Update 07.02.2015: Another 190kg. This time in Brazil. Longer video.
Update 26.10.2014: Dmitry Thrusters 191kg
Update 30.01.2014: Another 190kg Thruster by Dmitry. This one is from a seminar in Perth. See his long video of it here.
Meanwhile at a Klokov / Ilyin / Polovnikov Seminar at Waxman’s Gym …
Dmitry Klokov does a 190kg Thruster (first 180kg then 190kg in the video) which I think is the heaviest thruster on video to date.
Hookgrip got a nice sequence of it too. Dmitry also did a 220kg clean, which is pretty good considering all the travels and that it’s ‘off season’ for him.

Klokov also uploaded an interview with Zygmunt smalcerz from after the session. He’s much better at speaking Russian than he is speaking English. LOL at the appearance of Butch Curry in the LA session video. As someone said in the comments, he is the wheres waldo of American weightlifting. I see him all over the place in random youtube videos all over the place.

Anyone know what brand of plates those are?
late response, but those are American Barbell plates. same company made the bar too
Tom Bennett says
the little white haired coach is from Poland isn’t he? Does he coach in America now? I thought at the world’s I saw him helping some American lifters.
That’s Zygmunt Smalcerz, resident coach at the Olympic training center in Colorado, Olympic gold medalist 1972.
Tom Bennett says
that’s what I thought…very cool. Is a ‘resident’ coach a temporary thing? I remember Abijaev helped the Americans for a bit too, didn’t he?
I don’t know details about his contract
Josh Pfau says
Is the thruster used in weightlifting training? I know we use it all the time in crossfit with varying weights, depending on the wod’s goal. Just curious the purpose of the thruster as it relates to the sport of weightlifting.
It does not. The thruster is not used in weightlifting. Sometimes exercises are combined in the form of complexes. But the thruster is normally not used, especially not for conditioning.
Back to the Thruster, what value if any, would bring weightlifting training? Is he just showing what a strong weightlifter can do, or is he playing with it to see if it works for him. Is he starting to cycle it in or does he do it all seminars?
