    There's a follow-up story about how he couldn't train with more than 700 because his gym's bar couldn't hold more. Someone on Reddit bought him a Texas Power Bar (for $500). Pretty awesome.

    Here he is squatting 950: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25WsrL2FOjM

    And 855--for a triple: Ray Williams squat 855x3 - YouTube

    he might be one of if not the strongest oly lifter in America right now? I dont even know if anyone can put up more than this.

    I've known about Mendes for a few years now. Crazy strong, like lots of dudes at Broz's gym.

    honestly, it doesn't matter who is natty or not, both require different levels of commitment and discipline
