Russel Orhii has been doing some incredible things in the weight room, lately. He was back at it again recently, with an absolutely massive deadlift.
Orhii has been shattering world records in the -83kg division, establishing himself as a top tier powerlifter. He set a new record at the 2019 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships, with a massive 833kg total lift. Since then, he has only looked to get better and improve his overall game.
This work was evident with a recent video that Russel Orhii posted to Instagram. Here, he can be seen crushing a massive 716.5lb deadlift. The best part is that be lifted the weight with the speed and ease of a warm up, even though it was actually far from that.
“716.5lbs/325kg moving FAST for today’s single 😬
I’m not going anywhere!”
This is some impressive work from Orhii, who has been having nothing but strong performances lately. Even without the ability to go to the gym, he has been able to stay busy. He is lucky enough to have a good weight set, so he can continue to work on his game, with heavy weights. Other powerlifters have been left to find ways to improvise, but he can still have great sessions.
Russel Orhii has been working hard on his squats lately. Here he is, a couple of weeks earlier, hitting a strong 683lb single. Not only that, but he followed it up with a set of 573lb back downs.
All in all, Russel Orhii is constantly proving that he is a growing talent in the powerlifting world. Whenever the time comes for him to get back to competition, it seems like an inevitiablity that he will extend his world record total lift further. How much he can extend it will just depend on the way he can continue training during these difficult times.
