Zac Meyers (140 kg) achieves a wide ranging world document whole of 1,077.four kilograms (2,375.four kilos)

Meyers once again distinguished himself as a titan among men.

Zac Meyers is used to lifting unimaginable weights – that’s what a look at his workout-heavy Instagram profile says. Although this 29-year-old powerlifting star clearly excels in several force fields.

On June 17, 2023, at the bottom of the World Raw Powerlifting Federation (WRPF) King of the Cave 3, Meyers recorded one gross vehicle weight of 1,077.4 kilograms (2,375.4 pounds).. The number is official an absolute raw world record in the 140-kilogram competition class and brought victory to Meyers. It’s the latest in a string of notable achievements for a prolific athlete in the powerlifting world.

To break his world record, Meyers hit a best-ever raw-competition squat at 404.9 kilograms (892.8 pounds), a best-ever raw-competition bench press at 285 kilograms (628.3 pounds), and a record all-time best-in-competition Deadlift at 387.5 kilograms (854.3 pounds). The athlete wore a lifting belt, knee wraps, and wrist wraps during his squat. Meyers used a lifting belt and wrist wraps on the bench press and just a belt on the deadlift.

According to the Open Powerlifting Database, Meyers now holds the all-time world record in two separate divisions. In addition to his latest brand, Meyers also holds the world record of 1,054.9 kilograms (2,325.8 pounds) in the 125 kilogram class. He conquered that mark en route to a first place finish at the 2022 WRPF American Pro.

Here’s a rundown of the top stats from Meyers’ most recent competitive appearance:
