Bill has been around a long time and has been impressive for years but he's doing 1000 pounds at 60 years old people! That is almost unbelievable!

"1000 pounds to a half board! Praise God for what he is doing in my life! I usually don’t post videos of my workouts but this was pretty special. What God is doing in my life is explainable. And yes I am still drug free, please don’t steal from what God is doing in my life God says if you have the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains and I believe it!"

All Time Raw Records And Boss of Bosses VI

Wed, 09/04/2019 - 22:21 -- admin
There have been many questions on whether or not the all time records set at Boss of Bosses VI would be accepted due to the event not being sanctioned. Lifters come and go and as time passes lifters are either new or quickly forget. So, lets back up about 11 years. In 2008 the Raw Unity Meet was formed and was the first raw unification contest of any significance. Eric Talmant and I decided that since there were no official all time "raw" records only equipped, that I would compile them to give the lifters something to shoot for.

Yury Belkin's and his Mind Boggling 2,350 at 220!

Mon, 09/02/2019 - 09:37 -- admin
Yury has been the most dominant 220 since the king himself Ed Coan. When Ed burst upon the scene, he did so with numbers that were so far ahead of his time that even great lifters totaled were left in the dust by over 200 pounds. Yury is doing the same today. Anyone with a 2,100+ at 220 is a great lifter, hell even at 242 for that matter. What Yury has done has set himself in that mythic category that so few lifters have achieved. At the Boss of Bosses VI Yury blasted a 917.1 squat 518 bench and 914.9 deadlift.

Mikey Estrella Tops the 148s!

What an amazing total! Huge numbers were set at the Boss of Bosses 6 event and the 148 class had one of the best performances. Mike hit a 534 raw squat to begin his quest for for the largest 148 total regardless of wraps or not. Things only got better from there with a monster 424 benchpress (shades of Joe Bradley) and then pulled a 668 deadlift to reach the pinnacle total of 1,626.99!

Maddox Does it! 739 ATWR Bench Press!!!

Julius Maddox has been knocking on the world record door for some time and today at the Boss of Bosses VI he finally nailed it! It did have it since of drama and fortunately no one was hurt. Julius paused then pressed the ponderous weight up to full lock out and the rack command was given. Just a second after the rack command was given his left arm began to fall back as if to rack but instead came crashing down but the spotters were able to catch the weight.
