It’s not often you hear about a high school senior squatting 830 pounds, but Dajour Jupiter’s successful attempt accounts for one of those instances and his lift was mindblowing, to say the least. He accomplished this amazing feat at the MHSAA Powerlifting state championships where he took first in the super heavyweight class with an overall 1,685 total including a 310-pound bench press, and a 545-pound deadlift.
But the crazy thing is he made the squat look darn easy and a foreseeable 1,000-pound lift is definitely in his future if he keeps it up. Now, Jupiter attends Ocean Springs high school in Mississippi but aside from powerlifting he also plays football and it’s a safe bet to say he’s got an amazing future ahead of him and his super strength can take him a long way in sports competition.

Even local reporter Brandon Shields was there to witness Dejour Jupiter’s awesome squat record…
Ocean Springs’ Dajur Jupiter squatted 830 pounds at MHSAA Powerlifting state championships. A new all-time boys state record breaking the previous record of 825 pounds. He attempted 900 pounds but didn’t get it.
That’s a lot..

We wish all the best to the young fellow and hope to see him in future competitions breaking even more records.
