New era in strength /Iceland....
The state of powerlifting is on the rise. Lately unbelievable raw lifts are done by a dozen of lifters. Even Reinhoudts raw total is in sight for Benny and a new lifter from Czech who did 1055 kg raw total with power to spare and fine lifts. The deadlifts are constantly exceeding 800 lbs like an everyday affair while only one decade ago it happened 2-5 times per year. Powerlifting is coming on strong once again and I don`t mention multyply but raw and IPF pl. We enter a new era.
IPF has some huge new talents, too. A Russian junior SHW squatted a deep 450 kg easily at a rather muscular 170 kg+ bodyweight. He could be the next OD Wilson.
Same goes for pro strongman. People are getting bigger and stronger once again. ICELAND has a whole new crop of monstrously strong fellows. I predict a new Icelandic era of strength (but other countries will give them a real test). For example: A new Icelandic guy did a 1005 kg raw total like a smoke show last week including a deep and easy 400 kg squat wraps only.
