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 either the APF Single Ply Nationals or the Olympia single ply meet next.

275 felt so easy that I got a little over zealous with 315. At least my raw bench is finally climbing back to where it was before the weight loss. Thanks to Jeff for training with me today.
I’ve been avoiding taking Ibuprofen for months due to my digestive issues, but finally took it the last couple of days since my aches and pains seemed a little worse than usual. Holy poop does it work! I took the standard issue 800 mg courtesy of Dr. Jeff and am amazed at the difference it made. I miss it. It didn't seem to have a negative affect on my digestion so I’ll definitely be incorporating it more again.
