If you’re wondering why there wasn’t a post yesterday, it’s because my ISP took a shit. Today, I had to use internet at a public location.

Here’s Norik Vardanian cleaning, then front squatting, then jerking 210kg (no big deal):
Here’s another of him hitting a really solid snatch at 170kg. He also CJ’d 215. Norik used to lift for USA Weightlifting but tested positive for marijuana. He now lifts for Armenia and is a 94kg lifter.
Here’s Konstantinovs doing his max effort squatting day:
His recent “deadlift training day” vid is even more impressive.
And lastly, here’s Hysen Pulaku CJing 200kg at a 77kg body weight. He’s an Albanian lifter who is rumored to get US citizenship…
