Who was the youngest person ever to squat 1000lbs, how old was he? Has anyone else come close to beating that record since? Was this person on roids?
ummm i dont even know, i dont think it is anyone that young considering how much 1000 is - thats like saying "who was the youngest player to reach 600 homeruns... theyre all pretty old by that point"-- and 'were they on roids'.... 'roids'.....
well we probably wouldnt kno if they were on "ROIDS".. and we probably wouldnt call them roids either..
maybe they were on hemoROIDs..
6'0 - 176lb

Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
This is just a guess, but it could have been Al Mehan.
Shane Hamman was the youngest to do it and I believe it was in 96 in his early 20's....PLUSA had a special on 1000 lb squatters a few months ago, I'll try and find to confirm this
How old is Vogelpohl? He's not too old and he was the first guy being so light to do it.
I thought chuck was mid 30's?

I second Dawk, i'm almost positive it was Hamman.
Shane Hamman did 1000 at 23 years old. dawk and Hercule are right.
Standing backflip, two hand dunk, and a 36" vertical. Not bad for someone 5'9 and 370+!!!

I can guarantee anybody who can even come close to squatting 1000 is or has been on steriods, not that it's a bad thing

Now, he hasn't made 1000+ yet, but plans to at his next competition. He just did 800 x 6 without knee wraps, a suit, or anything other than a belt in his training. Throw him in his gear and he should be good for 1000+.

Squat - 505
Bench - 325
Deadlift - 550
Total - 1380@175
Anyone who has squatted over 1000lbs is on the "stuff". If they tell you different, they are lying. That goes for Tim Harold Jr, Brent Mikesell, Fred Hatfield, Shane Hammond, James Searcy, Chuck Vogelpohl and anyone else you mention.
I have nothing against drugs, but I've been in the powerlifting world long enough to know.

It's like Dave Tate says. 80% of the guys at a powerlifting meet are on steroids.
Personally I'm betting that that 80% is also the top 80% in attendance.

I actually got to meet Paul Anderson when I was a kid, he was still enormous at age 60...
