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.....

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.

In a powerlifting world of raw and raw w/ wraps ... Here is Blaine Sumner the dominant singleply SHW lifter with what he playfully calls a raw w/ shirt bench press! I guess he has point there when you think about! He is preparing for the upcoming IPF worlds:

Richard Hawthorne 700 On The Horizon?

Sun, 06/02/2019 - 22:54 -- admin
One of the best powerlifters in the world pound for pound Richard Hawthorne has set his sights on a 700 lb pull at 132! The greatest pull at this bodyweight is 683 by the legendary Lamar Gant. Richard is second behind him with 639. Although I do believe there has been a 661 done in past Russian competitions but finding such records is very difficult. Never the less, Richard is now on the "Road to 700"., if he is able to achieve this feat it will most definitely be among the greatest lifts ever done! We wait and see.. Here is footage of him pulling 590 for 3 raw!
