Cailer Woolam Just Broke His Own World Record By Deadlifting 948lbs/430kg

Cailer Woolam Broke The Record By Deadlifting Insane Amount Of 948lbs

This past weekend a powerlifter Cailer Woolam aka doctor deadlift competed against some of worlds strongest athletes in the 100kg/200Ilb weight class at World Raw Powerlifting Federation (WRPF) World Championships.

Woolam, 24, weighed 98kg on the day of competition, just shattered his all-time world record by hitting an insane 948lbs/430kg deadlift.

He pulls overall weight of a 907kg/2,001 lb total. He finished the squats with a 272.5kg/601 lbs lift and hit 205kg/452 lbs for the bench press on his second attempt and nearly missed a 210kg/463 lbs third attempt at the lockout.

Woolam posted a video of deadlift on his Instagram page, which says he breaks his 100kg all-time world record:

948lbs/430kg to break the 100kg all time world record ..again lol. 2nd attempt deadlift. Heaviest deadlift in competition by any American ever Reguardless of gear or weigh class. And it secured me a 2001lb total in sleeves @ 98kgbw. Happy I was able to make it happen on the other side of the world in a different time zone. 4th meet in a row to break an all time world record. I am beyond pleased to walk away with a PR total after all of my Injuries and setbacks this year. And with little to no squat training leading up to the meet. The challenge of traveling across the world and competing was very hard, but I did my best to show up and do what I could do. Easier off the ground with the big plates. But very very hard to control the bar whip at the top for those wondering. Amazing meet here in Moscow! #wrpfworldchampionship

Here is my missed 3rd and 4th attempt at 440kg/970lb. I tore the crap out of my thumb on my 948 pull and had to get it bandaged up to stop the bleeding. As I was going for my 3rd the judge stopped me and said I had too many layers of bandages on. Killed some momentum but not too much. I lost control and dropped the weight. The 4th attempt I was slowing down at the top to try and carefully lock my legs out. I got an early down command that cost me the lift. I did feel I got a little screwed there as I was not yet done lifting the bar. The weight felt not that hard for the most part. But hey, what can you do? The big plates made the lockout hard but also made it easier off the ground. I will get some back lash about the plates. But instead of complaining about the plates, you are welcome to come to Russia and use them as well just like I did haha. I will admit it was easier.
