From the 2016 Junior Worlds … It’s not always big lifts that you see in training halls. Here are team Korea’s junior lifters with Paused Overhead Squats and Paused Snatch Grip Deadlifts (with up to 1 minute long holds!). This was after they competed. Lifters: Jeongseon Mun, Seunghwan Kim, Jongkyoung Kim, Gilbeom Kang
Meanwhile in China … After we saw Lu Xiaojun do this exercise with 220kg, here is Liao Hui (69kg) with 200kg Bottom Up Overhead Squats (Dead OHS). More: Watch Liao’s 400kg Front Rack Hold.
Meanwhile in Russia … Nadezhda Evstyukhina shows Snatch assistance exercise. Looks like a warm-up exercise for her. She writes that it is useful for improving the Deep Squat Position during the catch, as well as overhead stability. Note that even with her 135kg Snatch, she uses “only” 70kg (or 65 if that’s a women’s bar). […]

Meanwhile at Catalyst Atheletics … Brian Wilhelm does a 200kg Overhead Squat. I asked Igor if he does this exercise. His answer: “Yes, but this is not an exercise, it’s fun.” Thanks to Phil for submitting.
Finally a new Hysen Pulaku clip! Watch this super smooth combination. 150kg Clean + Overhead Squat. Thruster 2.0? Hysen lifting the equivalent of an NFL offensive lineman, like Holly Mangold’s brother, Nick, of the NY Jets, over his head and then squatting. How many NFL players could do this? Zero. (via) Oh, and while we’re talking […]
Mikhail Koklyaev works up to a triple Snatch Grip Push Press + Overhead Squat with 190 kg. Looks like this was filmed during the 2012 Arnolds, where he also did the 320 kg x 3 Squat and 240kg Snatch Pulls
