He executed the lift wearing lifting beltsknee wraps, and wrist wraps. The lifter’s grind was visible in David Ricks’ movements during the lift. However, he completed the lift irrespective of the difficulties faced. Courtesy of David Ricks’ personal Instagram account, you can watch the full video of his raw squat double here:

“Friday night squats at the Boynton Barbell Center. 716 Pounds (325 Kilos)
X 2. This was a PR raw double. A huge thanks to the crew at Boynton Barbell Center to keep an old guy from hurting himself,” David Ricks wrote in the caption to his post.

David Ricks did not reveal his body weight at the time of this lift. However, he last competed in the 92kg (205lbs) weight class of Master 3 division at the 2021 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships. That means the 325kg (716lbs) weight was a massive 3.53 time his competition weight. Since David Ricks did not execute the squat in a competition, it will not be considered as an official record.
