Biggest Lifts Week 3: Dan Bell Deadlifts 855 lbs, Jessica Buettner Reps 405 lbs, and More!

Every week, we're counting down our top five favorite lifts!

Each week we’re fired up by the big lifts we see. We see athletes across all the various strength sports putting up huge numbers, testing their limits, and crushing both personal and national/world records. We closed out September and kicked off October with some of our favorite lifts from September 29th through October 6th.

Keep in mind that these are only five of the big lifts that went down last week or so and we make this videos every week!

Fair warning and just a small teaser we have one powerlifter crushing through 14 reps and another athlete blowing us all away with her clean & jerk performance.
