Watch Worlds Best Javelin Throver Throkildsen Bench-Press 200+ KG

Posted by:

Former Olympic Javelin champion, Andreas Thorkildsen, during the off season dedicated himself on weight lifting. But one particular goal for Thorlildsen was to PR in bench press.  

“My biggest project was, I wanted to do a 200kg bench press,” says Thorkildsen. “These two months are the only time I can dedicate myself to do that kind of training, as I didn’t want it to interfere with my javelin training.“My PB was 195kg for a lot of years and it took me about a month and a half of training to reach 200kg. It was funny, the two days or so before I attempted 200kg it felt like I was going into a big meet.”
