Amanda Lawrence is an International Powerlifting Federation World Champion, at only age 22. She is still improving each and every day, which she demonstrated with an impressive squat.
Lawrence has made quite the name for herself, in the powerlifting world. She has dominated the Arnold Classic earlier this year when she squatted 529lbs. However, things have not slowed down for this young upstart.
She recently took to the gym, and increased that number. In her most recent run at the gym, Lawrence managed to score an unbelievably massive squat of 573lbs.
Subsequently, she posted the video to her Instagram:
In the video, you can see Amanda Lawrence hit this squat, with what appears to be a little struggle. Moreover, she even takes the time to shout “What!” while still carrying the weight. She is clearly ecstatic with her performance here.
Also in the post, Lawrence references the training that she has been doing for the upcoming Nationals competition. She has made it very clear that her goal is to reach 600lbs, as she reminds us again here. Nevertheless, with progress like this, there is no way she will not be able to get there.
This is not the only time recently, that Amanda Lawrence has shown off her work in the gym. She recently showed off an impressive 567lb deadlift, crushing her own PR. Clearly, the phenom will be a force to be reckoned with at any upcoming competition, including Nationals.

Also took 2 pause singles @ 529lbs / 240kg after cuz I felt like it. I’ve never done these before, they’re actually kinda fun!! Sorry @joeyflexx7 Training back to back sessions within a 24 hour period isn’t easy. Gotta eat to stay fueled! I have @rpstrength helping me do just that! “amanda10” will save you 10% off diet templates and ebooks. #teamrpstrength #rpstrength
Amanda Lawrence is an unbelievable talent in the 84kg weight class. At only 22 years old, there is still so much room to grow. She has only been competitively training for around 3 years, so she is nowhere near her ceiling. With her also being a long distance away from her physical prime, it will be exciting to see the heights she is able to reach.
