Nadia Stowers continues to impress during training with massive deadlifts.
Nadia Stowers has certainly made waves in powerlifting and is continuing to improve to this day. On Friday, the strongwoman took to Instagram to share her latest deadlift PR. Stowers approached 525 pounds on the bar and was able to complete three reps.
Stowers completed this lift with a lifting belt and lifting straps while using a conventional stance. During this workout, Stowers kept increasing the weight on the bar until she reached her three-rep max.
“DEATH BY DEADS! START LOW AND BUILD UP BY 20# TO A HEAVY TRIPLE. TOUCH N GO TO GET USED TO KEEPING THE TENSION IN THE BAR. REP PR OF 525 FOR MY TOP SET!! THESE WERE AWESOMELY TERRIBLE”
Nadia Stowers has been attacking deadlifts in recent weeks. She is scheduled to make an appearance at C.T. Fletcher’s Iron Wars on May 20. She last competed at the 2022 Clash on the Coast Strongwoman competition in the 82kg division.
Since first competing in 2019, Stowers has made plenty of noise in strongwoman. She won the 2019 U82 World’s Strongest Woman contest and holds two world records. Both lifts came during the 2021 Static Monsters Worldwide.
Nadia Stowers completed a 660-pound Axle Deadlift to grab her first world record and followed it up with a 288-pound log lift. This contributed to one of her professional victories over the course of her career. Prior to setting the Axle Deadlift world record, Stowers matched the lift, previously held by Kim Derks at 650.4-pounds in 2019. Now, Stowers holds the record by herself.
Stowers seems to be putting in some big work in order to take home another victory in two weeks. If there is a deadlift event at Fletcher’s event, Stowers has a chance to put up even higher numbers. If her training is any indication, Stowers is preparing to do something special when the time comes.
