New Front Squat Harness World Record – Dave Napper from Australia

Congratulations to Dave Napper, for smashing the Open Men’s under 120kg (264 lb) bodyweight Front Squat Harness World Record held by Getstrength gym member Steve Lousich since 2008.

The open men’s record stood at 507lbs, Dave smashed it by 44 lbs with a nice deep 551 lb Front Squat with the GS Front Squat Harness on 21st July 2015.

Dave Napper’s next target is 600lbs +, to take the crown of the biggest ever front squat done with the Front Squat Harness, we wish him the best of luck and have no doubt he will reach his goal.
