Awesome lifting video maker and ATG reader Everett Wade recently squatted 261kg (575lbs) at 82kg bodyweight.
Happened at the APA Big Iron Classic.
He prefaced it by saying:
Your readers might mock me for my use of monolift and knee wraps.
Hell no! I am mocking nobody that has a badass raw squat! In fact, I would never mock anybody that has the guts to step on a platform and compete. And if they happen to use a monolift at the competition then so be it.
He wanted to go for 272.5kg but botched his 2nd attempt.
On a side note: I think it might be the case that I am officially the weakest person reading my blog.
But hey, always good to surround yourself with stronger people. Motivation +1.
