Finally hit a 500lb squat yesterday, spotted by none other than current IBF Heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua who happened to be training st the same gym on Christmas Day.

Nice. 500 sounds way better than 227.5.

There is a video... I'll upload it when I get a chance. Upper back rounded pretty badly but nonetheless it was a valid squat.

Nice work. It's a satisfying marker. Most people don't understand how hard it is for a genetically average guy squatting to depth to click over that 5 plate number.
