April Mathis Trains for RUM

To follow is training footage at Orlando Barbell of April Mathis (shw) preparing for the unsanctioned Raw Unity Meet which will be held on January 30-31 in Tampa, Florida. Mathis owns the biggest raw total in powerlifting history (1,405 pounds) and second biggest raw bench press in history (370 pounds).

Mathis likely will be pushed in the middleweight division by the number four ranked raw lifter in America, Taylar Stallings, and Amy Weisberger.

In the video, Mathis squats up to 485 pounds for two reps.

Also featured are fellow RUM competitors Brian Schwab and Daniel Tinajero, as well as Greg Godwin.

So I can't say that April Mathis is a strong lady? Why was my post deleted?

That is just f'in amazing, wow! That's one of the most exciting things I've seen on here. 485 for a double raw, damn!

Awesome ... I'm a 240 pound man and I'm not sure I can squat 485 for a legit double these days ...

Respect for April.

Nice lifting by the whole crew. April's 485x2 in just knee sleeves & a belt is insane. 500+ competition raw squat and dead and closing in on a 400 raw bench...at only about 21 years old?? WOW!!!

Wow! Can't wait to see this showdown.
