Powerlifter sets new record with incredible 1,005-pound squat

This shouldn’t be possible. This should not be possible. How is this possible? Professional powerlifter Ray Williams buried the all-time record for a raw squat lift by lifting 1,005 pounds over the weekend at the USAPL Nationals.

Williams’ record was achieved without a squat suit. No wraps, no assistance at all. Just one ludicrously strong man and a whole bunch of weight.
