Ernie Frantz 2014 Deadlift Clinic Full Video

Aug 21, 2016

Back in 2014 Ernie Frantz performed a deadlift clinic which we recorded.  It was a lot of fun and everyone attending hit a PR.  We have used this as an internal training video, but feel it is important to make it available as a part of Powerlifting history.

Relentless Minnesota 2016 Part 2 My Personal Experience

Jul 15, 2016

As with everyone else, life has hit my training time. I had to back out of a couple of meets due to business conflicts.
