Now 15 years old, powerlifter Jake Schellenschlager began his journey to becoming one of the world’s strongest kids when he was 12. At 14 years of age, Jake entered a weight lifting competition in Pennsylvania. Weighing in at just 119 lbs, he successfully squatted 225 lbs and bench pressed 205 lbs. But, where this teenager left his mark was in the dead lift competition. There, Jake succeeded in lifting 300 lbs – well over twice his body weight and a record for his age and weight class.
