Oleksandr Soloviev, a Master of Sports from Bila Tserkva, is an amateur contender of various endurance tests. However, to get his adrenaline kick, he decided to combine two challenges. The first is to immerse himself in water holding his breath, and secondly to partake in a barbell bench press whilst submerged. The weight of 100 kg barbell at a depth of 4 meters weighed 82.3 kg. While underwater, Oleksandr performed 24 non-stop reps of barbell bench press exercise. Resultantly, his record attempt was being observed by an angst-ridden medical team.
