Amanda Lawrence is undoubtedly one of the greatest powerlifters of all time, which she proves on a regular basis. As evidence, she recently performed a squat of 255 kilograms (562.2 pounds) in training. The significance of this lift is in the fact that it is heavier than the current IPF World Record. So, Amanda was happy to share the amazing feat on her Instagram.
