Misha 417.5kg deadlift raw

Everyone’s favourite strongman Misha has been busy! Not content with being an awesome strongman and weightlifter he has been shining in the powerlifting world too. The video is from the Russian Championship in Chelyabinsk where Misha totaled 1007.5kg – 417kg deadlift, 230kg bench press and 360kg squat.

Mikhail Koklyaev managed his deadlift completely raw, unlike in strongman where deadlifts suits are often allowed to increase the weight lifted. Not only that but the lift is to powerlifting rules too which means no hitching! All together impressive stuff, although we suspect he’ll need a bit more to compete with Big Z next year.
