The Boss of Bosses IV powerlifting meet this past weekend saw some of the best performances of the year including several world record lifts.
But a few notable performances came from Michael Estrella who competed in the 148lb weight class when achieved the all-time deadlift world record with 668lbs/303kg which was nearly 5 times his bodyweight. But he also set the all-time record in his weight class with a 1,627lb/303kgkg total.
Check out Michael Estrella’s WR deadlift performance at the meet and then scroll down for the new 700lb deadlift which was a personal and unofficial world record. Here are the meet numbers which he posted on Instagram…
“bossofbosses6 Meet recap:
1st attempt: 611.7lb/277.5kg ✅
2nd attempt: 639.3lb/290kg ✅
3rd attempt: 668lb/303kg ✅ ATWR
Meet total: 1627lb/738kg ATWR“
Here’s the unofficial world record lift… and it looked as if he struggled to get the weight up which is expected but nothing he likely couldn’t replicate in a meet sometime in the near future.
Some of the other lights out performances from the weekend include Julius Maddox setting the all-time raw bench press record with 335.47kg/739.6lbs. Then, Yury Belkin (100kg/220lb) achieved a world record total of 1,066kg/2,305 lbs (in his weight class). And Kristy Hawkins set three world records which included a 285kg/628lb (with wraps) squat, a 255/562lb deadlift, and a massive 690kg/1521lb total.
The Boss of Bosse’s IV competition was no doubt an exhilarating experience with all of the world record lifts and it’s clear that Michael Estrella is not a force to be reckoned with in his weight class. So, we can’t wait to see what’s next for this new world record holder, especially with the Raw Nationals just around the corner in October!
