You probably remember the “beer-drinking” WWE superstar who was always ready to open a can of whoop-ass on anyone. The 54-years-old Stone Cold Steve Austin (Steven Anderson) was always an intimidating figure in the ring and due partly to his jacked physique.
But he’s kept up with training all these years and is now reaching for a big squat number of 500 pounds by 2020…
The Texas Rattlesnake recently explained in an Instagram post that he hasn’t seriously trained legs for 20 years. But he recently started back up about 5 weeks ago. Austin He’s currently squatting 285 pounds as you can see in the video…
Steve Austin wrote the following in his Instagram post…
“I haven’t seriously trained legs in the last 20 years. In 2012 I had ACL/PCL replacement surgery in my left knee. In my right knee I am still going with no PCL. About a year ago @marksmellybellsent me some knee sleeves from @thesupertraininggym. He said to give them a try.
I started squatting again about 5 weeks ago. The sleeves give me support, confidence, keep my knees warm, and give me a little spring out of the bottom. In this video I am squatting 285lbs. Light weight for many men and women. By 2020 my goal is to squat 500lbs.
To the wannabe judges out there, I am not in a powerlifting contest. The squats are not parallel or deeper. I am in my gym with a bar on my back. I have always loved training legs and the squat, in particular.
Bottom Line-It’s good to be under the bar again.
Thank you, Mark.”
We’ll circle back around to see if Steve Austin is able to reach his 500lb goal… do you think he can do it?
