she did't get very far up with it.

on the left: 'when filming training videos' in slovak

on the right: something to the effect of 'when demonstrating a workload of 1000 pounds'

Maybe the pic was taken part way through her range of motion. Her forarms and upper arms are almost at right angles where her muscles are generating maximum force, so the lift would be getting easier towards completion. Can't read the numbers on the plates, but it's about the biggest barbell I've seen being curled by a woman!

How many kg ?
60 or 70 kg ?

Roaddogg (September 08, 2011, 2:07 pm)

Looks like the equivalent of two 45lb plates with two 10 lb'ers on a 45lb bar. 155lbs for curls. Fuckin power man. Fuckin power.

kristifigure (September 08, 2011, 2:22 pm)

Knowing how she looked at her best, I really do not doubt she could have curled this. She is amazing.

slimbear (September 08, 2011, 10:56 pm)

I really doubt she curled this much weight, but it makes for a good photo.

kristifigure (September 08, 2011, 11:56 pm)

I read about some power lifting competitions where some girls were curling anywhere from 150 - 220 or so. this falls into that category and she was definately one of the stronger girls do be in the sport I think.

slimbear (September 09, 2011, 12:01 am)

I don't think it is possible for a 110 lbs girl to curl 150 to 220 lbs. Do you believe everything you read.

Roaddogg (September 09, 2011, 7:04 am)

Maybe not with perfect form, but it's possible. Anyone should know that it's not your bodyweight that dictates absolute strength.

Besides that, at her peak, Zuzana weighed quite a bit more than 110 lbs. She competed at 145 and likely walked around at closer to 160-170. So that speculation is already inaccurate slimbear.

And I'd be more willing to listen to kristi about what some of the girls in competition do since she's met more of them than i have. None the less, it's more about weight in proportion to height and muscle mass that dictates strength and Zuzanna was one of the stronger competitors. there are girls who weigh less than Zuzanna did who are benching close to 275. Lindsay Dejager and Rebekah Kresila come to mind. These aren't huge girls be the goal for any strength athlete should be to at least double their own bodyweight in max lifts. You'd be surprised at what some 120-135 lb girls can do.

kristifigure (September 09, 2011, 3:33 pm)

Yea I was gonna say zuzana was more like 160 or so and she was conditioned for doing this cause she competed in strength competitions a lot I believe. Anyway just saying. C'mon. Girls can be strong to ya know. :)

slimbear (September 09, 2011, 11:31 pm)

I think it's great when girls are strong. I'm just a realist.

kristifigure (September 10, 2011, 12:31 am)

But that is real. It's documented stuff. I'll try to find some links.

slimbear (September 10, 2011, 11:23 pm)

Kristifigure: I'm still waiting for some links.

kristifigure (September 11, 2011, 12:54 am)

It's so far back I'm not finding the max lift stats I had seen before. They could have been on a WPW video or something, but I did find some strength competition stats that usually require them to lift 60% of their body weight so of course they would be trimmed down a bit. I found one that had Zuzana's name in it and showed she repped out about 73 pounds 88 times in the competition which is amazing as far as I'm concerned. So I still think doing 150 or so one or two times could be doable when she is in her off season heavy lifting stages. But who know's I know I could never do such. I'll keep looking though.

Roaddogg (September 11, 2011, 2:46 am)

@slimbear -the fact that you thought that she weighed 110 kinda throws off your whole "realist" argument. Few women involved in high school level varsity athletics weigh less than 130 let alone an IFBB pro-level female bodybuilder. Before you question other ppl's expertise and numbers, I have to question yours.

No offense but your credibility flew out the window when you said that son.

I found the link with the strength records interesting. As far as I knew prior to now, Michele Ralabate and Zuzana Korinkova held world records set in the early 1990's for curls with 60% of bodyweight with reps in the 50s. I knew that 50% of bodyweight curling contests were also held but I didn't know that the records were over 100 reps - unreal. I have no idea what these women could lift for a 1rm but the photo of Zuzana looks legitimate, whether she completed the lift or not.

Chris_Carss (September 12, 2011, 4:20 pm)

It looks to me from the expression on her face and from the way she was standing like she had already done several reps at this very high barbell weight and was forcing a final rep. This girl has bone-crushing strength. Her arms are super-pumped here, and the size, definition, and hardness of her powerful arm muscles suggest she could curl that weight for several reps.

slimbear (September 12, 2011, 11:18 pm)

The strongest female curl chanpion has been Karla nelson. She did 118.2 pounds at a body weight of 197 pounds for 25 reps. She was built like a linebacker on roids though. Thanks to Kristifigure for this info.

Roaddogg (September 13, 2011, 1:30 am)

That's 25 reps at 197lbs which makes it very plausible that Zuzana could do quite a few reps at a bodyweight of around 160. And at the time she was build like a shorter version of Nelson.

kristifigure (September 13, 2011, 12:16 pm)

Yea that was just my point that I thought one time would be doable, yep no problem slimebear.

Chris_Carss (September 13, 2011, 8:02 pm)

Actually it's slimbear LOL, but I agree too. This girl has the muscles to curl with the best of them!

slimbear (September 13, 2011, 10:38 pm)

I wont stop crying wolf untill someone can show me documentation of a woman curling 150 lbs in a lifting event. Otherwise, its just speculation.

tokkola (September 13, 2011, 10:53 pm)

lol SLIMEbear

kickfan (September 13, 2011, 11:25 pm)

and it is equally speculative that you have anything more than a single-minded pea brain, actually that is reality, no cryin' wolf there

rutabaga22 (September 13, 2011, 11:36 pm)

No strict curls of 150, although Cheryl Haworth hasn't tried! However, with strict curls up to 109, I can imagine somebody has done a strength-event-style curl, with lots of body English, of 150.

Interestingly, Kristi's 70's, which are pretty close to strict, are in near-record to record territory for a girl her age and size.

kristifigure (September 14, 2011, 3:05 pm)

Ok I promise the "slime" was only a typo!!!!! Sorry, haha! ooops. I must be to tall for any records ruta.. :)

Roaddogg (September 15, 2011, 12:34 am)

Slimebear or slimbear, whatever his name is, he's a moron and a troll. Stop responding to him. He knows f-all about this.

Like I said before, he "thought" she weighed 110 lbs. That should tell you all that you need to know about him. I'm done responding to this idiot's posts.

Hey roaddog, you can't even spell your own name. You just a roaddog.

eljaguarito (September 15, 2011, 10:12 pm)

I see you're arguing the point there, bear.

Roaddogg (September 16, 2011, 6:09 am)

Ok, I said that I was done, but your last post was so full of silliness that it's screaming for a retort, so here goes.

First off, slimbear is it? I hope you don't handle sharp instruments at work.

And second, if you can't understand where my handle comes from, here's a free tip. Google is your friend.

Oh and in your effort to correct me, you still found a way to misspell the word that you tried to use. If I were just saying "road dog" it would be two words. Spell check is also your friend.

So, in light of all that, feel free to change your post to make yourself sound a bit smarter. Here's hoping that you take the hint and quit while you're,... wherever you are. But I'm done playing with you dude, you make it so easy. Say what you want. You have the board.

the problem with trying to have a debate is that uttering one single incorrect fact can effectively destroy your whole side of the debate. slimbear, by grossly underestimating her weight at 110 lbs when verifiable stats confirm that she was more in the neighborhood of 160, you have effectively buried yourself along with any credibility you might have here.

slimbear (September 16, 2011, 10:33 pm)

Road dog: you need to go back to sniffing trash cans. I'm done talking to you.

Chris_Carss (September 16, 2011, 10:40 pm)

I think Zuzana could put an end to all this bickering without uttering a single word!

leanandclean (March 27, 2012, 5:14 pm)

You guys believe everything. I don't think she is strict curling 145 or 155, whatever. This is a massive heavy weight, many many muscular serious gym guys fail at curling that much weight in proportion to their bodyweights. No way, she could had curled that much weight, if you believe she can you never curled heavy in your whole life. The angle of her shoulders and the way she is standing shows clearly that her technique form is eveyrthing except a clean bicep curl form.

goodoc2001 (February 26, 2013, 1:34 am)

In an interview back in the day Michelle Relebate said Suzanna was one girl she would not want to tangle with. Quite a statement from such a strong girl!

Kilo killer (July 07, 2013, 12:40 pm)

In regards to the 155 pounds on the Olympic Bar it is quite possible that she could have done a single rep. You can go to the net under WPW and they have a video you can buy on there. It shows her at a mere 125 pounds curling 135 pounds for 2 reps, and benching around 200 pounds. I have lifted my entire life and even for her to rep out 155 pounds for a single rep IS QUITE IMPRESSIVE!!!!

rutabaga22 (July 07, 2013, 5:55 pm)

Benching 200 is a piece of cake compared to curling 135, but I'm going to guess that the weight in the photo is real. Her traps are contracted like she is curling heavy weight. I have no idea whether she completed the rep.
