Social media fitness influencer and Gymshark athlete Serena Abweh posted a video on Saturday (January 18th) showing off a 150 kg (330 lb) deadlift at a bodyweight of about 104 pounds. Serena performed a series of lifts (four videos total) that have turned heads all over the internet. The first video shows a 136 kg (300 lb) followed by her new personal best of 150kg. Next, she performed a 68kg (150lb) bench press and then a 100kg (220lb) squat to end her lifts for the day.

This new deadlift pr comes only 2 weeks after achieving another personal record in the deadlift. This is very impressive considering not every experienced lifter can beat their personal best twice in one month. This new pr means she is deadlifting over 3 times her current body weight, something that not every lifter is able to achieve in their lifetime.
Serena informs the readers “Excited to see what I can bring to collegiate nats“ (nationals). Fortunately, she’s not the only one who is excited to see what she brings to nationals. The comment sections on both the Instagram post and YouTube video are filled with comments showing support for her upcoming endeavors.
Now one thing you should know about Serena Abweh is that she suffered from an eating disorder in her younger years which stemmed from self-image issues, and it really took a toll on her in many ways. But thankfully, she was able to turn it around and now she’s achieving incredible powerlifting feats such as the ones you just saw.
It’s amazing to see what someone like Serena has accomplished and what she overcame to get to this point. And one thing is for sure, she isn’t the only one looking forward to seeing what she brings to the collegiate nationals. We wish her the best of luck going forward.
