    Born on 15 September 1986, Ray Williams grew up in Demopolis, Alabama. He got inspired to take up weightlifting because his brother was into it.


    Ray Williams got into powerlifting in 2012 just to go on to become the first ever human to do a raw squat of over 1000 lbs in a competition of IPF standards. He made history at the 2018 Arnold Classic Sports Festival in Ohio when he squatted a whopping 485 kg(1,069 lbs) setting a new IPF world record in the 120+ kg weight category.


    Ray Williams placed 1st in The 2018 Arnold classic- SBD Pro American! The legend in the making stands 6 feet and 1 inch tall.

    Ray Williams Early life and beginnings
    While being a budding teenager, he used to participate in several athletic events, American football in particular. He was lifting weights in the gym and his brother called and told him that he had competed in Alabama state championship. This encouraged him to switch and train more as a powerlifter. Ray says that he could easily squat in 700lbs when he started training seriously.


    Ray Williams Workout routine
    Monday: Deadlift, all sumo from the floor.
    Tuesday: Squat, which is generally like as follows
    315×5
    405×1
    500×1
    600×1
    700 5×5
    Wednesday: Bench press He lifts about 450 lbs for five reps of multiple sets.
    Thursday: rest.
    Friday: On this day of the week, he does supplementary exercises and focuses on biceps and triceps.

    What pushes Ray Williams in the gym?

    The reason why he pushes so hard in the gym is his daughter who passed away in 2011 because she was born prematurely. She is the motivation that keeps him wanting to lift more weight in the gym.

    Career details
    The Arnold’s- SBD Pro American 2018: 1st
    Raw national championships 2017: 1st
    IPF world classic championships 2017: 1st

    Ray's personal best for combined lifts of deadlift, bench press and squat is 1105 kg which also happens to be a world record by any powerlifter in a competition of IPF standards. He set this record in Arnold- slingshot pro American back in 2017.
    Ray Williams seems to be a man on a mission, his future seems very bright, and we hope he does wonders in his future endeavors.
