Ivan Makarov is a former circus Strongman from Russia, who gained some international fame when he attempted the famed 501kg deadlift back in December. He was unsuccessful in pulling the monstrous 501 kg but he got attention and curiosity of quite a lot of people, including Eddie Hall.
Then nothing new came to light for months until he announced that he will be competing in the world deadlift championship in September and that he is aiming for a 520kg deadlift. That was back in June and I even had the pleasure of exchanging some messages with him and he was kind enough to answer some questions. Here’s what he had to say back in June about potentially breaking the deadlift world record.
If you deadlift above the world record(501kg) in September, would you be satisfied or would you still try 520kg?

Первая тренировка тяги в экипировке за долгое время 440кг на 2 раза, идёт довольно легко ,на втором подъёме как обычно не хватило кислорода ,мог потерпеть ,но ещё вся подготовка впереди ,форсировать подготовку не буду , потихоньку чувствуя свой организм буду идти шаг за шагом , вперёд к цели . Друзья кто хочет тренироваться вместе со мной , приглашаю на онлайн ведение 💪 ПРОСЬБА ДЕЛИТЬСЯ МОИМ ВИДЕО ,ДЛЯ МЕНЯ ЭТО ОЧЕНЬ ВАЖНО The first training session in gear for a long time 440kg for 2 times, it’s pretty easy, on the second lift as usual there wasn’t enough oxygen, I could tolerate it, but I’ll still have all the training ahead, I won’t force training, I will go on step by step feeling my body forward to the goal. Friends who want to train with me, I invite you to online management 💪PLEASE SHARE MY VIDEO, FOR ME THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
