Meanwhile in Kazakhstan …
Here is a highlight from Ilya’s journey back to the top: 230kg Jerk from the Rack!
The other day, after his Front Squats (240kg x2 at 11:00 here) Ilya said:
As you can see, I squatted 240 for a double, felt pretty good. In three months I’m going to jerk that. [puts the finger on his lips] Just don’t tell anyone.*
