In his quest to become the greatest squatter of all time, Amit made his jump to 242 (actual weight was only 220.5) to tackle a sacred record. That of an Immortal, the man called the captain... Capt Kirk! Kirk Karwoski was one of the greatest squatters of all time. A man who became the lightest to squat 1000 pounds under IPF conditions during a time when simple singleply gear was king. In 2004 he came out of retirement and competed at an AAU meet as a guest lifter to shatter the raw 242 records. He made his 826 record a historical lift that day. 12 yrs later another prolific squatter has appeared in the newest chapter of the great squatters.. Amit is on a mission to become the greatest of them all. To become the only man to hold the squat record in 4 weight classes simultaneously. Mike MacDonald did it at 181 - 242 in the bench, Ed Coan did it in the deadlift also at 181 - 242... Amit's 181 squat record has been taken otherwise this would have been 4 classes.. so now its time to drop down from his current 220.5 lb weight to 181 to regain it! Can he do it????
