I have no regrets for overeating because sometimes it feels great to just let go. So.. let’s start over again ! Nutrition track & Off Training season. I’m Ready for it,” Lya Bavoil wrote in the caption to her post.
In the caption of her post, Lya Bavoil revealed her body weight to be around 67-68kg. This means the 205kg deadlift was 3 times her bodyweight while the 197.5kg squat was nearly 2.9 times her bodyweight, which makes it an impressive feat. However, the lifts were nowhere near the raw world records she recently set.
