I remember Ironminds site had a complete video of this competition. It included some insane off the floor zercher lifts , olympic lifts and these hip lifts.  It was a vid of insane lifting for sure...

Here's the channel and organization for those lifts -

http://www.usawa.com/ .

http://www.youtube.com/user/USAWAVideos .

You can also pull up more if you search usawa lifting on Youtube.

The real pain in that lift is around the kidneys and where the chains or strapping crosses the thighs.

That's a really fucking stupid lift.  However, there's no way in hell I could ever do that.  Dumb fuck or not, he's got some strong hip flexors.   :D

Yeah, #6270. But there is some controversy about the actual poundage. Here's a good article on it -

i read about that lift when i was about twelve years old, and already infatuated by strength, cannot imagine how many people i told about that lift.
i thought the guiness book was more fact based than it obviously is. ???

Hip flexors are on the front of the hip, I don't think they have much to do with that one.

What is the point of a lift with a 2" ROM?

Honestly, we don't. But at least it is closer to a real believable number. Cyr's was done at an exhibition with 18 large men standing on a platform. I'm not sure if they were weighed or not, but it was probably close to claimed weight.

I think the popularity of the back lift came from circus's, fairs, and various stage shows, etc...... They'd load up these things with audience members, horses, elephants, showgirls, etc..... and it would be a treat for the eye. When that type of entertainment faded away, you hardly ever saw the lift again.

Maybe, but I think they were a bit more credible/reliable back then. I think as the years have passed, it's gotten harder to be "special," so you've got more people resorting to ridiculous measures to stand out.
And, some of the reasons people even make it into the books now are even dumber; it's like if you can't break an existing record, create your own event like the most people whistling at one time, or the world's largest Zumba class.


Great Arab genetics

Indeed.
"Pedo Muhammad" agrees.
