Naomi Kutin
I caught this girl on TV about a month ago. I finally got around to Googleing her. Amazing.

Raw Unity. Chorpus Christi, TX. January 22, 2012

She has a deadlift video (214.9 lbs) Look at how amped she gets at that bar. Somewhere there is a 10 year old little girl warming up with my max...

I've been training my 13 year old daughter and she has only now after 6 months progressed to a 65 pound squat. Naomi is simply amazing.

I will be competing at Raw Unity this year and hope she will be there.

I think it is great that parents show their children how to lift. I wish I had someone showing me these things when I was young. Children are never too young to be shown health and fitness.

I wonder if Naomi had some professional coaching all the way into adulthood how much could she lift?

Her father posted here last year:


I've been lifting for over 30 years, and as her father, her health and safety come first to me, so I am her "real" coach.

Yes you are right that kids often bring their knees together. We (my wife and I) taught her to overcome that tendency. Doing that is a bad thing, not a good thing.

In criticizing her form, keep 2 things in mind. First, she is doing powerlifting style squats (obviously) which have the bar lower on the back, and thereby bending somewhat forward, than would be true with more conventional types of squats. Actually, by powerlifting standards, her form is decent. Second, form does tend to degrade at higher weights. The third one broke a world record, for the weight class, not just for her age. Certainly, by any reasonable standards, that qualifies as a high weight.

She is a monster! Would love to meet her and shake her hand!
