It hasn’t been extremely lengthy because the final time we lined certainly one of Mash Elite Performance athlete Nathan Damron’s monstrous lifts. Damron, aka #freedomfridge as per Instagram, not too long ago hit a squat PR that not solely reminded us simply how robust his legs are, however how technically proficient he may be below heavy weight.
In Damron’s final squat video, he hits a 320kg (705 lb) squat, which tops his earlier lifetime document by 5 lbs. The final time we lined certainly one of Damron’s max squat makes an attempt was this run with 317.5kg (700 lbs) back in March of 2017. Five kilos won’t look like a lot to many, so for context, hitting this weight at Damron’s body weight is loopy spectacular, and never many 94kg weightlifting athletes are squatting above the 700-lb membership.

If you scroll via the feedback on the submit, then you definately’ll greater than doubtless see a huge named athlete make a assertion that others have more than likely thought of over the past couple years watching Damron progress.

This single remark was adopted by a number of athletes agreeing, and we’re not going to disclaim it, we’d be mendacity if we didn’t admit to pondering the identical thought. After all, this squat tops the present 93kg IPF Junior World Record by 10kg and is simply 10kg shy of the Open world document. We know Damron can squat and he not too long ago deadlifted 260kg (573 lbs) for a double, so he’d be competitive with these two lifts alone.
Outside of this huge squat, the final time we wrote on Damron was slightly below a month in the past when he hit this 220kg (485 lb) clear PR. Check out that elevate and full article, here.
Two large lifts inside a month of one another, we’re pumped to see what else has in retailer for Damron.
