Thanks buddy!

Thats an incredible lift, and unlike the squats we have seen lately from Childress and Bolton it was DEEP.  It also looked like it was just a poly suit not a Canvass one which seems to add more weight! This guy is seriously underated.  Probably due to his size.  His bench is good too, but his dead is horrid (in comparison) if he got that up (proably can't due to size) he could have the highest total ever!

He looks to be close to good depth. Close but no cigar.

It's a real squat though. Should've been three reds IMO, from seeing the clip.

He's close.

From the video, the squat looked deep enough to subside most controversy on depth, but I'm always hesitant to pass judgement from a lone camera angle.

It's not clear to me which suit he is using - perhaps someone can shed light. A man of his overall size, squatting with such a flared-wide stance, gets a huge amount of 2-D material support in the seat of a squat suit. I hope he someday completes in one of the unequipped strength contests that are being considered, to see what he's capable of in that arena.

Jeff Lewis is indeed one of the elite.

That squat video is laughable. What's really funny is that these WPO clowns actually think they're helping make powerlifting more popular. These idiots have the bar so far down their shoulders and their legs so wide that they're not even squatting the weight. There is nothing inspirational about some fat slob doing 5" good mornings with a 3-ply squat suit and a monolift.

Someone should remind these WPO fucks that powerlifting is a sport of strength, not technique.

What a bunch of clowns.

That was a legal squat in any fed.  I agree that WPO is a joke with there lax judging, but that was a good squat.  If you veiwed that from the side I garuntee you would change your opinion of this.

I don't know what you guys are looking at. There's NO WAY that broke parallel.
If you think it did, you don't know how to judge a squat.

Like Hedgehog said, He was close but no cigar.

Does WPO even have red lights?

That's about the most ignorant thing I've read all day.



Thanks for the laugh.

anybody check the vid below the fat guy doing the squat theres a guy benching a grand, thats bad ass even holding that much weight.  I watch that shit and wonder...."what if there was a defective weld on one of the supports of the bench", in my line of work we have welds break from numerous causes quite often it is possible with all that weight.

When you weigh 550, you can probably work on your squat just by walking around. I wonder how much more he could put up if he weighed less.

POWERLIFTING...Lift heavy or go home

Its hard to tell from that angle if his depth was good enough.  Remember its not the top of the legs that need to go deep, its the hip joint going to or past knee level.

Cool Video. Lots of power in that big squat, but man, I don't think that bar moved more than 12"-13" at the very most. I'll let the depth go as it was a decent heavy gym squat, but a competition world record? I'll also give him a pass on the bar being about 3" below his rear delts; I'm old school (and just plain old) so I guess that is no longer an issue. Big strong man regardless.

Very true. Regardless of his form or whether he wearing a squat suit, that hardly qualifies as a "five-inch good morning." The fact of the matter is, he's holding in excess of 1200 lbs. on his shoulders. Much respect to Jeff Lewis; this guy squats more than my total.

Those power lifting guys have some great bodies...they look so healthy..i love the fact that they all use some kind of device to help them lift and then think they are so strong...every lift should be raw no equipment what so ever for any event and then lets see who is strong...just my 2 cents.
