Is This Kid The Strongest Teen in The World?

Hey guys, this isnt a video of me, I’ve been watching this kid’s videos and I dont know him at all, but the man is 19 years old and squatting 750 raw in competition! From what I’ve seen his bench isnt up to par with his other lifts, but his squat and deadlift are ridiculous. He also said he hasnt used any roids. For some reason he gets almost no views. He seems like a really nice guy by his comments, so I’m making this thread just to hopefully get some exposure for him and he looks like he has a very bright future in powerlifting.

I can’t find a “Matt Sohmer” in any results on the ADAU page. What meet was this?

I have no idea. I’ve seen other videos on his channel though, and one of the videos is him squatting 761 at the aau junior olympics. I have no idea about these federations specifically, but looking at the videos I dont doubt their legitimacy

I’m not doubting it, but I want to see what the rest of the competition looks like. I looked at the records and I couldn’t find his name; of course, if this meet just happened really recently, the record applications might not even be sent in yet.

Ok I gotcha now. Yeah I dont know about any of the details. All i know is the kid might be something crazy in terms of setting squat records. I really wonder how he will develop being that strong that young

I just lifted this past weekend at the final ADAU meet, with Matt in attendance. I believe that was his first meet in ADAU/100% Raw. They allow a belt only, and drug test. They always have very strict judging for depth on squats and pause on bench.

This kid is REALLY freaking strong. I would expect him to be up there with Stan and Eric in the future.

My Total is now 1746.75 pounds drug free with just a belt and no knee wraps… this total isnt that high. this total doesnt include my true maxes
next meet i will crush it with an 800+ squat 735+ deadlift 315 bench. i had a 800 pound squat in me on sunday you can tell by how 750 came up so fast. i messed up on my 1st attempt so i had t repeat it, so my 4th attempt was 782, 782 was light but in all honest i shit myself i didnt go before i squatted lol but i lost my balance and my tightness/pressure. when you see the 782 youll see just as im coming up i jerk forward thats when it happened, if that didnt happen i would of easily gotten it
