Jessica Buettner at 2022 CPU Nationals

  • Squat: 217.5 kilograms (479.5 pounds)
  • Bench Press: 107.5 kilograms (237 pounds)
  • Deadlift: 252.5 kilograms (556.7 pounds)
  • Total: 577.5 kilograms (1,273.2 pounds)

Note: Buettner’s squat, deadlift, and Total are unofficial IPF Open Classic world records. Her bench press is a new Canadian national record. 

Since this competition was only accessible domestically for Canadian powerlifters, Buettner’s squat, deadlift, and Total are ineligible to be considered valid IPF world records. 

According to Open Powerlifting, Buettner has been competing since 2014. Before winning her first world championship in 2021, she placed second at the 2019 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships. She had also won the Junior championship in her class in 2016 and 2018. 

Buettner shared a video by White Lights Media that showed highlights of her day, which you can check out below:

Buettner revealed on social media that her squat (performed in knee sleeves) was an improvement on her previous best in a meet by 7.5 kilograms. This was a significant milestone for Buettner, as she missed her third attempt of 218 kilograms (480.6 pounds) at the 2021 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships.

The bench and deadlift were both 2.5-kilogram upgrades to her previous bests, and the Total was an upgrade by 14.5 kilograms. It was only on May 4, 2022, that Buettner deadlifted 250 kilograms for a double in preparation for this meet.

Prior to that, she had squatted an unofficial world record of 220 kilograms under the watchful eye of bodybuilding legend four-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler
