JULY 23, 2015
Karen Campbell hit a World Record Bench Press of 501.5 at the WABDL World Cup in April of this year. At that time many of us who saw it with our own eyes (I actually was a side judge) could hardly believe our eyes.

Well she did it again! Here is video of Karen killing a 512.5 lbs bench press in single ply gear. Karen competed in the 198 Lb. class weighing in at 196.2!

Top Texas Lifters!

Several great lifters from the state of Texas competed in various competitions, all trained by Joshstrength! Many of these lifters were top lifters before and have now moved to the next level with Josh's training programs!

Here are some of their accomplishments!:


Loma Amore weighing 147 lifting at The Raw United Senior Championships at the Civic Center in Port St Lucie Fla exceeded her own marks in the bench and deadlift. She benched 215 and deadlifted 385. I believe her bench was the most ever down Raw by a female age 60 or over. Loma trains at and represents World Gym in Port St Lucie. Next competetion will be Raw Unity in January!
