Wendler Hits 1000!

Congrats to Jim Wendler. I just recently read that he hit a 1000lb squat at the iron house classic. If you don’t know who Jim is, he is a lifter at the westside barbell club, Dave Tate’s right hand man (0r is that left hand?) a well respected strength authority (at least in my book), and is also one hell of a guy.

He taught the force training seminar that I went to in New Jersey and I thought he was great. He had mentioned at the seminar he was working toward this goal for a long time and was hoping to hit it sometime in the next few years. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person!

yup, i was there it was quite an impressive lift.


Just wondering, how many people have now hit 1000 pound squats?

Big ups to Jim; he’s not only a great lifter, but he’s done a great deal for the lifting community as a whole.


Stay strong

I was excited to see that Jim got the squat on the books. It was a damn shame I couldn’t be there to see it.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy, well he’s nice most of the time when he’s not screaming at you and calling you a limey pussy!

Well Done Jim
