THSPA/THSWPA First Meet of the 2020!

Thu, 01/09/2020 - 23:00 -- admin
As the THSPA/THSWPA Powerlifting season begins, the first meet was held at Tarkington Middle School. The Tarkington Longhorn Girls Classic Directed by Ron Arnesen had 92 lifters and some very close battles! Mariah Sigler took top honors at 132 fighting off a credible lifter in Paris Williams! It was 635 to 620 with Paris having the class high deadlift at 300lbs in a field of 7. Kailyn Fisher had the highest total of the meet squatting 415, benching 255 and pulling 385 for 1,055 total in the 259+ class. Many more meets are coming!


Bill Gillespie tops 1000 lb. Bench at age 60!!

Thu, 01/02/2020 - 10:43 -- Bill Clary

1004.2 BENCH PRESS! I am humbled by God’s grace and blessings! After 46 years of training life time drug free today at the age of 60 I officially broke through the 1000 pound barrier! This is the most weight ever benched by a drug free lifter and the fifth best bench of all time by anyone, any age with any equipment. I’m also the heaviest person of all time to bench triple body weight. Thank you so much to my wife Anita for her support for all these years. Thank to my wonderful son Cameron and my beautiful daughter Rachel, you will never know the strength that you give me.



James Strickland 530 x 5 Bench on Wk 67 *Road to 700*

Watch James as he prepares for another assault on the 700 barrier in the near future. He has taken 702 in competition but it was not to be on that day. 700+ is still the goal and barring any major set backs, I can see him finally taking that 308 ATWR! Here he is with 530 for 5 reps...


Justin Caputo 628 squat!

Mon, 12/16/2019 - 21:57 -- admin
Coming into this meet Justin decided not to make weight due previous dehydration issues during his attempt to make 165. He opted to go 181 coming in at a "safe" 173. He made a pr squat of 628 with room to spare! He benched 242 to bridge himself to the dead lift pulling another pr with 600! After a year and half off the platform what way to return! Im sure he's eyeing the 165 ATWR squat once again!


Blake Lehew 1,743 @ 165!!!

Sun, 12/08/2019 - 19:13 -- admin
An incredible performance by Blake Lehew at the USPA Bend the Bar meet! Reports are he went 275.5 kg (607 lbs) in the squat missing 628. Benched 182.5 kg (402 lbs) and pulled an amazing 333 kg ( 734 lbs) in the deadlift for an ATWR 1,743.8 raw total to break the current record by 1 lb.He also attempted a 340 kg (749 lbs) in the dead in which he did fully lockout, however he just couldn't hold it long enough...1,800 barrier seems very possible!


Daniel Bell Hits 2,518 Pounds To Take The ATWR!

Sun, 11/24/2019 - 22:07 -- admin
Malanichev's total record has been the ultimate total in powerlifting for several years now. Big Dan Bell brought the ATWR back to the US and did so with authority! He blasted through a 1,063 squat, 573 bench press and finished his day with an 881 pull! Very similar numbers to what Malanichev did actually!
