Strong, Very Very Strong


Misha Koklyaev is strong.  Really strong.  His numbers in the quick lifts (462# snatch, 550# clean & jerk) would put him on the podium with Olympic gold, especially if he focused on Oly lifting.  His numbers in the powerlifts (803# squat, 528# bench, 913# deadlift-all done raw-no suit or wraps) could also put him in a world championship. He regularly competes in strongman competitions and holds Highland Games world records.  Whew, it is tiring just writing about it.
