New World Record Squat and Total: 777lbs/352.5kg and 1945lbs/882.5kg at 198lbs/90kg -- Ernie Lilliebridge JR

Ernie Lilliebridge Junior took down Phil Harrington's former 760 world record raw squat with wraps by nailing a 777lbs squat. He wasn't done there. He went on to break Larry Pacifico's 38 year old record: 1936lbs at 198lbs raw with wraps. Ernie normally pulls close to 800, but only got 711 at this meet. Ernie has a realistic shot to be the first man in history to total 2000lbs raw in the 198lbs weight class. What an incredible performance.
