Veteran powerlifter Pat Susco set the all-time Raw 242 Masters 60-69 squat record ...700lbs. barefoot!..Pat weighed in @ 230 and made a triple b.w. squat! He made this lift at Skiba's Gym yesterday Sept 27th 2014. " A lot of guys talk shit - but when I say I couldn`t have done it without my training partner/fiance` Debbie I mean it...she`s been my only training partner for 2 years and was usually the only spotter I needed....My last 12 weeks of training brought me over 2 bridges to to train at the mecca "OZ" better known as SKIBAS GYM...what goes on there is unreal and is a sport unto itself...Of course the "Wizard" also known as Henri Skiba is the last vestige of a "love for the sport" lifter / owner, as he trains/runs this place solely to get you strong - as profit is clearly out of the question....he has every bar, rack,stone, log contraption made and a third monolift on the way !!! But what you get there is found no-where else - "courage" as everyone leaves there knowing they`ve given their best. "
