Ashton "The Prophecy” Rouska 821 Deadlift at 208!

Sat, 07/06/2019 - 20:33 -- admin
Ashton weighed in over the 205 limit at 208 and posted notice to all 105kg/231lb lifters! He managed a 705 lb squat and 457 bench to set up his pet lift- the deadlift! He pulled a massive 821 to unofficially break the IPF world record total of 1,974 with a 1,984 total! Will he stay in the 105 class or go back to 205 and smash that record? Either way he's a major threat to the world records in each class and looks good to surpass 2 grand!

Sun, 06/30/2019 - 11:10 -- admin
Bill Gillespie benches 903.9 at 59 years old in the drug tested 308 weight class at the 365 Strong US Eastern Nationals Saturday June 26th. He is 3 months from turning 60 in September. His Wilkes formula factored with age is 301.3 and if he was 20 years younger would equal a 1190 bench press. How many benches have there ever been with a 300 + Wilkes?

Justin Caputo 620x3 Squat, Will he regain his ATWR?

Fri, 06/28/2019 - 20:09 -- admin
Justin Caputo has been the squat king at 165 for years now. He was the first to break the 600 mark raw since the 70's and took it up to 622.8. He has had some challengers along the way but has prevailed in maintaining his dominance. Now, the reigning all time raw total record holder and many time IPF Classic world champion, Taylor Atwood has taken claim to this record with a 623.9 lb lift. Justin is shown here with a 620x3. He seems poised to regain his record soon. Sometimes we just need that extra fire to burn and make us remember who we are.....

Julius Maddox Closes in on Kirill!!

Sun, 06/23/2019 - 12:28 -- admin
On 06/22/19 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi Texas Julius broke the All Time American record bench press with a whopping 723 pounds! He took the attempt to over take Kirill's World record of 738 but BARELY fell short with around 740! This will fall soon maybe a 744 to 750 based on how close this was and the improvement rate he has been showing.
