At twenty-five, Jessica Buettner has been a champion for six years. This week Jessica Buettner posted on Instagram, showing some gym time as she pulled 491lb for four reps.
It was an “antisocial kind of morning” for her, she said.
That seemed to work for her.

Thankful for this insulated garage and @eleikosport setup 😍 not only because of covid restrictions but also because dropping weights isn’t allowed in most gyms in battleford 😅 Plus today was an antisocial kind of morning !!
She’s definitely a winner. And Jessica Buettner is doing it all with her own personal challenges, one of which includes Type I diabetes. She’s even been known to deadlift in her own living room.
Check out an interview with her from earlier this year where she discusses what being an elite powerlifter in a world of quarantine and a life with diabetes is like.

Buettner’s Winning Streak is 7 Years Long
And that’s not all. On the Open Powerlifting Org. page Jessica Buettner’s record speaks for itself. These records above are just two of her 14 first places and two second-place wins for competitions that go back to 2014.
Jessica Buettner has been winning for a long time, and she will likely continue to do so.
Track athletics is another passion of Jessica’s, and one that she wins at as well. Prior to that, she won the Silver for the Canada West Shotput in 2015. The year before, she won the Bronze in the same sport and same competition.
By 2016, she would become the Junior IPF World Champion in the 72kg weight class. She also hit the Junior World Record Deadlift for 445.3lb/202kg and became the IPF World Powerlifting World Champion in 2016.
For all of that, she’s ranked as one of the 20 most jacked women in Instagram.
With this week’s most recent post, she’s telling the world that digging deep, even on “antisocial mornings” is what it takes to win.
