Richard Hawthorne 700 On The Horizon?

Sun, 06/02/2019 - 22:54 -- admin
One of the best powerlifters in the world pound for pound Richard Hawthorne has set his sights on a 700 lb pull at 132! The greatest pull at this bodyweight is 683 by the legendary Lamar Gant. Richard is second behind him with 639. Although I do believe there has been a 661 done in past Russian competitions but finding such records is very difficult. Never the less, Richard is now on the "Road to 700"., if he is able to achieve this feat it will most definitely be among the greatest lifts ever done! We wait and see.. Here is footage of him pulling 590 for 3 raw!

Rise of Women's Powerlifting

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 22:48 -- admin
In 1973 Jan Todd began her illustrious career. She became the first woman to deadlift over 400 pounds, squat over 400 pounds, total 1000, 1100 and total over 1200! She was the first female powerlifting superstar. During that time another great was Ann Turbyne Andrews. She was a shot put sensation who burst on the scene in the late 1970s, winning the 1980 IPF Wolrds with a 451 squat 253 bench at 468 deadlift! She retired shortly after but made her mark on the powerlifting world. Then a new chapter in women's lifting began with the emergence of Bev Francis!
