A famous American powerlifter has been called out for using ‘fake weights’ in his Instagram videos.
Gym bod Brad Castleberry regularly posts to his gym selfies and lifting vids to his 739k followers on Instagram and it doesn’t take a genious to see he is seriously ripped and can lift A LOT.
ALWAYS PUSH YOURSELF TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS!!! ?? I wanted to thank all of my beloved fans and supporters that have enabled me to break World Record after World Record. I smashed another #WorldRecord tonight for the 255lbs weight class for the Entire World. #BeHumble #Gratitude ?????? ⚡️www.CastleberryNutrition.com⚡️ #legendsrunsandiego #nike #sandiego #converse #boom #castleberrynutrition #lightweight
But Brad has come under fire recently after powerlifters have accused him of using fake weights for his lifts to make it appear as if he’s lifting more than he actually is.
The guy can seriously lift but he is being accused of adding fake plates in addition to real plates.
This isn’t the first time he’s been accused of adding fake weights either – this YouTube user has made a video about it.
