9/21- Deadifts w/video

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 , the The OBB Power Handles and the 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.

Many of the team are deloading this week (or should be) while prepping for the RPS South Florida Redemption Meet next weekend. Now that the meds from the clinical trial seem to be helping I’d really like to find a single ply meet in December or January to compete in but haven’t found anything within driving distance yet.

Fat Grip Double Overhand Deadlifts for grip work-
135x3
225x3
245x3
275xnone
I sucked at these. Definitely my worst grip exercise yet. I’m now realizing that my grip is by far my weakest link so I will keep working on it. I’d like to enter another arm wrestling competition at some point so it will definitely help with that as well.

Close Grip Cable Rows-
150x8
180x8
195x8
