Jim Wendler is currently the strength and conditioning for the London Red Raiders high school football team. He played football and graduated from the University of Arizona, where he earned three letters. Jim’s best lifts include a 1,000-pound squat, a 675-pound bench press, a 700-pound deadlift, and a 2,375-pound total in the 275-pound class. He is the author of several books, including 5/3/1: The Simplest and Most Effective Training for Raw Strength.

As a self-coached athlete, Vincent Dizenzo held an all-time world record in the bench press and was a top-10 ranked lifter for over a decade. He has benched more than 600 pounds raw in three different weight classes and has a 900 equipped bench to his credit. Now, Vincent is focused on becoming a more fit version of himself. With his undertaking of Operation Be Less Fat, Vincent has lost over 100 pounds. Through this journey, he continues to provide invaluable advice on training, nutrition, and conditioning.
