A 19-year-old powerlifter, Max Shethar, has blown everyone’s minds with his recent performance. He competed in the 2022 USPA Matt Hurley Drug Tested Memorial Meet, which took place on June 11th, 2022, in Helena, MT. Max posted some incredible lifts while competing in the 140-kilogram weight class, which includes a new 365-kilogram (804.7-pound) All-Time Deadlift World Record in the Teen 18-19 age division.
Shethar’s recent deadlift beat the previous U140KG Teen 18-19 World Record by 15 kilograms (33.1 pounds). Max also held the old record, as he deadlifted 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds) at the 2021 USPA Ragnarok Invite II.
