Powerlifter Tiffany Chapon is going big in the gym again. The French powerlifter who competes in the 47-kilogram weight class took to her Instagram page on April 4, 2022, to share a raw gym total of 425 kilograms (937 pounds) — seven kilograms more than the current all-time IPF total world record at 47-kilograms, according to Open Powerlifting. Part of that total includes what would be an all-time world record raw squat had it been performed in competition. Here are the stats she scored in training:
Tiffany Chapon | April 4, 2022, Raw Training Stats
- Squat — 165 kilograms (363.8 pounds)
- Bench Press — 95 kilograms (209.4 pounds)
- Deadlift — 165 kilograms (363.8 pounds)
- Total — 425 kilograms (937 pounds)
Chapon did not list her body weight at the time of her training session, but her squat is over 3.4 times her competition body weight. Check out all three lifts in the videos below. Chapon wears wrist wraps, knee sleeves, and a lifting belt for the squat.

In the 47-kilogram class, Chapon holds the all-time squat world record squat of 155 kilograms (341.7 pounds) from her performance at the 2022 FFForce Championnats de France Élite de Force Athlétique. Her 418-kilogram (921.5-pound) total from that event is also the current all-time world record.
The above training session isn’t the first time Chapon has exceeded her raw squat world record in training. She lifted seven kilograms over her then all-time world record raw squat of 153 kilograms (337.3 pounds) from her gold medal performance at the 2021 EPF European Classic Powerlifting Championships in training in February 2022. She set the current raw all-time squat world record less than one month later.
While the squat is historically her strongest lift, Chapon is closing in on the all-time raw bench press world record of 95.5 kilograms (210.5 pounds) by Hanna Rantala from the 2017 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships. Chapon’s recent training session included a bench press only half a kilogram shy of that record. Given that her competition-best bench press is 93 kilograms (205 pounds), it’s possible Chapon’s next appearance in a sanctioned meet could result in the toppling of multiple all-time world records.
