First night in Russia and I had dinner with a former Russian Weightlifter, Maxim Agapitov, who used to know the famous Russian Greco Roman Wrestler Alexander Karelin. He used to train in the same complex as Karelin. He said Alexander was on the few wrestlers who used to come over to the Weightlifting center and ask to be trained. Maxim said he was very strong and that he could Back Squat 280 kilos, Dead Lift 260, and Clean over 200 kilos. He would tell Maxim it was because of this strength that allowed him to dominate the International Wrestling scene for over 12 years. Once again another reason why wrestlers must train for strength and power and not just pure aerobic conditioning.
