oakstrong- NEW WORLD RECORD 832 lbs (377.5 kg) in the 242 pound (110 kg) weight class, raw no knee wraps. I’ve had this record in the back of my mind since I started competing, I’m glad things finally came together so I could get it. 5 weeks out from the U.S. Open. From jayneezy2100- One of the most frustrating things as a huge fan of powerlifting is the inconsistency of judging in the sport. High squats, touch n go bench presses, not locked out presses, not locked out deadlifts whether soft knees or shoulders still forward over the bar.... even in big name meets we’ve seen lifters get away with garbage lifts.... A huge problem with this is that newer lifters see sub par standard lifts getting passed. THEIR idea of depth becomes skewed, and thus, the entire sport evolves as these newer lifters continue in the sport. For example, I’ve seen parallel squats labelled as #AsstoGrass when it’s simply parallel... hammies barely even touching calves...that’s the evolution. Not only do the standards change with each illegitimate lift passed, it discredits all lifters who previously lifted and those who currently lift to standard. But this lift!!! This lift is a GREAT lift!!! How a squat should be!!! #sunk Shout out to Kevin Oak and hard ass judges!! This is what All-Time World Records should look like!!!
