In 2015, one man’s record-setting squats blew our minds. Josh Spaeth claimed the title as the world record holder for the most weighted squats in one minute when he squatted 504 pounds 22 times in one minute!

That’s a grand total of 11,101 pounds! To up the insanity, Josh has been a power lifter for just five years, and he trained six months for his world record attempt.

Check out the video of Josh’s record-breaking barbell squats in the video below:

While Josh’s skill ranks approximately in the superhuman level, we’re guessing that some of you have an impressive squat record too. If so, share your squat stats with us in the comments below!
