More (Super) Heavy Power Cleans:
- Bahador Moulaei with 222kg
- Hossein Rezazadeh with 220kg
- Evgeny Chigishev also with 220kg
- Andrei Chemerkin’s 230kg looks like a Power Clean too
Also check out his 260kg Clean & Jerk (heaviest C&J on video in 2013).
Wow. I see he’s been watching American highschool football players for his technique on these with that lateral split of the legs, haha.
Is there any news from Ruslan Nurudinov?
So far only selfies on his instagram: http://instagram.com/rnurudinov
He probably meant Albegov
No, I meant Nurudinov, current world champion in 105 kg category. Will he compete in this years world championships?

how is this even real? forgive me because i’m fairly new to weightlifting but how long ago was the first 500lb C&J? I thought it was alexeev which really wasn’t that long ago… and behdad just PC’d 232kg/511lbs?? How much further can the sport progress? unreal.
Not to be a debbie downer, but while Alekseyev was the first to CJ 500 lbs / 227 kgs in 1970, only 7 years later he CJed 256 kgs in 1977!
So in 1977, Alekseyev CJed 12 kilos more than anyone did in 2012 in London. I think 256 kgs is also Salimi’s career best, but we have seen him do 260 in training. Snatch is a different story, but Alekseyev broke something like 80 world records in just a few years. It doesn’t happen so much these days, and Salimi may just now getting to where Alekseyev was on CJ forty years ago, but he is more of a snatcher, and will likely push the records up further if politics or injuries don’t mess things up.
Gus Seford says
Alexeyev’s increase in the superheavy c&j and total over a 7-8 period is unmatched in any class Almost positive anyway. . And his 255 in Montreal 1976 stood as the Olympic record for 20 years. Not too many Olympic records have stood for that long.
What about Patera’s 220 kg power clean+front squat+press, way back in 1972. Jim Moser has it on video on YouTube.
that power output
