You read that right…385lbs (175kg) at 15 years old, and with a body weight of only 152lbs! Congrats to young gun CJ Cummings for smashing the American Senior Record in the clean and jerk this weekend at the USA Weightlifting National Championships in Dallas!
The lift also beat the Youth World Record. This kid has a very, very bright future ahead of him!

15 year old @cj__cummings (-69kg, USA) clean and jerking 175kg/385lb to set a new youth, junior and senior American record in the C&J and total. It is also an unofficial Youth World Record — which currently stands at 173kg. Just last year he made 153kg at 62kg which is also a senior American record. He is completely rewriting the American record books and he only turned 15 in June!
