Misha Koklyaev Puts On a Show!
14th August 2010 - Posted by Rob
The Misha Koklyaev seminar
that took place at the Glasgow Palace of Arts yesterday saw a variety of heavy lifts from the inspirational Russian weightlifter and strongman.
Koklyaev performed the following lifts for the crowd:
- 400kg x 3 deadlift
- 270kg Behind the Neck Jerk
- 290kg hands-free squat
- 190kg snatch
He also provided a number of entertaining quotes, including:
"Weightlifting is an art. A weightlifter shoots the bullseye of a target 100's meters away. A power lifter brings out this huge cannon..."
Asked if he would ever return to Olympic lifting he replied sadly "It is my dream"
Told of a guy at some airport who squeezed his arms and asked him what he would do with all the muscles he replied "I'll kick your ass".
