60-Kilogram Powerlifter Emily Hu Bench Presses 137.4 Kilograms (303 Pounds) In Virtual Meet

Some lifts trick the eye. Sometimes a powerlifter will perform a lift — squat, bench press, deadlift, some accessory movement — and it will appear as though gravity and the laws of physics have, but for a brief moment, shut off. That is what it was like to watch Emily Hu bench press a kilo over the all-time world record with her 137.4-kilogram (303-pound) lift at a bodyweight of 59 kilograms (130 pounds).

Check out Hu’s bench press in the video below courtesy of her Instagram page.
