Legendary powerlifter Jen Thompson keeps raising the bar — literally. The 11-time International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) World Classic Bench Press Champion posted a video on Instagram of her bench-pressing 330 pounds, raw. Thompson has competed in the -63 kilogram and -72 kilogram categories (or 138 and 158 pounds). So, pound for pound, that means the 47-year-old pushed close to 2.4-times her body weight over her chest.
