Prescillia Bavoil Lifts 41kg Over Her World Record Total In Training

The -63kg champion's total was also 11.5kg above the -72kg world record total!

2019 European Powerlifting Federation (EPF) European Classic Championships -63kg winner Prescillia “Lya” Bavoil of France had an incredible training session this past weekend where she totaled 555kg/1,223.6lb at her competition bodyweight.

That was enough to surpass her own International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) world record total of 514kg/1,133lb in the -63kg weight class by a full 41kg/90lb.

All the more impressive is the fact that it was also 11.5kg/25lb more than the world record total of 543.5/1,198lb in the -72kg class set by Angelina Elovikova of Russia.

Here were Bavoil’s stats from her training session:

  • Squat — 215kg/474lb
    • 23kg/51lb more than her current -63kg class world record of 193kg/425.5lb.
    • 11.5kg/25lb more than Angelina Elovikova’s current -72kg class world record of 203.5kg/448.6lb.
  • Bench Press — 115kg/253lb 
  • Deadlift — 225kg/496lb
    • 3.5kg/7.7lb more than the current -63kg world record of 221.5kg/488lb by Samantha Calhoun of the United States.
  • Total — 555kg/1,223.6lb

Training for World Records

This would-be record breaking gym total is a long time coming for Bavoil who has shared her progress over the last six to seven months. During that time, she lifted above world records on multiple occasions.

Back in January, she hit a 200kg/441lb squat on her birthday — 7kg/15lb over her current world record. As recent as last week, she’s been performing doubles with that weight.

In February, she tacked on an extra 4.5kg/10lb to best that world record by 11.8kg/26lb with a 205kg/451lb squat. Not much later she flirted near Calhoun’s world record with a 220lb/485kg deadlift.

When Bavoil has the opportunity to compete on the world stage again, expect her to rewrite the record books.
