685x4 raw @ 220. Apparently he's looking to go for 800 at RUM


#2

Damn man. Looking forward to Jay Nera's progress--should be a battle at RUM!

EDIT: looks like Jay's goal is 335kg, so...


#3

Wow that was incredible!


#4

Awesome.


#5

Here is a 880# (400kg) squat w/ belt and wraps at 220# (100kg). Sam posted about it in his log at EliteFTS.
EDIT: replaced like weight systems. (kg/kg & #/#)

Nera's been dealing with a whole lot of injuries this year so it'll be interesting to see what he puts together. I'm interested in seeing Hamilton, the guy only lost last year due to a missed deadlift (that he hit in training) and makes progress like clockwork


#7

damn, I can see another two reps in that! very motivating


#8

Gotta be motivating for the guys squatting after that. That was insane...


#9

fixed


#10

Thanks!


#11

damn.


#12

holey shit. that is one of the most impressive lifts I have ever seen.


#13

Strong beard.


#14

At 220? How short does he have to be to lift that much at that weight?
