A drug free 620 lbs front squat!

Rich Williams is a true freak of nature. He has the strongest grip in the world (by far) and is inhumanly strong overall. He has been front squatting for 5 months and hit 620 lbs in this video...

He has a really interesting story as well. You can read a bit more here:

That bar looked like it was glued to him. It did not want to go down as he was leaning over.

Probably ok .

You know, he could probably throw the judge of the softball throw event just as far as everyone throws the ball...
