Tiny Meeker has been the king of the equipped bench press for a number of years. His 1,102 press has been on the books since 2013 without anyone coming close to it. Till now..., Will Barotti made history by hitting 1,105! An amazing amount of weight that by anyone's standards is a great squat!!! Here's footage of this event:
In a recent training clip Ken Morris makes a new lifetime PR with a 761 pound raw squat! Ultimate goal will be 800 sometime after a national contest. Its great to see many after these "lockdowns" coming out winning!
An excerpt from his post, to read the rest please follow the 365 Strong link provided:
"I’m deeply upset by the senseless loss of George Floyd as well as the hateful reaction it caused in the death of retired St. Louis police officer David Dorn. I know we stand as one to offer both families our thoughts and prayers.
My prayers also go out to the many that suffered loss…no matter if it’s a loss of life, business, home or property.
As the powerlifting season has finally started up again we will be seeing some serious lifts coming from many hungry competitors nation wide! Here is Cody weighing in at about 254 lbs and smoking 700 for 6 reps using the Unbreakable Gear Bull wraps!
Recently posted by Strength Central and highlighted by Cailer Woolam , Andrew Ha, Amanda Lawrence, Ashton Rouska and many other great lifters! 2020 may have started out terribly due to the current "pandemic" but the lifting world just might see some huge records accomplished before the year is over!
