905 Raw Squat Deserves Its Own Thread

Stan Efferding just did squat 905lbs raw at ST gym . I think that’s an unofficial world record at this weight category.

That’s kind of strong… kind of.

Its insane how fast he ascends. Seems like hes just limited by the amount of weight he can descend with

Seems quite strange how he descends so slowly. Obviously works for him but I don’t think I’ve ever seen another raw lifter go that slow on the descent.

Just sick. Will be crazy to see what goes down at that meet.

I love the way he squats. It’s like he has a suit on haha.

Absolutely insane.

x2 so true

^ seems like he’s doing that to stay as tight as possible.

The juxtaposition of the above posts is rather humorous.
