Even if you’re new to the fitness industry, there’s one name that you would have definitely heard for sure. The one and only Larry Wheels, widely known for his insane PRs. Wheels never fails to amaze his fans with extreme lifts, and he has repeated the same feat yet again. 

The powerlifter posted a video of him deadlifting 700 pounds on his Instagram account, doing ten reps of such immense weight, going beyond a previous lift of 675 pounds. While the beginning of the session seemed easy enough for Wheels as he proceeded further, it seemed progressively difficult.

The powerlifter captioned the post, “700/320 x10 I started bleeding from my chest and face.” In the video, one could see how Wheels did five reps with ease. But as soon as he hit the sixth rep, he started bleeding from his chest. But the powerlifter didn’t give up and did the remaining four reps. Despite bleeding from the face and chest, Wheels completed all ten reps and broke the previous record he made last month.
