I have not yet had a chance to speak to Phil, I am going to try to reach him tonight. That said, it looks like he may have hit a WR squat!

i didn't see the squat but i did see some impressive benching results!

Also, the strongman competition was fantastic!

Ok, here is the skinny. Phil hit a WPO world record in the squat with a 843.3. This ranks as the 2nd all-time squat. He placed 4th overall in the middleweights which spanned 181-220 pounders.

Phil was a bit disappointed with his placing and has decided to compete again this coming weekend at an APF meet in South Carolina. At that meet he plans to hit the all-time record for the sqaut in the 181 lb class with a lift of 855 lbs. If he succeeds with that lift, he plans to go for a 2000 lb+ total.

Both Dan and I (AtLarge Nutrition) are very proud of Phil and his accomplishments. We wish him the best of luck this coming weekend and hope you will too.

:omg:843.3 at that weight class is amazing, I can't even begin to fathom squatting that much. Very impressive. :bow:

I just unracked 700 before and everything felt like it was going to blow up. The pressure from that was unreal, my head felt like the blood pressure was at 1000PSI :D

Phil is going to be billed as a "guest" squatter. It sounds like it will be a pretty well done meet.

Home, make sure to introduce yourself to Phil at some point, he is a very nice guy and I am sure he would like to meet you. Probably best to wait until after he lifts.

They'll have a monolift according to the flyer, so that'll be interesting to see. It looks like it'll be a great meet. I'll certainly see if I can get a chance to meet with Phil. Sure would be humbling to meet somebody that weighs less than me but can lift nearly 2 or 3 times what I can.

It'll be here:
Charleston Southern University
9200 University Blvd.
Charleston, SC 29423

I'm not exactly sure where that is as I'm still new to Charleston but I'm going to find my way there. Be nice to actually see a powerlifting meet.
