All nine attempts from Raw Unity 7.. lifted on Day 2 against two good lifters that wore knee wraps and still managed to come in 2nd Place on formula. Joe not only took second on formula to Richard Hawthorne but was also drug tested by his own request!
205/93 class junior lifter Tony Schwebach hits a raw 565 deadlift for five reps, raw. Tony will be competing at the NAPF Pro Raw Challenge presented by StartingStrength.com at the Arnold Sports Festival. In this video Tony is training at Brad Gillingham's legendary Jackal's Gym.
Anywhere else an 1879 total at 220 would win and take best lifter at most contests! Here Tee finished in 4th but what a future this man has!
Raw Unity 7-- February 9, 2014
Weighed in at 218.8. Went 7/9 and hit a meet total pr. Missed an 804 squat and 710 deadlift on third attempts.
Brett is 17 and a High School Senior. At first glance it is virtually impossible to realize the true strength this young man yields! At 148 lbs this 17 year old kid broke the veteran lifter Eric Talmant's RUM Meet record squat of 512 with 514 pounds! He did this with room to spare!! Reminds one of a young Ricky Dale Crain who was doing astonishing lifts as young man himself..
Here is footage of Orlando Barbell's Shelly Cannon (123) squatting 243, 265, and missing 303 on depth, benching 143, then missing 170 twice, then deadlifting 286, 314, and 330 for 4 PRs and 2nd place overall in the middleweights in only her second meet at the Raw Unity Meet 7 on 2/8/14. Shelly is ranked #7 tied (raw) on Powerliftingwatch (current) lifter rankings
Tom is one of only two lifters who have ever done every single RUM thus far. He had progressed facing the nation's and the worlds best 165 pound lifters. He always came in not worried about how others performed but how he performed. RUM VII was no different, and even though he had trouble in his training and sustaining injuries during his preparation; Tom came to put all he had on the table! After a slow opener with 479, he jumped to 512 and missed badly. He was totally distraught by this miss and was determined not to miss this lift again! He came to the platform with crazy written all over his face. This must have frightened the platform manager because Mr Houston slapped the New England accent out of Tom! But Tom as fired up as ever made the 512!!!

Was this a warm up?
705/491/711 for a 1907 Total.
Not going to go into detail but a nagging injury held back my squat substantially and my deadlift a little bit. I still managed to pull out the win in the middleweight class on Day 2. PR Total at 220, Top 15 all time raw total in the 220 weight class.
Less than three weeks from the USA Powerlifting
