TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) A Filer native is breaking national and world weight lifting records thanks to his Twin Falls native coach.
Imagine being able to pick up a dairy cow that weighs approximately 1,400 pounds.
Kaden Fisher is a Filer native who can lift that when you combine his national and world records for the squat, bench press and dead-lift combined.
"Everyone’s always told me, you know you're strong for your body weight and things like that. And when I started getting professional programming and training from Derek my numbers sky rocketed. So I figured I’d give it a try, and we did so and things have gone well so far,” Fisher said.
At the 2017 AWPC/WPC World Weight Lifting Cup in Idaho Falls, Kaden Fisher broke four World record and six American records in his age and weight group.
The 22 year old got into weight lifting to become a better athlete in high school. Once he realized his lifting potential he reached out to his coach and trainer Derek Molesworth.
"I’ve been a power lifting and strength and conditioning coach for over 25 years. I've coached over five world record holders, 25 American record holders. Now Kaden is my sixth world record holder and 26th national record holder,” Molesworth said.
Being able to compete at a high caliber comes with a commitment to a healthy lifestyle 24/7.
"For the three mains lifts it's definitely my strength. I have almost a three and a half times body weight deadlift. Pulling 591 at a body weight of 179," Fisher said.
Kaden's not putting a cap on his weight lifting potential. His personal goals include getting his combined total to his 1,475 to 1,500 pounds, as well as being personally invited to attend a larger sanctioned event.
