Mitchell Hooper With a New Split Jerk Personal Best

Mitchell Hooper is one of the biggest names in the world of strongmen, and recently, he has been more than impressive with his lifts. On social media, last year’s winner of the title World’s Strongest Man has been sharing a lot of his training sessions, as well as attempts at Olympic lifts, and yesterday, we got the most impressive video so far.

In a short clip posted on his Instagram profile, the Canadian managed to break his own personal best on the split jerk exercise by lifting the incredible 215 kg. 

This is a remarkable lift from Hooper, who is overseen by another legend of the sport Martins Licis, who won the title of world’s strongest man 5 years ago now in 2019. 

In the last few weeks, Mitchell Hooper has been dipping his toe in the world of Olympic weightlifting and has managed to perform some quite impressive movements. It all started when he did 3 sets of 185 kg on the split jerk movement around a month ago – with quite good technique while making it all look so simple.
