Standing double-arm lift

Lift 11: Double bodyweight

167 lbs. with each arm
Total 334 lbs.

Having been carefully weighed before the programme at 167 lbs., Sri Chinmoy proceeded to lift the equivalent of this weight with each arm simultaneously, a total of 334 lbs.

This double-arm lift has become one of Sri Chinmoy's signature lifts. On November 27th, 1998 at his 13th weightlifting anniversary celebration, Sri Chinmoy lifted his then bodyweight of 145 lbs. with each arm, a total of 290 lbs. (see inset photo). At the time, this weight represented his personal record.
