Jeremy Smith is the lightest person to lift over 700 pounds.

West Grove resident Jeremy Smith is a four-foot-five powerlifter who can squat five times his own weight, a feat that has earned him the “World’s Strongest Dwarf” moniker, writes Sunni Upal for The U.S. Sun.

Smith, who was born with dwarfism, has been lifting weights since his high school days. The versatile athlete also played soccer, baseball, wrestling, and football, but in the end, powerlifting turned out to be his true passion.

And while doctors were not happy about him putting the weight of a heavy bar on his back, he persisted and today he continues to push the boundaries of what is humanly possible. Now, weighing in at 132 pounds, he can squat 745 pounds. He said that he is also the lightest person ever who was able to squat over 700 pounds and bench 500 pounds.

His lifting exploits have earned Smith nearly 60,000 followers on his Instagram page, where his fans can look at some of his lifting videos.
