Found this on another board - Josh Bryant doing a squat lockout w. 1425lbs! Pretty impressive if you ask me.

A full squat would have been much more impressive, but comming from a guy who only can only squat like 1/5-1/6th much ill just shut up.

That was certainly interesting. I will probably never be able to do that, or even come close, that was awesome.

Lol me neither. But now we know how they do it when they say "partial reps". Learn something new every day.

I've never seen anything like that. You gotta admit he has one very strong lower back/core.

man the guy just needs to have immense strength and endurance to withstand freakin 1425 lbs on his back.

If I drove a civic I think I could say that dude just did a lockout with my car! Very impressive!

He's around 275, I think. Yes, he's competed in strongman. Here's his website: http://www.joshstrength.com/test/

With that little range of motion, I could probably even do about 800 lbs. I'm sure there are guys like Mikesell or Miller who could do well over 1,500 on something like that.

I love how guys that big are always in the sweats and beenies. It's like the big mofo dressing code.

With that little range of motion, I could probably even do about 800 lbs.Really??? I think you are underestimating this. Is your lockout that strong? I figure I can maybe do 100-200lbs more than I can full squat...

I think they'd have to do a little training, but yeah I'm sure they could.

I believe Guido is doing 630lbs with the actual barbell. He has the bar on the pins, goes under, and locks it out.

It's probably different from person to person. I have done close to 700 (actually 320 kg) in a squat lockout (6" ROM) when I never even squatted or deadlifted. Another guy tried it who was the same size, but squatted 450. He couldn't budge it. But then again I would get stapled if I tried full squatting with 450. :)

Still: 700 felt very heavy, so can't imagine what twice that must feel like. Maybe I should try and find out. :D

I'm sure you are right. I see many high school kids who can easily high-box squat twice or more what they can parallel squat. The ratio does seem to even out a little as the numbers get higher.

I believe Guido is doing 630lbs with the actual barbell. He has the bar on the pins, goes under, and locks it out.This is true. I can probably do about 650 fresh, and that's starting out lower than the 1,425 guy did. With his ROM, I don't think 800 would be out of the question.
