The legend Cailer Woolam has crushed yet another record deadlift and asserted his dominance as a World-class lifter in the 100kg/220lb class. He opened the Kern US Open going 3/3 on squats with a 661lbs/300kg best. Then he took to the deadlifts where he opened with 887lbs, 402.5kg, hit 931lbs, 422.5kg on his second attempt, and lifted an all-time record 950lbs, 431kg.
He then finished with the bench press going 2 for 3 after missing his second attempt but he hit 474lbs/215kg which is still a great performance.
He posted all three deadlift attempts on his Instagram so you can view them below:
Cailer explained that he just wanted to achieve a big PR total but that wasn’t entirely the case…
“Breaking my deadlift record wasn’t the biggest priority for this meet, a big PR total was. But it just happened to be there that day. Only 1kg PR here, but this time it was on standard plates compared to the larger ones in Russia. So I was very pleased with this because of that. My knees were shot and I was kinda smoked after squats. But somehow deads just felt great at the meet. Best they have ever felt! 5th meet in a row to break a world record!”
Now, he did pretty good on the squat, although he explains he had a minor mishap. But he was still extremely pleased with his squat performance.
“661lbs/300kg. 3 for 3 on squats. This is a 22lb meet PR. I messed this one up making it pretty hard out of the hole. But this is the number I wanted and I got it. Im pumped!”
Cailer then went 2 for 3 on the bench hitting a number he was happy with and it was an 11-pound meet PR.
“474lbs/215kg. Went 2 for 3 on bench. Missed this weight on my 2nd but got it on the 3rd. Happy with this number. 11lb meet PR!”
Here’s a recap of his performances…
Overall, Cailer Woolam finished with a 945kg/2,085 lb total, and he was thrilled that it was an 85-pound meet PR. And although he wasn’t looking to shatter any records as he explained in an Instagram post, it was just a side effect of being a pure beast!
