Robert Wilkerson (shw) squatted the second biggest raw squat ever recorded, regardless of weight class, at yesterday's SPF Alabama State Championships in Guntersville, Alabama. On a fourth attempt, Wilkerson squatted 950 pounds. His squat only falls short of Mark Henry's 953 pound effort in 1995. Wilkerson also made each of his first three attempts of 800, 850 and 905 pounds. On the day, Wilkerson added a 600 pounds bench press and deadlift to total 2,105 pounds raw. That total ranks him third on the Powerlifting Watch Lifter Rankings and puts him in the top 20 in the world on the Power Rankings.
