Andrew Hause (140KG) Sets All-Time World Record Raw With Wraps Total at the 2022 WRPF American Pro

Hause joins the other elite powerlifters who broke records at the 2022 WRPF American Pro.

Fans in attendance at the 2022 WRPF American Pro meet in Manassas, VA, watched a lot of powerlifting history in the making. Tamara Walcott (+90KG), Chad Penson (100KG), and Danny Grigsby (125KG) weren’t the only ones setting world records. Andrew Hause got in on the act as well.

Hause, a 140-kilogram competitor, officially weighed in at 130.6 kilograms and set the all-time world record total in the raw with wraps category. He lifted a 1,117.5-kilogram (2,463-pound) after all three lifts. The summary of the 24-year-old’s day is below:

Hause went six for nine in attempts on the day. He started by going two for three on the squat. His first attempt of 432.5 kilograms (953.5 pounds) was good, but he was red-lighted for depth on his second attempt of 460 kilograms. He cleaned that up by successfully lifting the same weight for his last attempt. Hause wore a singlet, lifting belt, and knee wraps for his attempts.

Hause’s top squat was the third heaviest all-time in the raw squat with wraps category. According to Open Powerlifting, the current record holder is James Searcy, who lifted 480 kilograms (1,058.2 pounds) at the 2018 RPS Live Large Big Spring Showdown meet in Canton, OH.

Next up was the bench press. Hause opened on a good lift of 232.5 kilograms (512.6 pounds). The judges also approved his second attempt of 247.5 kilograms (545.6 pounds). He went up to 255 kilograms (562.2 pounds) for his final attempt, but he missed it.

Hause concluded his meet by going two for three in the deadlift. His first two attempts of 375 kilograms (826.7 pounds) and 410 kilograms (903.9 pounds) were both called good. He attempted to finish with a 420-kilogram (925.9-pound) pull but couldn’t make it.

Hause’s new world record breaks the previous mark set by Eric Lilliebridge, who totaled 1,114.7 kilograms (2,457.5 pounds) at the 2016 UPA Iron Battle on the Mississippi. It’s impressive on its own, but Hause revealed in a recent Instagram post that he tested positive for COVID-19 during his prep for the meet. Hause also shared that he’s returning to the drawing board and did not state when he would return to the competitive lifting platform.
