A Pilot Point High School weightlifter teammates call "The Beast" broke his own bench press record.
Matt Poursoltani, 18, loaded up the weight bar with 700 pounds at the State Final in Abilene on Saturday.
The record was a huge accomplishment for the 5'10 Pilot Point senior.
His coaches have been helping him work towards this goal all year long.
"Everything came through my mind like I need to press it up my technique my arch my feet can't move I need explosion," said high school record holder Matt Porsoltani
After it was over, Matt thought it was a little too easy, that maybe he should have added more weight.
Next, he says he'll go for a 1,200 pound bench, which is well over the world record.
