That’s about as nice a squat as your gonna see and a WR to boot.

Fucking. Awesome.

That man is just too fucking strong, always inspiring watching Chuck lift.

Much better looking than a lot of the recent world record squats, but it still looks high to me.

I thought your stance was that squatting was for sissies.

Only watched a couple of videos but looked like some of the best depth on multi ply stuff I’ve seen in a long time. Way to go for Chuck, good to see him get a new record and total.

What weight class was he?

Only when its not a world record.

Many looks high squats from the front actually break parallel when you see them from the side.
I actually was watching a big time meet from the side and compared to video from the front. The front looked 4" high on some that were below parallel.

strong

!!!

He’s one scary motherfucker

That man defines intensity!..Please forgive my nutswing.

Decent

I can leg press way more than that.

Waits for some 115lb 16 year old to mention about how he could kick Chuck’s ass because he does Muay Thai and all that weight just isn’t functional

Fair play to Chuck, he really deserves a WR.

Manimal.

do we have video of his third attempt? that was too easy to be a WR

Chuck V is the man
