Czajkowski sets U.S. lift record
The previous American bench record of 440 pounds was set by Nicholas Israel set in 2008.
Czajkowski set the new mark, competing in San Antonio at the 2013 USAPL Texas State Championships.
He placed first in the Teen III (18-19) division, squatting 617 pounds, deadlifting 534 pounds for a total of 1,598 pounds (including the bench press).
Czajkowski qualified for the Teen National Meet in Killeen in July.
