The sport of strongwoman might be not solely extremely demanding but in addition a tough and aggressive sport to make a title for one’s self. Inez Carrasquillo, a rising star within the sport, doesn’t have this downside. Her newest astonishing feat is a 136-kilogram (300-pound) log press carried out on Feb 2., 2022. It breaks (unofficially) the present world document and is a strongwoman’s heaviest press ever accomplished from the ground.
You can watch the raise beneath, initially posted to Carrasquillo’s Instagram.
According to Carrasquillo’s caption, the raise was “300X1 on the worst log ever.” And, apparently, this has been one thing the strongwoman has been in pursuit of for a few minutes: “Been chasing a 300lb press off the ground and I needed this win,” she added.
Carrasquillo’s 300-pound press shatters the earlier world document by two and a half kilos, set by Andrea Thompson in the course of the World Ultimate Strongman’s “Feats of Strength Series” in July 2020. However, as a result of Carrasquillo didn’t full the press in a formal aggressive setting, the document is not but hers. The final time Carrasquillo did formally compete was when she completed fourth throughout late final 12 months’s World’s Strongest Woman, based on BarBend.
It’s essential to tell apart between the log Carrasquillo lifted, how she managed the press, and the one Thompson lifted. Carrasquillo had a extra compressed log with bumper plates connected farther out, whereas Thompson used a wider, extra prolonged log. To wit, Carrasquillo started her press from the ground, whereas log presses normally begin from elevated pads.
Carrasquillo, a third-place finisher within the 2021 Official Strongman Games, confirmed off her immense urgent potential by successful the famed Log Press for Reps phase. There, she pressed a 106.5-kilogram (235-pound) log 12 instances. And in a one other coaching session, Carrasquillo hoisted an axle bar loaded with 300 kilos overhead 3 times.
But it’s her latest log press feat that drew the eye of the energy world. The “Texas Titan,” Gabriel Pena, had nothing however reward for the intense up and comer.
“Absolutely incredible [Inez]! I very much look forward to watching you write new pages in the books of history over the coming years.”
Elsewhere in the neighborhood, Thompson herself had but to remark about Carrasquillo’s feat publicly. But her coach, Laurence Shahlaei—an completed strongman himself—famous that he thought Carrasquillo’s raise was “Awesome.”
Finally, Canadian World’s Strongest Man lifter and the proprietor of the Hummer Tire Deadlift World Record, JF Caron, interjected just by sustaining, “That’s very impressive.”
With an eye-popping second like this behind her, huge strides are undoubtedly on the horizon for Carrasquillo. For somebody who has claimed to need to be the world’s strongest girl prior to now, how may they not be?
According to her coach Alec Pagan, Carrasquillo is competing within the 2022 Arnold Amateur Strongman Championships from Mar. 3-5. If this titanic of a log press foreshadows what the close to future holds, we are able to solely anticipate extra fireworks from Carrasquillo in entrance of the better energy world at massive.
