bigredmanny- At last year’s USA powerlifting Raw Nationals I had to leave early for a conference, which meant missing out on optimusprime_334 becoming the first man to squat over 1000 lbs I Equipped, en route to a higher total than anyone else regardless of federation or drug testing. I’m sure many were disappointed that no new records were broken today, but I finally got the chance to see a 1000+ lb Squat in person. This 467.5 kg/1030 lb Squat was 11.5 kg/25.3 lbs heavier than that milestone lift from Atlanta, and this was only a 2nd Attempt! And the 1082.5 kg/2386.4 lb Total he did today, while less than his best, was still more than that historic day in Atlanta. Second video 490Kg (1080lb) attempt.
