Owosso's Casey Lambert, known by many by the name 'DJ Chewy,' is now the world champion record holder for Most Weight Squatted Overhead in 1-Minute, beating the previous record of 4,042 pounds.
Heading into the attempt, which took place in the Biergarten at Oktoberfest in Owosso on Saturday night, Lambert wrote "After a long and arduous approval process, I have been given the green light from London to make an attempt at the Guinness world record for Most Weight Squated Overhead in 1-minute. The current world record stands at 4,042lbs.
Lambert said "The Oktoberfest venue was chosen because it embodies the spirit and virtue of community! Together we all continue to better ourselves, our friends, our families and our neighbors by standing as one!
Following his final rep, Lambert fell to the floor, rising just moments later to celebrate his victory.
We're told Lambert needed 22 reps to beat the record. Tiffany Huff, who broadcast video of the event via Facebook live, said she lost count at 24.
