Andrey Malanichev is a beast. Time and again the powerlifting behemoth awes us with his incredible feats of strength. Just last year, he crushed an existing squat world record with a 1,014 pound lift.

Not one to settle, Malanichev upped the ante this past weekend at the Boss of Bosses II event in Mountain View, held and hosted by Boss Barbell Club and Dame Group, a part of the United States Powerlifting Association. It was there were he demolished the current world record for the highest unequipped squat —hoisting a herculean 1,036 pounds.

As you’ll see in the video, Malanichev was in complete control throughout his record-breaking attempt as the crowd went wild upon his completion of the lift. Along with earning the top spot for heaviest squat, the mighty Russian also leads the pack for the entire powerlifting raw category (squat, bench press, and deadlift), making him the leading powerlifter in the Men’s Raw World Records.
