Stone Cold Steve Austin wants to squat 500 pounds by 2020



In the words of legendary Jim Ross, Stone Cold Steve Austin is harder than a two-dollar steak. And now he's trying to get even harder.

The Texas Rattlesnake, 54, has recently set a goal to squat 500 pounds by 2020]

I have not seriously trained my legs in the last 20 years. In 2012, I had an ACL / PCL replacement surgery in my left knee. In my right knee I still go without PCL. About a year ago @marksmellybell sent me knee sleeves from @thesupertraininggym. He said they should try. I started to squat again about 5 weeks ago. The sleeves give me support, confidence, keep my knees warm and give me a small spring from the ground. In this video I squat 285 pounds. Lightweight for many men and women. By 2020, my goal is to squat 500 pounds. For the wannabe judges out there, I'm not in a powerlifting contest. The squats are not parallel or deeper. I'm in my gym with a bar on my back. I have always loved to train legs and in particular the squat. Conclusion: It's good to be under the crossbar again. Thanks, Mark.

His form may not be perfect, but that does not really interest him. "For the wannabe judges out there, I'm not in a powerlifting competition," he says in the post. "I'm on my back with a pole in my gym."

Squatting is impressive enough, but we are even more impressed with this achievement as Austin has a long history of knee problems. During his career, he wore a knee brace due to several injuries – including two blowouts of the ligaments in the knee. He also had his ACL / PCL replaced in his left knee in 2012. Austin also claims that he did not train his legs seriously in 20 years.

His 500-pound squat goal is ambitious, but we give him a hell and raise our beer to him because he made an effort.
