Last month, false claims made the rounds, saying John Cena squatted 600 pounds with no spotter. The Champ quickly put out the fire. It turned out to be a pause squat with less than 400 pounds on the bar. 

Last week, Cena hit the 595-pound mark, with no spotter in sight. He was on Twitter soon after, in classic Cena fashion. “You thought you saw it before, now it’s real,” Cena tweeted. “595 pounds/270kg. #Squat #EarnIt.”
