The world record of weightlifting is currently held by Aleksey Lovchev, from Russia. His personal best is an incredible 255 kg (562 lb) clean and jerk, which he set at the 2015 World Championships. This beats the previous world record by a massive 15 kg (33 lb).
Lovchev is a true giant of a man, standing at 2.06 m (6 ft 9 in) tall and weighing in at 140 kg (310 lb). He first started competing internationally in 2009, and has since won multiple medals at both the European and World Championships. In addition to his world record clean and jerk, he also holds the European records for both the snatch (232 kg / 511 lb) and the total (485 kg / 1,070 lb).
With such impressive credentials, it’s no wonder that Aleksey Lovchev is considered one of the greatest weightlifters of all time.

World Record Clean And Jerk Super Heavyweight
The Clean and Jerk is a weightlifting move that requires split-second timing and explosive power. It’s no wonder, then, that the world record for the Clean and Jerk in the Super Heavyweight category is an impressive 465kg (1,025lbs). This record was set by Iranian weightlifter Behdad Salimi at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Salimi is a giant of a man, standing 2.03m (6’8″) tall and weighing in at 160kg (350lbs). Despite his size, he’s incredibly agile and quick on his feet – key attributes for a successful Clean and Jerk. In order to lift such a massive weight overhead, Salimi first had to get it into position.
He did this by performing a ‘clean’, where he lifted the barbell from the ground to his chest in one smooth motion. Once the bar was in position, he explosively jerked it upwards, using his legs and arms to propel it over his head. The entire move must be completed in one continuous motion – if any part of Salami’s body touched the ground or he paused for even a second, it would have been classed as a ‘miss‘.
But thankfully for him (and spectators watching around the world!), he executed the move perfectly to take home gold and etch his name into history.
