Despite his age of 73, Rudy Kadlub’s physical abilities remain impressive. Most people who live into their 70s do not devote their lives to sports, but Rudy finds powerlifting to be his source of youth. However, no one could have predicted how successful Rudy would get in his professional powerlifting career. Although he holds many World Records, it seems that more will follow. According to Rudy Kadlub, he recently broke the U100KG Masters (70-74) IPL World Record Squat With Wraps by lifting 455 pounds (206.4 kilograms).
The current official World Record is also held by Rudy Kadlub, as he squatted 451.9 pounds (205 kilograms) at the 2021 IPL Drug Tested World Championship.
A previous shoulder injury prevented Rudy Kadlub from doing squats for a while. It appears Rudy has recovered from this injury, as evidenced by his recent feat of strength.
“455–3lbs over my WR. First time under the @kabukistrength Squat Bar in this training block. Shoulder felt tight but I’m happy that I could get myself into position without assistance from my training partner.”
Rudy Kadlub will soon get the chance to make this record official, as he plans to make an appearance at the 2022 USPA Oregon State Championships. This competition is set to take place on December 3rd, in Newport, Oregon.
Rudy Kadlub started competing professionally back in 2006 and has steadily put in appearances over the years. By now, Rudy has taken part in 39 sanctioned competitions and only failed to win six of them. In addition, Rudy Kadlub found a new business career in powerlifting, as he is the CEO of “Kabuki Strength”, who are renowned for its array of barbells and other lifting equipment.

With less than two weeks remaining until his next competition, Rudy Kadlub is looking to put in a performance of his lifetime. In addition, since he is squatting over the World Record already, Rudy is expected to completely demolish it during the competition. He just needs to ease his way into the competition, which would allow him to perform at his maximum. This should not pose a problem to Rudy, since he has previously completed this process numerous times.
