A short clip of the US champ doing squats with some substantial-looking weights has gone viral on social media - but he has spoken out in the last hour to clear up just how much the WWE megastar was lifting.
To clear up all the false interpretation that has derived from the pause squat video, bar weight is 396 pounds or 180 kilos. Thank you.

So then, from the words of the man himself - he wasn't chucking around OVER 600 POUNDS above his head like it was nobody's business. For comparison, here's what 600lbs roughly looks like in WWE, via the medium of the late, great Hall of Famer Yokozuna.
Still, we wouldn't ever bet against Cena managing such a feat one day...
