5 Huge Performances From Boss of Bosses 6 Powerlifting Meet

Multiple all-time world records have fallen!

Over the weekend, the Boss of Bosses 6 powerlifting meet went down in Mountain View, California. Every year, this famed powerlifting meet brings out some of the world’s best athletes and this year, like every year in the past, did not disappoint.

In case you were away for the extended weekend, we wanted to take a moment to highlight five of the biggest performances from the Boss of Bosses 6 powerlifting meet. It’s also worth recognizing that these are only six of the biggest performances and the meet itself had over 100 athletes take the platform!

6 Huge Boss of Bosses Performances

1. Yury Belkin Totals 2,305 lbs

Very rarely does Belkin compete without breaking a record…or two. On Friday, Belkin put on an incredibly strong rounded performance in the 220 lb weight class and broke two all-time world records for the squat (wraps) and total.

  • Squat: 416kg/917 lbs – ATWR (Wraps)
  • Bench Press: 235kg/518 lbs
  • Deadlift 415kg/914 lbs
  • Total: 1,066kg/2,305 lbs – ATWR
  • Wilks Score: 648.76

2. Chakera Ingram Squats 650 lbs


Chakera Ingram continues to build upon her legendary resume. While Ingram didn’t quite have the meet she wanted, she was still able to crush two all-time world records for the squat and total, and tied the current bench press ATWR in the women’s 181 lb weight class.

  • Squat: 295kg/650 lbs – ATWR (Wraps)
  • Bench Press: 170kg/374.8 lbs 
  • Deadlift 272kg/600 lbs
  • Total: 737kg/1,625 lbs – ATWR

3. Julius Maddox Breaks Kirill Sarychev’s ATWR Bench Press

Julius Maddox has finally broken Kirill Sarychev’s long standing 308+ all-time world record bench press. Back in 2015, Sarychev benched 335kg/738.5 lbs, and tackling that record has been a long-time goal for Maddox. After a close call re-racking the weight, Maddox was finally able to relax and bask in his new ATWR glory.

  • Bench Press: 335.5kg/739.6 lbs – ATWR

Best and failed lifts from #bossofbosses6 yesterday–Squat 285kg/628lb (WR). Bench 150kg/330lb and a miss at 155kg/341lb (not strong enough). Deadlift 255kg/562lb (WR) and a miss at 260kg/573lb. When I watched the video I realized my right hand opened up on my third (and almost my second attempt) and I should've asked for the bar to be cleaned. #powerliftingexcuses But overall very happy with the lifts that I did make and my total of 690kg/1521lb in the 75kg/165lb weight class (a 40kg increase on the WR and a 657 Wilks). Thanks to everyone at @bossbarbellclub, @danandsparkle (@dangreenpowerlifter, @bossladysparkle) for hosting the meet and creating such a great place to train. It really is family. @herbietheluvbug @terriboo621 @davydoesntdocardio @_kylemckee @alex_milhouse @squat_with_your_arms @dialect1luv @he_man_the_pug #kevinwithnoinstagram #otherpeoplewhoseinstagramsidontknow #ionlyfollowdoggos #pugsandpowerlifting
