The other day I learned about Powerlifter Holger Kutroff.
He was one of the most successful German Powerlifters. Unfortunately he died from a heart attack he suffered mid training in 2010 at the age of 40.
I was surprised this video has never been featured here. Powerlifter Holger Kutroff with a deep, no wraps, and relatively easy 300 kg front squat. I believe this is the heaviest no wraps Front Squat I’ve ever seen on video, though obviously it’s likely that some SHW WLers out there capable of this (if we think back on Reza’s 280×2). Still, for a powerlifter to do this is pretty impressive–a bit like an Oly lifter putting up a world class number on Bench Press.
I couldn’t agree more. And even though that video is from the early days of YouTube (2006) I think it definitely belongs in the ATG Front Squat Hall of Fame.
