BBers Weak? Oly Squat 675x3, 765x1

675lbs x 3 for an oly squat, with belt only is damn strong. His legs are surprisingly small though for a BB’er…
And even if the spotter helped a bit, he’s not adding 100lbs of assistance :sunglasses:

stats say he is 5’10" and 200lbs in competition. Maybe 220-230lb in off season. Triple bodyweight for reps!


765lbs 1RM and deep - oly style WOW!

so freaky, it looks almost fake, but I’m sure it’s legit :slight_smile:

he can jump too :slight_smile:

is that you

that is badass!

whoabeast

That dude is freakishly strong…DAM…

Impressive stuff…minus the posedown post-set.

Some BB’s are weak relative to their size. Some are very strong. It really depends on how they train and genetics of course. A lot of the best BB’s have been training heavy for some time.

I think if you squat 675 to rock bottom for 3 with just a belt on, you can do whatever you want after the set. I won’t say anything.

Thats one strong mofo. Looks like he’s about to bleed from the eyes.

Goddamnit. You just had to, didn’t you?

there is something about that, that just doesnt ring true to me.

He isnt a big guy, has a small waist, his knee’s shoot WAY forward… looking at that guy squat it looks like he would fall over if he didnt have the guy behind him. Something is just very off…

Either that guy has incredibly strong quads and knee’s for that matter, or this is the most obvious fraud I have ever seen.

To put it in perspective the strongest 220 squater out there who has to diet down from 242, trains raw and has done 675x3 in a monolift. And he has done 1050 at 220 without training in the suite. So if that guy is walking around at 200lbs and doing 675x3 easily with just a belt going deep as fuck, then we have a new world record holding squatter right there.

Something just seems off…

why does someone who can olympic squat 765, use absolutley no leg drive in his deadlift? And need two guys touching the weight to help him deadlift his max squat?

I might be wrong in this, but dont people who can olympic squat their deadlift max use allot of legs in their deadlift?

Well on the “off”, I noticed that the “loading” of 765 just did not look right on him.

The other thing I noticed, the mofo is crazy as all getout. So thats gotta be a few points.

Check out some of his bench videos, they are just as freaky. I have read that on many other boards the kid is using fake plates as the weight he moves is just stupid.

If it’s truly real, he’s an absolute freak and needs to switch from bb.

Monopoly

Wow!

As strong as Ronnie Coleman. Stronger than the best 198 and 220 powerlifters in the world. Maybe a better O squat than Rez. Better than Pudzianowski also.

Maybe something is a little off???

Just because its on youtube…

Iv read that those are actually 25 lb bumpers that happen to be the same size as 45’s

I dont know about those squats but 2 things that stand out to me are the grip strength he has for repping out 405 like 20 times, and the way he handles 120lb on those flies…

I dunno; I can certainly believe the deadlift.

The squat is stretching it, but I can believe it. I have a friend (I know I know…but actually he sometimes posts here under the name “itisfinished”) who recently did 635x4 close stance, and has done 685x2 - He’s about the same height, but my buddy is not as lean, nor quite as muscular as the guy (Brad) in the videos.

So its not out of the realm of possibility.

And CoolColJ, welcome back? Long time no see.
Does your little cryptic remark "but I know its legit :wink: " mean anything???

Was this done clean or does he lift untested and raw?
