982×2 for a top set HOLY SHIITE! After 965×2, 916×2 lead up and a 943×2 drop set. Average load over 8 reps was 951…WORK!!! But damn this grind takes a mental and physical toll that is beyond explaining. But I said I will do it… so it will be. Song is Requiem For A Tower. – I plan to squat 1000×3 this coming March at the IHRSA show in San Diego. This will be the conclusion of my Grand Goals campaign when combined with my nearly 3 reps at a 1000lbs deadlift a few years ago. It will be done just a few weeks shy of my 43rd birthday and also be my final “feat of strength”. This is a culmination of over 30 years of training and working with some of the best minds in the world on rehab/prehab, recovery and training modalities. I couldn’t even attempt this without the knowledge and support of the Kabuki Strength Team who are directly responsible for managing my training, recovery, and much more. Wish me luck and I hope you’ll follow along as I train to squat 1000lbs for a triple. And to head off the inevitable questions about the bands on my upper legs… read articles after googling “Duffin Compression”. ➖ FREE AUDIO Download of my life changing book below! www.chrisduff.in ➖ CO-Founder @KabukiStrengthLab VISION: A Better World Through Strength ▪️strength equipment ▪️research-based education ▪️world-class strength coaching ▪️doing good in the world @kabuki_virtualcoaching www.kabuki.company ➖ CO-Founder @BearFootAthletics ▪️ Optimizing the human to ground interface 👣 www.bearfoot.store ➖ CO-Founder @BuildFastFormula ▪️Nutrition and training BEFORE supplementation ▪️ Research-backed formulas & effective dosages ▪️ full-disclosure labels & no-BS claims ▪️ manufactured in NSF-certified facilities. www.buildfastformula.com ➖ #kabukistrength #chrisduffin #kabukistrengthlab #powerlifting #strengthandconditioning #strengthcoach #americanmanufacturing #strong #squat #strengthtraining #weightroom #barbell #bearfoot #barefoot #buildfastformula #vasoblitz #supplements #supplementsthatwork #pump #gymlife #gymmotivation #strongman #bodybuilding #crossfit #powerlifting
Here’s what Chris had to say about this in his own words;

Chris goes on further to explain his strength goals for 2020, which include doing a 1000lbs squat for 3 reps! Now I can’t even begin to explain how insane that sounds and how rare doing something like that will be. Chris mentions that when he accomplishes that, it will a culmination of over 30 years of lifting and working with the best minds in the prehab/rehab industry.
All this at the age of 43 is nothing short of amazing! With the best crew having his back and the laser-sharp focus on his goal, there is no doubt that Chris Duffin will for sure be able to squat 1000lbs for a triple.
