Brandon Gerdes 705lb deadlift record
Hey guys I just set the new USPA American deadlift record in the 242lbs class. 705lb lift. I weighed in at 222lbs. This is just 2lbs away from the lower weight class. I have ulcerative colitis and had a flare cause me to drop 22lbs or so in 3 weeks as I prepped for this meet.
I plan to do a few more meets and some bodybuilding shows this summer. I stay lean in the off season so prepping for a show is easy and I like using powerlifting to add some thickness.
Also, I think it's badass when guys are successful in both sports. Why not simultaneously??
Anyways here is the vid, I was pumped. It was a lot of fun.
