Donnie Thompson on his New World Record Total, set in November 2008 in York, PA at the powerlifting nationals.

Donnie squatted 1235lbs, Benched 910lbs, and deadlifted 760lbs.



This was the first total in powerlifting over 2900lbs. Donnie Thompson finished the day at the 2008 IPA Nationals with 2905lbs. beating his previous total by 55lbs.

Nice find demostenes. (Rep) I'm wondering if he did all three events in one day. I agree with PrinceVegeta 760lbs deadlift for a guy that can squat 1235lbs???

though what he did was very impressive i have to agree. how in the world do you bench that much more than you deadlift being a powerlifter? a lot of it is the assistance gear.

I saw this video in December. To defend him powerlifting style on squats is much different with more of an emphasis placed on the hips. Also Deadlift is the last lift done so fatigue sets in by that point.

Donnie is the co-owner of the Gym I work out at home called Jungle Gym. I actually trained with Donnie a couple of times there. Hes an amazing guy and really down to earth. When I trained with him he was teaching me how to use kettlebells to help me with football. Donnie spent a few years in Arena Football himself. He weighs around 375lbs.

haha the good news I'm not even talking about the same gym. They are split up. Both of them are bad ass though. Jungle Gym is literally 5mins from my house. Thats the main reason I love that place, its hardcore, chains and bands, and its right down the road. The other one is on the other side of town, but hell we could go train at both of them. They both are fantastic. The other one is called South Carolina Barbell, I think I actually saw it on a video on musculardevelopment where the guys were training there for the palmetto cup. You should come and we should go to the Palmetto Cup this summer, it takes place in June.
