Meanwhile in Egypt … Nobody Power Snatches 140kg quite like the Egyptian Lion Mohamed Ehab (69kg). He also uploaded a 160kg Power Clean & Jerk, but he has done 168kg before. Update 01.03.2015: 147kg Power Snatch https://allthingsgym.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/mohamed-ehab-140kg-power-snatch.mp4 Video on Facebook More Mohamed: All Mohamed Ehab Posts on ATG 190kg Clean & Jerk Barbell Broad Jumps
Meanwhile in Russia … Just like he did with Tatiana Kashirina, Rashid Itsaev from YouRaiseRussia, visited 20 year old Olga Zubova (75kg) in the St. Petersburg training camp and had a quick chat with her. Update: Here is a video from Karen Tovmasjan of the St. Petersburg training camp. Includes some Squats & Pulls from Olga. Lucky […]
Blast from the past … Here is on from the 2006 Worlds training hall. Hossein Rezazadeh with what looks to be a 180kg Power Snatch (if the thin black plate is 15kg). Probably not the heaviest Power Snatch ever from him, but certainly the heaviest on ATG so far.
Meanwhile in Egypt … Mohamed Ehab (69kg) gets a new Clean & Jerk PR. 185kg. Slowly closing in on Liao Hui’s recent 198kg World Record. Also this is just 20kg less than what he Front Squats (205kg). Update: YouTube Version
Meanwhile in Perth, Australia … After the internet no-repped him on his past CrossFit Wods, Dmitry Klokov made up his own workout. Ten 150kg Power Snatch for time. Took him 2:47 (starts at 12:40). He also gets a 270kg Snatch Grip Deadlift (at 17:20) in his usual (almost) stiff legged version. Read more about why he stiff legged deadlifts so […]
Meanwhile in Russia … After his 150kg Hang Power Snatch, Vladislav Lukanin (77kg) has a 155kg Power Snatch for you. And a snappy Power Clean triple.
Meanwhile in Russia … Vladislav Lukanin, who won the 2013 Russian Championships 77kg with 156kg + 195kg, has a nice training lift for us. Here he is with a 150kg Snatch Pull + Hang Power Snatch. Update: Youtube Video
Here is Sa Jae-Hyouk warming up in the 2011 WWC Training Hall. Finally an opportunity to sneak in the gif of how he injured himself trying to get all the bags in one go. Hat tip to NorthSports Olympic Weightlifting.
And now for some Strongman conditioning … Marshall White likes his Olympic lifts and does 15 reps of Hang Power Snatches with 100kg 102kg (225lbs). Can’t hate on the form either. Perfectly acceptable for his purpose. This is an odd movement since it seems as though your explosiveness just goes away without any warning and there’s […]
