Powerlifter Kasemsand Senumong (66 kg) deadlifts 320 kilograms (705 kilos) for super PR and unofficial world report
Senumong’s traction speaks for itself.
On March 9, 2023, the King of the Lifts Instagram page posted one of powerlifter Kasemsand Senumong’s final Raw deadlift build-up sessions. The clip shows Senumong pulling 70, 120, 170, 220, 260, 290, 310 and 320 kilograms (ranging from 154.3 to 705 pounds) from a sumo stance with the assistance of a sling during a breathtaking workout.
According to Open Powerlifting, the last deadlift in the clip is – 320 kilograms (705 pounds) – 19.7 kilograms (43.6 pounds) more than Senumong’s all-time raw food competition. This competitive move is also the all-time raw world record for the 66-kilogram division under the jurisdiction of the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF). The athlete achieved that mark along with the total raw world record (710.5 kilograms/1,566.4 pounds) during the 2022 Asian Powerlifting Federation (AsianPF) Championships.

Senumong, sometimes referred to as Sensei Opor, posted the original video clip as part of a workout montage on his own Instagram page on January 13, 2023, but it was recently reposted on his gym’s page. The recent re-release brought the powerhouse to the attention of King of the Lifts, who regularly post powerlifting PRs from lifters around the web.
A dominant force on the Asian continental powerlifting scene for several years, Senumong has been both the reigning Thailand national champion at 66 kg and the Asian Powerlifting Federation (AsianPR) continental champion. Based on his deadlift finish, it looks like the young man in his late 20s is ready to add another title to his resume.
Here’s a rundown of Senumong’s all-time raw competitive bests:
Kasem Sand Senumong (66KG) | All-Time Raw Competitive Best
- squatting — 255.4 kilograms (563.2 pounds)
- bench press – 155 kilograms (341.7 pounds)
- deadlift — 300 kilograms (661.4 pounds) | IPF World Record
- In total — 710.5 kilograms (1,566.3 pounds) | IPF World Record
After placing seventh in the 66kg class on his debut at the 2022 IPF World Championships, Senumong is likely not done yet. Apparently the competitor wants to go one better this summer. Even if he doesn’t come out on top, he can drastically improve his initial performance.
Should Senumong carry over his recent top deadlift training to the 2023 IPF World Championships in Valetta, Malta, it seems obvious that he will extend his two record streaks and possibly take home a world title. Swede Eddie Berglund is the reigning 66kg world champion and the 2023 IPF World Championships competition is scheduled for June 11-18, 2023.

Statistically, Senumong could already be the best 140-pound powerlifting competitor in the world. He just has to show it on the biggest IPF stage. In this regard, next June could become a fruitful and historic event for the athlete.
