For anyone who isn’t a complete freak of nature (aka normal genetics/build) the general rule of thumb on how much they should be able to squat is 1.5x their body weight. This chick right here, 125-pound Gabrielle Tucker who stands at 5’5″ and is 21-years-old, well after seeing her weightlifting routine and watching her squat 300-pounds (video just below) I’m convinced that she’s an absolute freak of nature.

Gabrielle Tucker is squatting 2.4 times her body weight and she’s breaking records in the process because she’s now holds the IPF Deadlift World Record Jr. 57kg (*USAPL/IPF) for the 125/pound body weight 21-years-old age category. Below is her weightlifting/fitness routine, but first here is the video of her squatting 300-pounds:

Gabrielle Tucker’s 300-pound squat went viral after her Instagram video spread like wildfire across the fitness/lifting community. After that she went on Reddit’s r/fitness to share her achievement with other likeminded individuals on the never ending pursuit of gains. Here’s what Gabrielle Tucker’s five day lifting routine looks like on a normal week:

Day 1: Deadlifts + legs
3 x 5 heavy sumo deadlifts (currently doing conventional to rehab my hip, will switch back to sumo in a few weeks)
2 x 3 paused sumo deadlifts at same weight
3 x 10-12 weighted hip thrust
normal and paused medium weight squats to practice movement if there is time

Day 2: REST

Day 3: Upper
Warm up to working weight with barbell bench press
3 x 5 slingshot bench using bands
3 x 5 close grip bench
3 x 5-10 weighted dips
5 x 5 Overhead press or Z-press
Either 3 x 5 weighted pull ups or dumbbell row

Day 4: Squats + legs
Mix of medium-heavy squats, varied rep ranges
3 x 2-5 paused beltless squats
3 x 10 barbell good mornings
3 x 10-15 dumbbell goblet squats or 3 x 10 weighted front lunges

Day 5: Upper (Same as Day 3)
Warm up to working weight with barbell bench press
3 x 5 slingshot bench using bands
3 x 5 close grip bench
3 x 5-10 weighted dips
5 x 5 Overhead press or Z-press
Either 3 x 5 weighted pull ups or dumbbell row

REPEAT

She also tries to take in 100 grams of protein every day, and says that she’s able to maintain her 125-pound weigh while doing this. And if you’re wondering what Gabrielle looks like when she’s not squatting 300-pounds here are some other photos from her Instagram feed:

If you’re looking to keep up with Gabrielle’s weightlifting career you can follow her on Instagram by clicking through on that video above (or click here), but you’ve got some time before the next milestone as her next competition is in August where she’ll be representing Team USA down in St. Croix.
