Updated: Apr 21

Jason Burnell Jason “Deep-Squatter” Burnell was one of the Internet’s first Powerlifting personalities with his webpage and forum. Jason’s colorful personality spilled over to the lifting platform as well - he would often be seen lifting in goggles and a sequined singlet. An outstanding lifter in multiple divisions (unequipped, equipped, single-ply, multi-ply). Jason totalled best lifts of Squat 804, Bench 501, and Deadlift 683 at the 220 class. For years a fixture on the National scene, it has been rumored that Jason has his eyes set on making a comeback.
