At 84kg/185lbs, powerlifter Amanda Lawrence deadlifts a huge 265kg/584lbs for a single rep… and it looked pretty heavy but she managed to power through to complete the lift.
In her Instagram video post she wrote…
“Heavy pulls are my favorite, because I just wanna be like strong strong okay.”
Check out the big lift…
Here’s another video of Lawrence pulling some big numbers for reps after her 265kg deadlift. She wrote the following in her post…
“4th (top) single @ 250kg/551lbs after a 3×1 @ 245kg/540lbs, followed by 232.5kg/512lbs 3×3 for reps. Grip is getting grippier!! 👀Thanks @jake.fixell for tweaking my starting position to help engage my lats more correctly! Holy heck there’s less helicoptering now”

Amanda Lawrence is an impressive all-around lifter, squatting 529lbs and deadlifting 543 lbs at the 2019 Arnold Classic in March to win the event. And last year she hit a 570lb deadlift for a pr and now she’s set a new one to brag about.

Meet recap! Boy what a fun day! Thank you @usapowerlifting for putting on such a great event as always. I ended up taking Gold at the SBD Grand Prix—the biggest meet I’ve done to date! Thank you to everyone who came out to support me. Seriously—it meant the world to me! I didn’t put up the total that I hoped for today, but a win is a win I guess! I ended up with a 596kg/1314lbs total @ 83.6kg calculating to 909 IPF points. I hit my opener squat at 240kg/529lbs (AR), third bench at 110kg/242.5lbs, and second deadlift at 246kg/542lbs (AR). I will say my weight cut made me feel super weak for squats, so I was bit disappointed on that, but there’s always next time! Also, I did end up hitting my third deadlift at 252.5kg/556.5lbs (3x BW pull), but got called on my shoulders not locking out. There’s definitely more room in the tank for deads tomorrow at the Deadlift Pro! Excited to see how it goes! Special thanks to my coach @colewarren_shp and family @calvinator_mn @ms.kelley.lawrence @monte.lawrence for coming out to support me today! Love you all. Y’all are the best!! & another special thanks to my sponsors @sbd.usa @rpstrength @bpnsupps for supporting me through these meets!
Amanda Lawrence is really moving some big weight and her training is proof that big things are to come for the young 21-year-old. We hope to see some more impressive deadlifts for 2019 and we’re sure she won’t disappoint.
