Ray Williams holds the American Record with a 1,005 raw squat from the 2016 USAPL National Championships. Williams, however, does not hold the IPF World Record as the National Championships were not an international event. The world record belongs to Jezza Uepa (Nauru) with a 1,003-pound squat at the Oceania Classic Powerlifting & Bench Press Championship.

Yesterday, while training at Arlington Strength, Williams squatted 1,015 pounds in front of the a crowd in the gym.

Check out the videos on social media of this insane lift!
