The caption of Aldrige’s Instagram post sharing his clean & jerk PR was filled with humility:

I’m honored to be a small part in showing others we are all far more capable than we know.

Aldridge hit the milestone 200-pound clean & jerk in 2019. He has put a lot of focus towards further improving that lift over the past two years and it has served him well. With this PR out of the way, he has his sights set on hitting 250 pounds.

Here were the final standings from the Upper Extremity division from the competition:
