Most people have been taking it easy on their lifting when they train at home. Aranitovic Aleksandra on the other hand, was recently seen putting up some impressive squat numbers with her makeshift setup.
Serbian powerlifter Aranitovic Aleksandra does not necessarily have the most amount of experience in competition. The 29-year old only has four contests under her belt, as a 52kg athlete in Europe. Of those, her biggest one was the IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships where she landed in 8th place. This was also her last meet, in which she competed just over a year ago.
However Aleksandra showed recently that she has been focused and dedicated on improving her game. In fact, as she demonstrated in a recent Instagram post, she has not even let the inability to train in a gym stop her from setting new personal records. She proved this by completely tearing through six reps of a strong 130kg (286lb) squat set.
“😍 another huge PR! Soo happy, it moved soo good! 130kg for 6, 3sets at rpe7.😋 2 days ago 130kg single felt heavy tho, what is happening here🙈 #flexxtrainingsystems #teamjoeyflexx .
To be honest, it scares me as hell to push myself in these circumstances, without a normal rack, without spotter…it’s kinda dangerous…I’m trying to train safe and keep myself away from injuries, but you never know what can go wrong…Hopefully I get back to my normal workout routine and normal life after all.”
As Aranitovic points out in the post, going for something like this could be dangerous without a spot or sturdy equipment. Nevertheless she seems to handle it with no problem. Although compared to the 8 reps she did of 120kg, just a few days earlier, that does not come as a surprise.
With both of these efforts, two things are clear: Aranitovic Aleksandra is an extremely talented lifter, and she is only getting better. Hopefully she will not push her limits while training at home to the point where it becomes dangerous. However there is no denying how impressive these performances have been.
