Einstein once said “Don’t worry about your difficulties in mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater”. I think this can be applied to Denis Cyplenkov who had the monumental task of curling a bar about the size of a UFC heavyweight with strict form. While we were kissing our biceps and winking at the girl on the treadmill after a set of 30’s in a New York Sports club, Cyplenkov was in the fight of his life at the World Power Lifting Federation in Russia.
Cyplenkov eventually curled 225lb record, breaking the world record and etching his name in the history books. We wouldn’t say he made it look easy but I think we’ll be mentioning his name in the same sentence as world record in the near future. Check out the amazing feat below. [words via Generation Iron]
