Joseph Peña Texas high school senior made a name for himself, and impressed even the most hardcore powerlifters, when he broke the junior and sub-junior world record with an 805-pound squat at the last year World Powerlifting Championships in Killeen, Texas.
The 18-year-old Joseph is showing off his ridiculous strength yet again in a new video posted to his Instagram account. In the video, Peña squats 1,005 pounds (455.9kg) wearing just a single-ply squatting suit and a lifting belt.
But racking up powerlifting accolades is not the only item on Peña’s to-do list, he is also a rising football star in pursuit of a college scholarship and if he’s already squatting over 800 pounds as a teen, this athlete has a seriously bright future ahead of him in the sport.
