The Raw Unity Powerlifting Championships is proud to announce its latest and largest sponsor to date. Juggernaut Training Systems http://www.jtsstrength.com/
has joined forces with Raw Unity and has pledged $5000 for prize money in order to draw the top raw powerlifters in North America and perhaps the world to RUM 7. Since the announcement of adding knee wraps and a monolift to day 2 of next year’s Raw Unity Powerlifting Championships the interest among top raw lifters has been unprecedented. The preliminary commitment of lifters that have pledged to come to RUM 7 reads like a “Who’s Who” of raw powerlifting.

"Saturday at the APA Ironfest in Defuniak Springs, Fl, I got the chance to lift with some of the top ranked lifters in the nation and in the world. Just a few of guys in this meet were Nate Davis, Greg Wise, Tee Cummins, Garrett Griffin, Jeremy Hoornstra, Richard Hawthorne, Bobby Keys, Matt Wise, Andy Bowen, Phil Maranto, Michael McDonald Jr., Charlie Lyons, and Jacques Williams. It was a very exciting day and a lot of support from every lifter to get the best out of each other. Without the help and support from all these guys I never would've been able to hit these numbers.
On Sunday, November 10th at the 100% Raw Central PA Open in Bigler, PA, 12 year old Naomi Kutin made history.
She was expecting to barely make weight for the 97 lb class, but came in surprisingly light at 94.5 lbs. Then the action began.
In the squats, Naomi got 231 lbs on her third attempt, breaking the Powerlifting Watch all-time record squat for the raw, unwrapped 97 lb class. What makes this most amazing is that she has now broken this same record at age 9 (205 lbs), age 10 (214.9 lbs), age 11 (225 lbs, then 226 lbs 2 weeks later), and now age 12. This lift was also a 100% Raw world record.
From Cara Westin- The 4th Annual SPF Women's Pro Am at Super Training Gym in Sacramento filled early and attracted top lifters from all over to compete for $1000s in cash and prizes. Major sponsors for this meet were Mark Bell, SPF President Jesse Rodgers, Sweatt Shop, Powerlifting Watch and At Large Nutrition.

Multi time IPF world champ and world record holder Jaroslaw Olech destroys another record!
He leaves a lot to wonder just how strong he is with this smoke show 810 at only a 163lbs!
