Rob Wilkerson 1000lb's RAW Squat

How do people even get their head around having 1000 lbs on their back?? :confused: Mind over matter all the way, I guess, literally in this case. :mh:

Wilks is sick. If he gets his head around gear, he could smash some serious all-time records.

The thing about Wilk is you cant tell how deep he is because he is sooooooo big. People hate on him a ton, but seems like a really nice guy. He has a 600 plus raw bench as well. Crazy strong!

Another guy that people always hate on is Donnie Thompson. I was at the meet when he broke the all time squat last month. Super nice guy. We talk training from time to time. He told me he trains raw up until about 6 weeks from the meet. People think he is all equipment, but are way off. I saw him do jumping jacks with 800 raw in the squat in the warm up room.

That guy is MASSIVE!!!

That's what I thought J: his thighs are massive that he can break parallel and the top of his thigh is still curving up due to its size. It's a shame people can't show respect instead of hating all of the time. He is chasing a 2200 total RAW for goodness sake!

I dont get into that debate on depth with people. If the 3 judges who are looking at his hip can tell he got there, then he got there. The sport of powerlifting would be better off without all the fighting. The man has some raw power that is unreal! People cant do the things he does, and they just want to bring him down. Just my opinion.

Big Rob gets alot of hate, some of it deserved, most of it not. My biggest problem is that he appears to squat high. He defends and says he hits depth. I pissed him off on another forum when I told him that if he wanted to shut that all up, do a meet where video taping from the side is allowed, because that is not allowed in the SPF. Even if he squats high, I dont blame him, I blame the SPF because they have created the enviroment that makes this acceptable.
