Meet Russian weightlifting sensation Maryana Naumova, who, at 12 years old, was the youngest girl to ever bench 154 pounds. Well, the impressive teenager was back in action with this video from the MHP Power Pit at the 2013 Arnold Classic, where she left the crowd speechless with her next show of strength. Now 13 years old, little Maryana started with a 220-pound lift, then followed up with a lift of 230 before successfully tackling an astounding 240 pounds!
If the scale of how impressive that feat is for a 13-year-old girl isn’t quite sinking in for you, most grown men struggle to bench press 225 pounds. Maryana Naumova soon hopes to find herself in the Guinness Book of Records. As she has become the first girl under 15 to bench press an incredible 240 pounds. I know her form is a bit unique but keep in mind this is power lifting and not bodybuilding.
