OK so the above is from the APF website and is as it says the APF Deadlift only records for Men’s Open.

From what I can see the 90kilo weight class has a record of 207.5kilos set by Scott Blevins in 2006 from Houston.

Now this seems way too low to me. This federation allows whatever you want to wear for the deadlift only event and the record is ~457?

Anyone know if this is still true or is this out dated?

I have no idea where you got that list from, but im pretty sure Ed Coan still owns the APF deadlift record in 90kg class as well as in at least two other weight classes. Its possible that is just a list for a deadlift only meet and not a three lift meet.

I got it from:

worldpowerliftingcongress.com/APF%20Deadlift.htm

You are correct Ed Coan has it at 390 kilos in a full powerlifting meet.

The records are so low because it’s a “deadlift only” record. As you said, the full meet ones are substantially higher!
