    And if that wasn't 'bad ass' enough, check this out:



    He did this after the record lift! He is so going to beat his own record later this year.

    "Wow" is a huge understatement. "Holy $#!t" seems more fitting.

    Thought this was a good bit of inspiration for all of us here who want to get in the 500 club. Way to go Ripp!

    My fave high-bar squat vid of the week. This guy is a beast.

    Misha Koklyaev no-hand squat!

    Mr Koklyaev is just too cool! This is with 300kg and he makes it look like a toy. :cool:

    Clarence Kennedy (AKA ClarenceO) at 19 years of age! He does an unbelievable amount of lifting each day with unbelievably heavy loads, all without the help of special chemicals. He's thrived on good ol' Irish fodder and a dose of creatine. I think he has squatted almost everyday for the past 5 years! I'll be rooting for him at the next O-games in 2016.

    This vid is of the second session of this day's training. Fast forward to 6:33 to catch his squats at the end of the session!

    First Session: (not in vid)
    Front Squat: 231kg miss
    Power Snatch: 105kg x 2
    Power Clean and Jerk: 130kg x 2

    Second Session:
    Snatch: 150x1, 140kg 6 sets of 2
    Clean and Jerk: 190kgx1, 175kg 6 sets of 2
    Clean Pulls: 180kg 6 sets of 3
    High-bar Back Squats: 230kg 6 sets of 3 (failed last rep)

    Some nice dips being done by Xiaojun (jump 20s in to vid). He's got the weight loaded behind him rather than in front. Never seen anyone do that before. Forces him into a much more upright position. Each red plate is 25kg (55lb).

    Kevin Cornell doing what I think is just about the most difficult form of press you can do... and with only 110kg!

    Next time you're going for a new 1RM in your press, you might want to watch this first for a little inspiration:



    I think it's 115kg, but it might be 120kg. Maybe it's easier down there?

    @Bulldog that catching the press on his traps looks crazy

    Just about all O-lifters train this way when doing any kind of press movement. Dropping the bar down behind your head onto your traps with a load in the region of your 5RM is never going to be a smart thing to do unless you have trained this way for a considerable time. I've seen a vid of a much less experienced guy doing this, only to have the bar miss his traps and drop straight down, dislocating one of his shoulders in the process. Not cool.

    Yeah, I would never do that.

    Thought this was a pretty helpful vid for those wondering whether to get some O-shoes to squat in.

    Milko Tokola has great squat form and this vid shows how little it changes as the load changes from light to heavy. Definitely worth a watch.
