August 1st 2015 Eric competed with big numbers in mind and came away with a 1,030 new WR squat at 306 pounds! He mastered a 529 bench and pulled an 848 deadlift to total 2,408 pounds near his record total, even though he wasnt happy with those two last lifts! Great total never the less and we may very well see a 2500+ total from Eric very soon when he has a "good" day!!!!

Azerbaijan's Elshan Huseynov and Nigeria's Bose Omolayo headlined the 2015 IPC Powerlifting Asian Open Championships on Wednesday (29 July), breaking world records to beat reigning world champions to gold in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Huseynov was in great form in the men's up to 107kg, stylishly clearing three lifts to win his country's first medal of the competition. His 242kg new world mark adds 2kg to the previous world record of Greek world champion Pavlos Mamalos.
Recently, there has been an uproar on the judging standards in some federations. To federation's credit however, they have now been turning the tides and enforcing the rules and even retracting lifts. Only they have that power to do that. Here is an article written a few weeks back by newly appointed USPA judge Jason Manenkoff that sparked some interest by the lifting community and was featured on Powerlifter Today.
