Last Records Update 3/27/2017

The USAPL National Office has implemented new records policies.

The State Chair now maintains state records, except the special divisions (Law Enforcement/Fire, Military, Disabled, and Special Olympics). Records are updated automatically after meet directors submit the results to the National Office. If corrections need to be made, please contact the meet director listed on the meet entry.

Also note, Masters records that beat a younger Masters or Open record and Youth/Teen/Junior records that beat an older or Open division will also be recorded in those other age divisions. The records have been updated within the USAPL Records Database.

To report or correct a special division record, please send an email to wausaplchair@gmail.com and include the lifter’s name, state of residency at the time of the meet, date and location of the meet, either a link to the results (or include the lifter’s full results of the meet – bodyweight, weight class, age division, special division entered, best squat result (if attempted), best bench result (if attempted), best deadlift result (if attempted) and total. See below for an explanation of the special division criteria and records.

About State Records

The Washington State USAPL maintains state records as allowed by the USAPL Technical Rules (note that there have been several changes to lifter divisions effective 1/1/2015). State records may be set by a registered USAPL member at any sanctioned USAPL, NAPF, or IPF meet and judged by certified State, National, or International referees.

The state record keeper is the State Chair. Updates, questions, or comments should be directed to usaplwa@gmail.com.

Age Divisions

A lifter may set a state record for the appropriate age category and the open age category, regardless of which division the lifter is registered in at the meet. For example, a 42 year old lifter registered as an M1a may also set records for the Open age category.

  • Open (A lifter of any age)
  • Y1 (From the day the lifter reaches 8 years to the day before he reaches 10 years)

Powerlifting vs. Single Lift Records

Powerlifting records (Squat, Bench, Deadlift, Total) may only be set when a powerlifting total is achieved (at least one successful lift of each type). The State also maintains Single Lift Bench and Single Lift Deadlift records, in which a powerlifting total is not required. A lifter may set a Single Lift Bench or Deadlift record regardless of how the lifter is registered at a meet. For example, a lifter registered as “Full Powerlifting” only may also set Single Lift records.

Special Divisions

The Washington State USAPL also maintains records for Special Divisions as follows

  • Military (Equipped and Raw, Open, Junior, M1a, M1b, M2a, M2b, and M3a age divisions)
  • Law Enforcement and Fire (Equipped and Raw, Open, Junior, M1a, M1b, M2a, M2b, and M3a age divisions)
  • Disabled (Blind only, All age and weight divisions) – this division was added in 2008
  • Special Olympics, Must be registered with Special Olympics (All age and weight divisions)

Raw Records

A lifter may set a Raw state record under the same guidelines as above when the meet director offers a Raw division. If a lifter sets a Raw state record which also exceeds the Equipped state record, the record will apply to both categories.

Washington State began recording Raw records in August 2006. Knee wraps were previously allowed in Raw lifting. Raw Squat and Total records set while using knee wraps have been noted, and a lift meeting current standards for Raw lifting will overwrite a Raw record noted with wraps, regardless of the weight lifted.
