On behalf of the R.A.W. United family, congratulations to Loma on another outstanding day of lifting! Not only did Loma crush it on the platform, she judged all day on Saturday, and helped out with all the girls from both the World Gym team and the kids from our gym on Sunday. Thanks Loma! Spero
Brett competed at the Raw United Invitational November 15th & 16th. He bested his previous best of 513 from RUM VII going 515 and remaining at the top of the current raw squat rankings! Brett also took best lifter at the meet!
Sam Cox coming in at 241 pounds blasted through an 804 squat, 418 bench and pulled a very easy 727 deadlift to give him a total of 1950 and a top 7 ranking!
Sam is trained by Josh Bryant, enough said!
At 132 lbs BW Ellen Stein hit a new PR of 190 lb RAW bench (meet PR) and 405 lb RAW DL at the Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate Insurrextion meet at Crossfit Strong Island. She just keeps chugging away making gains against the laws of time!
Trained by Josh Bryant, Richard Ficca nailed a 606 raw bench at SHW at his recent USPA event. Richard just used this as a "training day" with a close miss @ 622. His 606 will
rank him in the top 5 of the current raw rankings!

Josh Morris has now officially become the first to total 2300 raw! There have been a few to do this and more with wraps, but as of yet only Don Reinhoudt has been rumored to do more. Don's record is credited at 2298 which was undoubtedly done without wraps. However, he is rumored to have done as much as 2350, but I have yet to find written/photo proof. Until then the record will now stand at 2300 by Josh Morris! Josh went 850 squat 640 bench and pulled 810 for a 2300 record total! (pending official results and proper attire was worn i.e. no shorts were worn under singlet during the squat etc)
Caitlyn Trout went 132 at the SPF Record Breakers and came in at 129 pounds. She topped the charts in her new weight class with a 405 pound squat! She also benched 205 and then pulled a 410 pound deadlift to rank number 1 in that lift in the US as well! Her final total of 1,020 is currently the number one total with wraps!
