This wrecking ball of a performance came at the MHSAA Powerlifting state championships. He finished first in the super heavyweight class with a 310-pound bench press, a 545-pound deadlift, plus his record-breaking squat, according to the Ocean Springs Powerlifting Twitter account. He lifted 1,685 pounds total, and we don’t have to tell you that’s a lot of weight for a high school senior to be moving.

A local reporter was also on the scene, and he took to Twitter to confirm the specifics of the record.

In addition to dominating weightlifting, Jupiter is a tackle for his high school football team, and we’re sure the devastation that he could inflict onto the opposing defensive line is no joke. Although football has a lot to do with leverage, his brute strength is for sure an asset on the field.

Jupiter is still young, and it would be wise to keep an eye on his career moving forward.
