There's a thread over at Monster Muscle asking for opinions on the state with the most powerlifters or best powerlifting scene. Lots of state getting votes. A few states are being nominated for having poor support for powerlifting. Sorry Arkansas, and New Jersey!
The WPO has posted the Bench Bash for Cash results. Ryan Kennelly was the only Super Heavyweight not to bomb out. He posted an 854 bench. Kara Bohigian won the Women's division with a 325 bench. Fred Boldt conquered the Lightweight division with a 624 lift. The Heavyweights was won by Robert Luyando with a 728 bench.
Mike Miller has issued a challenge to some of the worlds strongest powerlifters over at the APF Outlaws forum. The event is the Atlantic Foundation Strongman Challenge in February. The strongman contest will be raw.
Miller issues the challenge to elite athletes Gary Frank, Brian Siders, Beau Moore, Andy Bolton, Donnie Thompson, Paul Childress, Matt Smith, Brad Gillingham, Josh Bryant, Jeff Lewis, Chris Taylor and Tom Fannon.
A lot of people have said that â€œI cheat with gearâ€, so now I am challenging all of you to take off your gear and face me. We will see who is really the strongest Powerlifter once and for all.
