Sherine Marcelle, a well-known powerlifter, recently achieved a new raw deadlift three-rep personal record of 227.5 kilograms (501.6 pounds). She proudly shared a video of her accomplishment on Instagram, where she also revealed that this was 6 pounds (2.7 kilograms) heavier than her previous three-rep PR. What’s even more impressive is that she achieved this without using any equipment, not even a lifting belt.
In the caption of her post, Sherine Marcelle emphasized that she completed the three-rep PR “Belt-less”. To do so, she utilized a technique which combined a sumo stance with a mixed grip and some chalk to lift the weight. This highlights her dedication to lifting raw, without any external support.
Sherine Marcelle’s dedication and hard work are evident in her consistent progress. Despite not competing for some time, she continues to train and improve her lifts. She mentioned in her post that her next appearance is just three weeks away, although she has not specified which contest she will be participating in. Regardless, she seems ready to take on anyone who challenges her.
“So grateful for the people that showed up and continue to show up for me. This is the strongest I have felt and the most I’ve shown up for me.”
Sherine Marcelle did not reveal what her bodyweight was at the time of the lift, but she has been competing in the 90-kilogram weight class for the past four years. Speaking of which, Sherine is one of the greatest lifters in her division, despite not holding any World Records currently. However, she has previously crushed unofficial World Records in training. Sherine needs to repeat the feat in an official competition in order to achieve her goal.
Sherine Marcelle has taken part in 13 sanctioned competitions over the past seven years, and won on ten occasions. Judging by this, it is obvious that Sherine does not compete too often, but her training sessions don’t stop regardless.
