Awesome. Hossein Reza Zedeh’s world record Clean & Jerk of 263 kilos (580lbs!).

There are some great slow action shots of the top 3 lifters – watch the form, 1st pull, 2nd pull, the catch, the front squat out of the hole, the adjustment of the hands, and finally, the dip and split jerk.

    My abs hurt soooooo bad. I can’t tell if it was the 150 abmat situps or the Oly lifting work, but I am wrecked. Looking forward to more of the same on SAT.

    Unbelievable. Until you attempt to do some of these lifts you have no idea how strong and what great athletes these guys are.
