Andrey Malanichev Breaks World Record Raw Total

Andrey Malanichev competed at the 2013 GPA World Championships and even though he got off to a bad start (had to pass on his first attempt for squat because he arrived late.) He still ended up making history. He hit 959 lbs (435kg) for his opener squat and was red lighted on his third attempt 1003 lbs (kg) for depth. He ended up hitting PR’s for both his bench press and deadlift with 573 lbs (260kg) and 892 lbs (405kg) for a total of 2425 lbs (1100kg) breaking Reinhoudt’s historic 2,391 lb (1086kg) total record.

Brian Shaw Deadlifts 985 Pounds

Brian Shaw pulled an amazing 985 pounds (447.72 kg) in preparation for the 2013 Worlds Strongest Man competition. The goal for this training session was to hit a new PR without going over 100%. Shaw pulled nearly a half ton using only a small hitch and straps, he definitely has potential to break the 1,000 pound barrier.
