Powerlifter Jaisyn Mike Unofficially Breaks Two of His IPF World Records

Powerlifter Jaisyn Mike calls himself “Mr. Athletic Over Everything” and competes in the M1 division with athletes aged between 40 and 50 years old. That doesn’t stop him from having some of the most impressive lifts in the sport and earlier this summer at the 2018 IPF World Championships, he even held the all-time open world record in the bench press for a few short days until Ilyas Boughalem broke it by 500 grams.

He also holds several M1 all-time world records in the IPF: the squat (330kg/ 727.5lb), bench press (281kg/ 620lb) and total (923.5kg/ 2,036lb). This weekend, he unofficially broke his squat and total records at the USAPL Summer Fest. While the USAPL is affiliated with the IPF this wasn’t an international competition, so these aren’t official IPF records, but they’re still superb lifts — especially the squat, which was a huge twenty-three pound PR for the man.

We loved that surprised/impressed look he had after making the heaviest squat of his entire life.

He posted with the caption,

Here is my full meet recap:
TOTAL: 2045 LBS as a M1 LIFTER.

This was a bittersweet meet… I had the squat of my life but my bench fell flat. I most definitely needed rest but my squat was moving so we’ll I needed to see what I could do. This was my first meet ever opening at 700 on squat so this was a huge confidence booster going into Raw Nationals where I will squat 771 plus to go along with a 620 + pound bench and 760 plus deadlift.

This 2,045lb (927.6kg) total also broke his total record by nine pounds.

Mike shared on Reddit that next year, he’s planning to cut and compete as a -120kg athlete. With a little luck on his part, we can look forward to seeing some new records fall in that weight class.

I’m a journalist and content producer with over seven years' reporting experience on four continents, with most of that spent covering health-related issues. My resume includes covering cholera outbreaks in Kenya and the clubbing scene in Shanghai, which is also where I wrote my first ever health article for an English language magazine. (It was on diarrhea.)After returning to Australia to finish up degrees in Journalism and International Relations I wound up in New York City where I’ve worked for Men’s Health, VICE, Popular Science and others. I try to keep health relatively simple — it’s mostly vegetables and sweat — but I live to explore the debates, the fringes, the niche, and the nitty gritty.
