If my lifting in 2017 was a song it would be called “Rollercoaster”. Many ups and downs on the platform while making the choice not to freaking scream and give up but to enjoy the ride by staying mentally stronger than ever. Being a Master M-3 220 pound lifter this was my year of fighting through injuries. I started the year healthy but bombed on a 418 Single Ply bench at a UAPL meet in January, but finished the year strong and healthy with a 440 Single Ply bench at a USPF meet in November.
October 21, 1942 ~ May 14, 2017 (age 74) Hatfield Quotes: "Dr Fred Hatfield was the first strength guru to talk about many subjects that others take credit for today. Practiced everything he preached. Fearless in his pursuit of knowledge and peace of mind heart and soul!!" - Ed Coan "Fred Hatfield was a good friend of mine. Over the last couple of years I enjoyed our friendly jabbing back and forth with him. I often got on his case for throwing words out there that only a few ppl understood. Good bye old buddy. See you at the chalk box somewhere down the road." -Larry Pacifico
