10/26- Single Ply Deadlift w/videos, 5 Weeks out from the APF Gulf Coast Winter Bash

I have been competitively powerlifting for over 20 years. Within that time I have competed raw, single ply and multi ply. I hold the highest all time total of 1930 at 148, the third highest total of 2045 at 165 and have broken over 35 world records, over 25 of which I still hold. Through the years in this sport I have learned a great deal from various training methods, met and formed long lasting friends, as well as learned the importance of balancing life, work, and training.

Elitefts accepted me as a team member over ten years ago and I am currently the longest standing still competing powerlifter on the site. I appreciate Dave Tate and Elitefts for giving me the opportunity to learn from and teach others through the Q&A and my training log.

In 2005 I opened Orlando Barbell – a 24 hour powerlifting friendly gym. As well as running Orlando Barbell I designed and sell the Home GHR and Doorway Home Gym, wrote the 12 Weeks to a Bigger Bench EBook, and produced the 12Weeks to a Bigger Bench DVD.

My latest contribution was writing the M2 Method EBook, designed to be the quintessential Raw Powerlifting training manual for beginners to advanced lifters looking to get stronger and prevent injury while incorporating the powerlifts.

I'm currently in off season training and plan to compete in the single ply division in the APF Gulf Coast Winter Bash on December 5th.

Mid Grip Cable Pulldowns-
Tyler Weaver likes to give people advice or “coach” them so Stephen made a bet that if he could do 10 reps with the stack on pulldowns (230 lbs) then he was allowed to keep giving people advice. He got 5, then Stephen did 8 so I did
230x10, yeah they were half reps and I was swinging the hell out of them but it was fun.

Since I received an email asking if I was still in the business of selling Home GHRs I thought I should probably start promoting them more. If you own a home gym and don't have access to a glute ham raise then the affordable and effective Home GHR is for you. Order yours today here: The Affordable and Effective Floor Based Home GHR

Today was a good day.  We're motivating each other well, I have my UC in check and things are coming together for this meet.  It's good to finally be getting Stong(er) again.
