The sport of strongwoman might be not solely extremely demanding but in addition a troublesome and aggressive sport to make a reputation for one’s self. Inez Carrasquillo, a rising star within the sport, doesn’t have this drawback. Her newest astonishing feat is a 136-kilogram (300-pound) log press carried out on Feb 2., 2022. It breaks (unofficially) the present world report and is a strongwoman’s heaviest press ever accomplished from the ground.
You can watch the elevate beneath, initially posted to Carrasquillo’s Instagram.
According to Carrasquillo’s caption, the elevate was “300X1 on the worst log ever.” And, apparently, this has been one thing the strongwoman has been in pursuit of for a short time: “Been chasing a 300lb press off the ground and I needed this win,” she added.
Carrasquillo’s 300-pound press shatters the earlier world report by two and a half kilos, set by Andrea Thompson throughout 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 proper aggressive setting, the report will not be but hers. The final time Carrasquillo did formally compete was when she completed fourth throughout late final yr’s World’s Strongest Woman, in response to BarBend.
It’s vital to differentiate 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 profitable the famed Log Press for Reps section. There, she pressed a 106.5-kilogram (235-pound) log 12 occasions. And in a one other coaching session, Carrasquillo hoisted an axle bar loaded with 300 kilos overhead thrice.
But it’s her current 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 locally, 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 elevate 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, large strides are undoubtedly on the horizon for Carrasquillo. For somebody who has claimed to need to be the world’s strongest lady previously, how might 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 count on extra fireworks from Carrasquillo in entrance of the larger energy world at giant.
