Masters Powerlifter Andrea White (67kg) Smokes a 220kg (485 lb) Deadlift

If you live in Texas, then there’s a good chance you felt a minor earthquake from Masters powerlifter Andrea White’s latest deadlift PR. Currently, White is in prep for the USPA National Powerlifting, Bench Press, and Deadlift Championships, which are being held July 12-13th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

When it comes to coaching incredibly strong powerlifters, D.J. Holcomb knows what it takes to get the best out of his athletes. After all, he is married to and helps coach C.C. Holcomb who now holds both the raw and raw with wraps all-time highest Wilks total.

In Holcomb’s Instagram video’s description he writes about White saying, “148lb master lifter Andrea White pulling her projected 2nd attempt of 485lbs on her last deadlift session before the USPA National Championships in Las Vegas! This is a 10lb PR for Andrea. I’m pleased with this lift considering her CNS is fried and her hamstrings were loose from a lot of massage therapy over the weekend. She’s going over 500 in Vegas.. We’re going after the classic raw best lifter awards in the open and masters divisions. She has put in a tremendous amount of hard work, it’s about to pay off!”

In late April, White competed at the IPL/USPA Philadelphia Fit Expo, and she was able to put together the best meet of her life. To conclude a strong performance, White hit a 167kg (370 lb) squat, a 134kg (297 lb) bench press, and a 215kg (474 lb) deadlift.

Additionally, these numbers broke multiple state records and qualified White for Nationals (which is what she’ll be competing at in a few weeks. It’s going to be interesting to see if White is able to hit the 500-lb mark in competition. Check out the 215kg (474 lb) pull from the meet in April.

Will White be able to take a run at more state and potentially national records come meet time in two weeks? Time will tell!
