Meanwhile in Chekhov …
Today in All Things Klokov we have Snatch Grip Stiff Legged Deadlifts again.
In the comments he said that his best Deadlift (not sure if he means snatch grip stiff legged too) is 310kg without straps.
Update: In another video he talked about the importance of the deadlifts he does. Translation from a youtuber:
You were asking why I’m doing deadlifts and pulls every day… How can you train without them? For example lets take the snatch grip deadlift that I am doing right now… Its like the most important part when you pulled it up to here (1-41)… so you can really use your back.. Deadlift is like 70% of the Snatch… If you pulled it high and straight, there is like nothing to do really. Only idiots won’t catch the bar finish the lift at that point, so do deadlifts.
Update #2: Here Dmitry talks about why likes straight legged deadlifts so much.
That straps pop at the end gets a 10/10.
Ruslan Albegov gets a 205kg Snatch Double from blocks. That must he the heaviest double I have seen to date.
And Oleg Chen also doubles up on 140kg Snatches.
