seen as the legit "strongest man in the world" by many lifting experts for a second time since In AugustHenry returned to WWE television on the Raw roster as a heel where he found some success as a member of "Thuggin' And Buggin' Enterprises", a group of African Americans led by Theodore Long who worked a race angle in which they felt they were victims of racism and were being held down by the "white man".A squat is a strength exercise in which the trainee lowers their hips from a standing position and then stands back up.
During the descent of a squat, the hip and knee joints flex while the ankle joint dorsiflexes ; conversely the hip and knee joints extend and the ankle joint plantarflexes when standing up. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the lower body muscles as well as developing core strength. The primary agonist muscles used during the squat are the quadriceps femoristhe adductor magnusand the gluteus maximus.
The squat is one of the three lifts in the strength sport of powerliftingtogether with the deadlift and the bench press. It is also considered a staple exercise in many popular recreational exercise programs. The movement begins from a standing position. Weight is often added; typically in the form of a loaded barbell but dumbbells and kettlebells may also be used. When a barbell is used, it may be braced across the upper trapezius muscle, termed a high bar squator held lower across the rear deltoids, termed a low bar squat.
Squats can be performed to varying depths. The competition standard is for the crease of the hip top surface of the leg at the hip joint to fall below the top of the knee;  this is colloquially known as "parallel" depth. From shallowest to deepest, these other standards are: bottom of hamstring parallel to the ground;  the hip joint itself below the top of the knee, or femur parallel to the floor;  and the top of the upper thigh i.

As the body descends, the hips and knees undergo flexionthe ankle extends dorsiflexes and muscles around the joint contract eccentricallyreaching maximal contraction at the bottom of the movement while slowing and reversing descent.
The muscles around the hips provide the power out of the bottom. If the knees slide forward or cave in then tension is taken from the hamstrings, hindering power on the ascent. Returning to vertical contracts the muscles concentricallyand the hips and knees undergo extension while the ankle plantarflexes.
Common errors of squat form include descending too rapidly and flexing the torso too far forward. Rapid descent risks being unable to complete the lift or causing injury. This occurs when the descent causes the squatting muscles to relax and tightness at the bottom is lost as a result.
Over-flexing the torso greatly increases the forces exerted on the lower back, risking a spinal disc herniation. Another error is the raising of heels off the floor, which reduces the contribution of the gluteus muscles.
Agonist muscles . A power cage can be used to reduce risk of injury and eliminate the need for a spotting partner. By putting the bar on a track, the Smith machine reduces the role of hip movement in the squat and in this sense resembles a leg press.
Other equipment used can include a weight lifting belt to support the torso and boards to wedge beneath the ankles to improve stability and allow a deeper squat weightlifting shoes also have wooden wedges built into the sole to achieve the same effect.
Wrist straps are another piece of recommended equipment; they support the wrist and help to keep it in a straightened position. They should be wrapped around the wrist, above and below the joint, thus limiting movement of the joint.
Heel wedges and related equipment are discouraged by some as they are thought to worsen form over the long term. Although the squat has long been a basic element of weight training, it has not been without controversy over its safety. Some trainers allege that squats are associated with injuries to the lumbar spine and knees.Vlad Alhazov - 525 kg (1157 lbs) All Time RAW Squat World Record!
Some coaches maintain that incomplete squats those terminating above parallel are both less effective and more likely to cause injury  than a full squat terminating with hips at or below knee level.T he Arnold expo happened recently and scrolling through my social media feed I saw several incredible lifts including a few new all-time world records.
In addition I thought it would be cool to have a resource where the records are listed along with video links so you can see the mighty feat yourself. I want to give a shout out to powerliftingwatch. One problem with powerlifting is that we are not perfectly unified.
It would be great for me to simply list the best squat, bench, and deadlift and be done with it like one might do the for the Olympic Lifts but alas in powerlifting we have several divisions.
Is it a tested lift or not? Was it done in gear? How strict was the federation? As I believe multiply lifting is essentially a different animal I am not going to list the multiply records here, they can be found on powerliftingwatch. Here are some All-Time Powerlifting World Records along with a few other videos of contested lifts thrown in for good measure.
I believe it was performed in It is exciting to see what the maximum that humans are capable of and it is fun to see the records grow over time. What will be the next all-time record to fall?
What will be the biggest squat, bench, and deadlift we see in this century? Is there anyone alive now that clean and press over lbs? Only time will tell. The clean and press video you have is from world championships. You should also include the log lift world record. Current record is lbs by Zydrunas Savickas. I miss your class. I had so much fun doing it….
I tried some stuff from a doctor…phentermine….
I lost a lot of weight but way to much muscle…….This is a list of world records in Olympic weightlifting. These records are maintained in each weight class for the snatch lift, clean and jerk lift, and the total for both lifts.
