Not only did Terrence Jones, a star offensive lineman at Troy University, squat a ridiculous 810 pounds. He made it look easy.
Jones, a 6-foot-3, 320-pound senior, is the star of a new viral video. It features him surrounded by his teammates and squatting an ungodly amount of weight. The plates are so heavy, in fact, that the bar is bending. But Jones somehow manages to take down the incredible challenge.
The video has gone viral, accumulating 100,000 views in about 24 hours.
Just as impressive is Jones' improvement since last year. In April 2013 a video of Jones squatting 700 pounds made its rounds on the Internet.
Jones isn't just a weight room All-Star. He's a two-year starter at right tackle who earned first-team All-Sun Belt honors in 2013.
For reference, an average lifter could probably squat between 200 and 300 pounds while advanced squatters might be able to hit 400. A college player getting above 800 is unheard of, although former Wisconsin center and current Dallas Cowboys lineman Travis Frederick did break a school record by hitting 770 pounds.
In case you were wondering, the world record squat is 1,265 pounds. If he keeps up his current pace, Jones should be at the level in about four years.
