About Me

Mar 29, 2013

My name is Marvin Bishop and I reside in Cleveland, Ohio. I currently am a 35 year old bench press specialist. I attended West Liberty University where I was 1st team All Conference as a defensive lineman.  I mainly compete in USAPL, 100% Raw and WABDL. I have not competed in a full meet yet but I have done some push/pull competitions.

I started competing in powerlifting in 2010 where at my first meet I benched 485 raw. From there I was hooked. I’ve gotten Best Lifter in my second powerlifting meet ever. Needless to say I was hooked. I hold World and multiple Ohio State records. I am a 2 time WABDL Bench Press World Champion. My personal best was 556.5lbs raw bench press at a WABDL meet in Lansing, Michigan in July 2012. I take pride in being a drug-free lifter and passing my drug tests the three times I was tested.

I work as a Social Worker in the Sex Abuse Unit for my county (Cuyahoga County) and I love my job as it also funds my powerlifting needs. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions on training, powerlifting, and nutrition/supplements.

I am blessed and excited for this new chapter in my life and my new Iron Authority family. God Bless.
