5min Squat Battle – Powerlifter vs. Strongman vs. Cyclist

January 11, 2016

Five men face off on a five-minute squat challenge… Three powerlifters, a strongman competitor, and a cyclist all use their bodyweight on a barbell and do as many unbroken squats as possible while a clock is running. Who’s your money on, and do you think you could hang?


Squats are tough. Squatting 5 minutes in a row with your bodyweight on the bar hunted by world class athletes is brutal. The minimum weight is 85kg and has to be cleaned and pressed to your neck. The set has to be unbroken. Enjoy!

The competitors are…

– Olympic Cyclist Robert Förstemann (GER)
– World record holder in Powerlifting Andrej Mostovenko (RUS)
– European champion in Powerlifting Victor Beilmann (GER)
– ‘Berliner Meister’ in Powerlifting Thomas Faber (GER)
– Tetzel Schmidt, a local Strongman (and metal singer) (GER)

Butterfly pull-ups can be fun to learn and serve a great purpose for athletes. When the time comes for newbies to practice the butterfly kip, I prefer to use a technique called “Blocking Movement” for Reverse Grip Kipping Pull-ups.
