Hunter Labrada lifts 265.Three kilograms (585 kilos) for PR with four reps

Although better known for his physique, Labrada isn’t lacking in strength either.

Hunter Labrada vowed to push hard after a disappointing seventh place finish at the 2022 Mr. Olympia. Labrada had hoped to build on a fourth-place finish that put him on the bodybuilding map at the 2021 Mr. Olympia. Over five months later, as of this writing and on the brink of the summer of 2023, Labrada appears to be delivering on his personal promise to compete in the gym.

On May 23, 2023, Labrada shared an Instagram clip of herself Record a deadlift weighing 265.3 kilograms (585 pounds) for four reps. According to the title of his post, it’s a four-rep train set a lifetime personal record (PR) for Labrada. The bodybuilder performed his deadlift reps in socks while wearing a lifting belt and using lifting straps.

This four-rep deadlift PR isn’t the only example of Labrada staying true to his training promise so he can perform better at the 2023 Mr. Olympia. If anything, Labrada’s attempt to improve his powers as a bodybuilder could be described as something beyond himself.

In early February 2023, Labrada clarified that he would aim for a leaner physique in his career. His goal now is more on the aesthetics of his physique and being a little more toned than focusing on sheer size. Labrada recently detailed his current pull workout during practice for the 2023 Tampa Pro, scheduled to be held August 3-5, 2023 in Tampa Bay, Florida. Because of the new qualification standards for the 2023 Mr. Olympia, which grant automatic spots only to past winners and top-five finishers, Labrada must win a competition like the Tampa Pro to compete at the Olympia in November.

On stage, Labrada was one of the many Men’s Open contenders to guest at the Pittsburgh Pro 2023 in mid-May 2023. The other athletes like Derek Lunsford, Nick Walker and Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay are examples of rivals that Labrada will face in an attempt to overcome this November at the 2023 Olympics in Orlando, Fla.

In such a stacked overall Men’s Open field, it could be a very challenging task for anyone who excels at the 2023 Olympia, let alone Labrada himself. Given his consistent approach to training in calendar year 2023, Labrada appears to be taking additional steps to excel accordingly.
