Watch 15-Year-Old Mahailya Reeves Bench Press 355 Pounds

ROB GOLDBERGJANUARY 26, 2019

 

Those who brag about their workouts at the gym should prepare to be humbled by Mahailya Reeves.

The 15-year-old freshman from Union County High School broke the Florida state record by benching 355 pounds while much of her school cheered:

 

This feat wasn't a fluke. Reeves posts her weightlifting videos on her Instagram account, including a 430-pound front squat.

Reeves didn't even seem to struggle with her bench press, which could indicate much more is coming from the young star. If she keeps up her pace, she could be a world-class weightlifter before long.

I am immediately skeptical about this...not the fact she did it, but about what exactly is going on.

 

Is this a dude?  That or is this young woman getting doped?  Does she have some kind of genetic. Disorder?

 

I could lift that the end of junior/ begining of senor year of highschool.  There was a kid in my highschool the size of a house who ended up playing O line on a good college team that could lift that his sophomore year...and he was a freak of a human being.

 

I know how strong that is. 

 

For a girl to be that strong at that age, I'm gonna go ahead and say that either something is seriously wrong, or somebody is doing something to a kid that's completely wrong.

WOW.

I Didn't bench 350 until I was a junior.

At 15  I was so horny I would have banged a cantaloupe, but I would have passed on that disaster.

Bizzerk pituitary gland?

I don't know, is it really that impressive being able to bench 1x your bodyweight?

Video title is misleading. I watched it, and I didn’t see a 15-year-old girl anywhere.

is that an NFL linebacker or a 15 year old?

She’s way bigger than a linebacker. 

O line or go fuck your mother.

Something ain't right, and somebody in the girls life should step in an find out what's going on.

 

Shes either a transgender guy, some criminal asshole is seriously juicing up a 15 year old child, or shes got something genetically askew that's going to effect her life and probably seriously shorten her lifespan.

 

It's cool she can do that, and I hope shes proud of her accomplishments at such a young age...but some things wrong there.

 

Also, that's gotta be horrifying as a young woman to be that person.   I cant think of a younger girl in my family who would want to be like that.  It would be a nightmare for most young girls

Is it dangerous to arch your back like that when lifting? I always thought it was poor form when I did it and tried not to. But I don’t know anything about lifting.

I agree, either she's being fed some crazy amount of androgens, or she has some sort of hyperandrogenism disorder.

 

PS I weighed 235 when I did 350, not exactly a pound for pound phenom.   LOL
