Powerlifter Amanda Lawrence Squats 6 Plates (585 lbs) #Roadto600

December 27th 2018

Did you read that right? Amanda Lawrence squatting 6 plates? 585 lbs? ONLY 15 more pounds until 600…

 

Yes, it’s true folks.

 

Women who lift big weights… it is no longer fantasy. It is no longer a myth.

 

Introducing Amanda Lawrence, a 21 year old powerlifter who is changing the idea of strength right in front of our eyes.

 

In October 2018, Amanda Lawrence competed in USAPL Raw Nationals in Spokane, Washington and broke 2 American records with a 239 kg/ 525.8 lbs 2nd attempt squat and a 245.5 kg/540.1 lbs 3rd attempt deadlift. With that she totaled 591 kg/1303 lbs, which is a huge PR for her. Even with these great lifts, we placed second. Regardless though, this Greek goddess weighs only 84 kilograms, which places her Wilk score at 529.57. It is already a fantastic result!

 

And if that is unbelievable… you have not seen anything yet!

“6 PLATE DINNER {585 LBS} PR #Roadto600...”

 

Amanda Lawrence squatting the 6 plate dinner. The big 6 plates. This is 585 lbs.

 

Holy cow. And with just under two month left for the 2019 Arnold Sports Festival, which is held from February 28th to March 3rd next year. We can be sure to expect the unexpected.

 

Here is another feat of greatness.

A 585 lbs deadlift with straps. She did this three days ago. And three days later, she blows the powerlifting community away with another beastly display of strength.

 

 

Impressed? More stunned with disbelief.

 

Will Amanda Lawrence hit 600 lbs on both her squat and the deadlift for the Arnold Festival? It sure looks that way… since she has already improved over 50+ pounds in her squat and 40+ pounds in her deadlift in about two months.

 

A lot could happen and only time will tell. But she is training hard and I look forward to seeing new PRs from her.
