I put Yurik's top performances alongside Suleymanoglu's and Alexeyev's, yet he is far less well known. I guess that's what happens with middle weight classes (or lack of several Olympic medals). They don't lift the most, and they don't lift the most per bodyweight.

I could see the wires pulling him up. Just kidding. That's a pretty impressive jump.

I see you're iterested in Vertical jumping. It's one of my training goals as well. I suggest going to, there are some good articles and scientific studies on that site, and it consists of people trying to improve their VJ. Cheers

Explosiveness, flexibility, strength (obviously) - olympic lifting athletes push the boundaries!

Any guesses on Mr. Vardanian's vertical jump?

I would be curious to see an elite olympic lifter such as this gentleman participate in the NFL combine, just to compare scores with Pro Football prospects.

I imagine he runs a pretty quick 40 yds as well.

Thanks for the videos,
