Crystal Tate is now the first woman in the world to deadlift an insane 600 pounds in the 198-pound weight class. By successfully deadlifting a 600 pounds raw, she became the first woman in the 198-pound class to deadlift such an insane weight.
This feat was performed at the XPC ASF Finals Full Power meet during the past month, March, and despite a few critics said the lockout appears to be dubious, however; the call was already made. Another girl who appeared in the tournament, named Nicole Ordway attempted a successful raw squat of 485 lbs.
Tate made her ground and deadlifted 600 freaking pounds at the Arnold Classic and made it look like a casual day in the gym. That is a weight that most monster-sized men fail to achieve.
She shattered her previous record of 573 pounds set in December.
It’s the dream of every powerlifter to have his name in the powerlifting history, even if it’s in a single sentence. This achievement of Tate will last for decades to come and will be an inspiration for many.
Crystal squatted a jaw-dropping 700 pounds in December, along with her previous record deadlift. During her deadlift, she wore knee wraps and a belt.
Although in her squat, the depth was questioned, but the judges spoke and gave her white lights. You may disagree with the call on her deadlift, but even daring to attempt this record would leave you with a broken back and dislocated arms.
