Andrew Hause is gearing up to return to the powerlifting platform. On July 16, 2023, he posted an Instagram reel of himself wherein he squatted 362.8 kilograms (800 pounds) raw for six reps. Hause wore a lifting belt, wrist wraps, and knee sleeves while training at Blackheart CrossFit and Powerlifting in Jacksonville, NC.
After a few moments of preparation, Hause maneuvered under the barbell. When the monolift moved, Hause paused momentarily before beginning his set. The first four reps look identical in execution and speed. He waited for the bar to stop moving at the top of each rep before beginning the next. His fifth rep was slightly slower but never appeared in doubt. He ground through his sixth rep before the monolift neared him to rack the weight. He had three spotters.
The 24-year-old Hause set the all-time Junior world record in the total in 2021. In 2022, he accomplished several feats of strength, including a 467.8-kilogram (1,031.4-pound) squat and a 456.3-kilogram (1,006-pound) squat. That year culminated with him breaking the all-time raw with wraps world record at the 2022 WRPF American Pro, his first official Open meet, according to Open Powerlifting. His new record eclipsed the previous one held by Eric Lilliebridge by 2.5 kilograms. The summary of that day is below:
2022 WRPF American Pro Results — Andrew Hause, 140KG
As of the time of this article’s publication, Hause hadn’t formally announced when his next sanctioned contest appeared will be. The 2023 WRPF American Pro is set to take place on Oct. 27-29, 2023, in Manassas, VA. It would be interesting to see Hause compete at the same event he broke the total record in to possibly break it again. Given the strength of his recent training, that possibility is on the table should his name appear on the roster.
