Brian Schwab’s longevity in the sport of powerlifting (he is the longest standing still-competing member of elitefts™ and 20-year veteran of the sport) should be enough to catch any aspiring lifter’s attention. He has managed to be nationally ranked in the 148 and 165-pound weight classes for more years than most lifters even stay in the sport. Schwab spent eight consecutive years as the number one ranked 148-pound lifter in the world, by Powerlifting USA’s records. He holds the highest all-time total in the 148-pound weight class and is an Arnold Classic WPO Champion in the lightweight division.
