If Nichols is bench pressing over 500 pounds now, he could become an unstoppable force soon enough.
In their free time, most 16-year-olds probably aren’t working on building their strength in the gym. Rather than polish up their staple lifts, they’re likely playing video games, hanging out with friends, or just chilling out on the couch. Knowing this, it’s clear that powerlifter Morgan Nicholls is no average teenager.
On Nov. 28, 2022, Nicholls shared an Instagram clip of himself successfully locking out a 233.6-kilogram (515-pound) bench press with wraps. According to the caption of his post, the pressing feat is a personal record (PR) for the young athlete. Considering Nicholls’ age, it might be even more impressive how easily the lift appears to come to him the moment he lowers his stacked barbell onto his chest.
