Eric Lilliebridge – New All-Time World Record Total Raw w/ wraps @ 308lbs (2,369lbs)Samuel Stebbins
This broke Jon Cole’s All Time world record raw total w/ wraps of 2,364lbs done back in 1972. This was 2 weeks after competing at GPA Worlds. Had a much better meet on this day. I ended up missing 1,003lbs on my 3rd squat and 887lbs on my 3rd deadlift. Either one of those lifts would have given me a 2,400+ raw total. The squat bar was very whippy and threw me off, lost my balance on my last attempt on the way up. On my 2nd attempt with 440kgs, you can see me shaking bad out of the hole because of the bar whipping on my back. On my 3rd attempt deadlift, I was just gased and couldn’t finish it at lock out. The meet started at 9 a.m and didn’t finish until 10:30 p.m. We got done deadlifting after 10 so it was a very long day. The quest for a 1,000+lb raw squat and 2,400+lb raw total w/ wraps will be continued next year. Looking at doing my next meet sometime in the spring.
