36-year old Brad Castleberry from the US is one of the strongest powerlifters in the world.
Brad Castleberry weighs around 245-255 lbs, and his height is 5’10.
He has a bodybuilder’s physique, is ripped, and could arguably do well in bodybuilding if he wanted to.
Brad is a controversial icon in the fitness scene, claiming to have squatted 855 lbs, and he even recorded himself bench pressing 675 lbs for two reps.
With Brad’s impressive strength and physique, he has become famous and has almost 1 million followers on Instagram.
However, many people believe he uses fake weights in some of the lifts.
Brad is firm that the weights are real, and he is this strong; however, he has never proved himself in a powerlifting competition, and the lifts he has performed in some of his videos would make him a powerlifting champion if he would perform them at a real competition.
Even with the fake weights controversy, there is no denying that Brad is freakishly strong, and in his recent chest workout footage, you can see Brad Rep out 200 lbs in the dumbbell bench press for reps.
