Jessica Buettner has been taking the powerlifting world by storm over the last few years. She recently had perhaps her best performance to date, at the CPU Nationals, where she shattered all kinds of records.
Buettner is one of the most talented female powerlifters in recent memory. Over the course of her five and a half year long career, she has never scored less than second place at any meet. Moreover, she holds several records under the Canadian Powerlifting Union (CPU) banner.
However, Buettner may have had the best performance of her career so far this week, during the CPU Nationals. The event, which is taking place in Winnipeg, is one of the biggest meets that Canada puts on. Therefore, Jessica was looking to put on a great showing and had been preparing accordingly.
Jessica Buettner’s lifts included:
- Deadlift – 551lb (unofficial world record)
- Squat – 463lb (unofficial world record)
- Bench Press – 225lb
- Total – 1240lb (unofficial world record)
It seems that all that hard work paid off, as Jessica Buettner had a slew of incredible lifts. Perhaps the most impressive of those came in the form of a gigantic 551lb deadlift. Not only was this an all-time personal record for the 24-year old, but it was also an unofficial new world record, beating the current IPF record by 17lb!

Jessica Buettner deadlift PR!! Re-Posted • @djessicabuettner Other video didnt work, 551lb/250kg alltime deadlift PR!! My coach @justinreeson summed it up pretty well💪💪 Reposted from @kingofthelifts Another angle of Jessica's massive dead and recap from her coach! – Podcast up, link in bio! Powerlifting content daily! @kingofthelifts #QOTL #queenofthelifts + Reposted from @justinreeson This 250kg/551lbs from @djessicabuettner wrapped up our 10th meet together in amazing fashion. We did absolutely everything we set out to do, it was epic, and I’m so damn proud. Jess put on a truly legendary performance today. Going 9/9, she squatted 210kg, which is 6.5kg above the current world record, and a 12.5kg PR as a 72kg lifter. She finally broke the 100kg bench press curse, hitting 102.5kg for 5kg PR there. And this deadlift, which flew, is 6kg above the current world record, and a 12.5kg PR at 72kg. All combined, this is a 562.5kg (1,240lbs) total, and is 19kg above the current world record. She also did all of this after spending 6hrs cutting 3.6kg during the day before lifting. Her Wilks from today is a whopping 549, and her IPF points are 920. She should be at Sheffield. – #regrann
As incredible as this was, it is not the only impressive lift Buettner hit during the meet. In addition to this, she also smashed through a huge 463lb squat, for another unofficial record. These, combined with her 225lb bench press secured her yet another unofficial world record, for her total lift of 1240lb. Take a look at videos of the other two lifts she secured.
Jessica Buettner continues to prove time and again, that she is here to stay, and here to lift heavy. Despite the fact it was not under the IPF banner, it was still an unbelievable performance. It just goes to show that she has been putting in the time and work in the gym, and it is really beginning to pay off.
