In wpo style a 4000 total is possible, 2000 half squat 1000 belly bench and 550 partial DL.
Not far off the truth.
I predict one of the heavyweights at one of the "hardcore" gyms in the Midwest soon "squat" a 1500, "bench" 1000 and deadlift 700.
Give it 2 years or so.
Wouldn't bet against it being Dave "Board" Hoff.
Of course he'll do it at some SPF backyard meet where cameras are banned, and maybe even red lights are banned as well.
In all seriousness. No. Never.
Actually, I think it's much more interesting to debate whether 880-661-881 (1000 kilos) can ever be lifted raw (no knee wraps).
Because suits and shirts change over time.
But strength doesn't.
I myself compete in gear, but my own numbers aren't comparable to those done by lifters even 10 years ago due to the improvements in garments.
So the only real comparison is when the suits and the shirts are off.
