Russian Athlete Achieve World Record Underwater Bench Press

Vitaly Vivchar (Athlete) from Tomsk (Siberia) is the current world record holder for underwater bench press after rocking out an incredible 50kg/110lbs 76 reps. The feat exceeded that of the United States' previous world record holder, American Greg Wittstock, who completed 62 reps in 2019.

Now, maybe you'd think that 110 lbs are "lightweight" but 76 reps take a lot of strength and experience while holding your breath in the water.

After learning about it Vivchar was really motivated to try and break the record. Plus, being an experienced diver, and having won the bench press tournaments, combining the two made perfect sense for him.

Since that's his native language, the video was in Russian, but he believed that if someone other could do it, well, he also had the experience to shoot it.

"I believed that I had enough skills to do it myself: I have the experience of winning competitions in the bench press. I am an amateur diver too. And I had applied for a new record.

Before his official world record, he must present the correct documents that he is actually in the process of doing.
