Ivan Denisov – Long Cycle world record

Here’s a video from 2010 where Ivan Denisov breaks his own world record in Long Cycle.

116 reps in 10 minutes, where he lifts 2 x 32 kg. That is close to 7.5 tonnes of iron lifted above his head in 10 minutes!

Long Cycle is one of the common competition exercises, and puts great demands on the performer. The exercise works the whole body, and you have to be really good at distributing your energy to succeed. Notice how seemingly effortless Ivan Denisov works throughout the set, with good form until the very end. Impressive.
