Russel Orhii has been setting world records, but he isn’t stopping there. He is back in the training room to crush his own PRs and make gains towards setting new records.
Orhii set a new world record with an 833kg/1836.45lb total at the IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships, in June. This impressive performance from the -83kg athlete turned heads around the world, making it clear that there is someone new in town to pay attention to.
Since that showing, Orhii does not seem to be slowing down at all. He hit the gym last month, with an awesome 7 rep deadlift. This is one of many personal records he has been demolishing recently. Additionally, he showed off a new PR for squats, on his Instagram page. Orhii managed a 306kg/675lb squat for an unreal triple set.

This is an impressive showing from Russel Orhii, who somehow makes it seem easy. Additionally, this comes just after he set a new PR for four rep squats, earlier last week. Orhii is clearly making gains, which will see him no doubt set new records in his future competitions.
In addition to this record, Orhii also managed to crush his deadlift record too. He pulled 294.5kg/649.26lb for 5 reps. Check out the amazing footage of the lift below.
