13-Year-Old Maryana Naumova Breaks Lifting Record at The Arnold

We already covered Russian weightlifting sensation Maryana Naumova, who, at 12 years old, was the youngest girl to ever bench 154 pounds.

Well, the impressive teenager was back in action in the MHP Power Pit at the 2013 Arnold Classic, where she left the crowd speechless with her next show of strength. Now 13 years old, little Maryana started with a 220-pound lift, then followed up with a lift of 230 before successfully tackling an astounding 240 pounds! If the scale of how impressive that feat is for a 13-year-old girl isn't quite sinking in for you, check out this video of grown men struggling to bench press 225 pounds
