Cyclist VS Powerlifter VS Strongman - 5 minute SQUAT BATTLE!

9 janv. 2016
2 920 307 Vues

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 (187lbs) 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)
Thanks a lot to Snick and his for hosting the event
Special THANKS to: Asim Zwonull, Patrick Mühlbauer, Raphael Thaler & David C.

  • WTF is wrong with Tetzel ? he either hides a Medical condition or he just dont eat right things. i can see that from his body, he should test his estrogen level and testosterone, His body is too soft like a female, maybe his estrogen levels are high.

  • Cyclist went down the whole way. Body builder did not. Anyone who does squats k does there's a higw difference going the whole way down.

  • Yes, the cyclist had deeper squats, but that doesn't mean the winner's squats were of low quality. That's why he won. Deep squats aren't the only kind of squats in weightlifting. We also use parallel squats. That's what the winner was doing. Which is the standard version of a squat. If you're going in a competition that requires you to bake the most cakes, are you gonna bake as much plain cakes as you can or double the layers?

  • Forstemann won, deeper squats and had more resistance. If it wasn't for the time he had more reps in him. The guy who won performed half squats, he did half squats not full squats. I know who the cyclist is and he is one of the best squatters I've ever seen, maybe in pair with Tom platz.

  • Robert Forstemann's form was the best. This guy reminds me of Tom Platz with his leg development and his squatting technique.

  • If this is supposed to be a measure of total strength, then the cyclist guy wins. He moved the weights a much greater distance in proportion to his body. If this was a measure of "who can technically move a weight up and down barely enough to call it a squat", then yeah the other dude wins. So which was this supposed to be? Strength test, or squat test? If it was a squat test, then what's the point of this squat test? Why not just do quarter squats and do a contest on that instead?

  • It's in my feed 2019... I think people are giving to much credit to the cyclist cuz his quads look very highly developed... besides that both cyclist and powerlifter were squatting at about the same depth yet the powerlifter squatted more reps. Even besides the fact, powerlifting squats are slightly different then high bar/Olympic style squats... Using that as an excuse is like not giving credit to strongmen athletes that deadlifts an ass-ton although with a hitch... (hitching is legal in strongman)

  • So, so happy to see actual squats. I'm surprised the cyclist did so well - a hip-below-knee position isn't natural for what they do, so I'm surprised he's strong at the bottom of the movement.

  • Wtf I might start biking those quads are fucking huuuge

  • average cyclist weigh is 72 kilo... They do not need strong abs and the back is not made for long squat. And although they are using legs all the time, they barely flex over 60º... thereby you are comparing some people who are using to really squat over people who are doing millions of time per year another kind of movement...
