The Mighty Gene Rychlak Moves On....

Fri, 07/26/2019 - 22:44 -- admin
The first time I heard of Gene was during the Bench America contests. I had never seen or heard of him 'till then, but he stood out with his shades and mohawk, looked like a jacked biker! He eventually became the first to bench a grand and also the first to lift a grand in both the squat and bench.. He made his mark on the powerlifitng world and did it with out question, his lifts were that solid! He started the RPS and held it to a high standard and to that we say thank you and he will be missed by us all.

Sat, 07/06/2019 - 20:33 -- admin
Ashton weighed in over the 205 limit at 208 and posted notice to all 105kg/231lb lifters! He managed a 705 lb squat and 457 bench to set up his pet lift- the deadlift! He pulled a massive 821 to unofficially break the IPF world record total of 1,974 with a 1,984 total! Will he stay in the 105 class or go back to 205 and smash that record? Either way he's a major threat to the world records in each class and looks good to surpass 2 grand!
