Jim Phraner hits 775lbs @ 249.6lbs Single Ply

Jim Phraner competed this weekend (4/25/15) at the RPS Spring Supremacy Meet in Rochester, NY. Lifting in the 275lb class, he weighed in at 249.6lbs

The opening attempt was an easy 725lbs. The second attempt was 775lbs. This would be a new RPS World Record.
"After getting the "press" command, the weight started to move nicely, but I got a little out of the groove and the weight came over my face... thankfully the 3 spotters caught it. I had one attempt left, and knew I could make the weight. My game plan was to slow it down, and grind it out. I was wearing a single ply Overkill, I knew I'd have support all the way up. It worked, grinding lift was successful. A good day for Team Overkill.
With that successful lift, Jim moves into the #6 All-time Spot on Powerlifting Watch rankings at 275lbs, and #2 Current.

Lifting Through Adversity Matt Jones

"I lift in the WABDL and this past year has been a rough one. I got bit by a brown recluse and a month later after my surgery I won my first world championship. On my 3rd lift at the world championship I hurt my back which resulted in back surgery... A couple months later followed by heart problems. I never gave up and I just competed again and won!"
