IRON AUTHORITY JULY 2012 ATHLETE
Mike Kuhns became interested in weight training, which lead to Powerlifting because of his Father. When Mike was growing up, his father and his friends would work out nearly every day in the mornings before they left for work. He would see this everyday before he left for school so it just became common to Mike that men lift weights. Because of his stature (and being very overweight) he did not excel at common childhood games and sports. When Mike was 10 or 11, he came home one day after school very upset. When his Father inquired Mike explained how he was always the last one picked for any sports; if he was picked at all and that he could not compete with my classmates athletically on any level. Mike’s father responded by saying “Well you’re just not built for that.” A very agitated and aggravated Mike replied, “Well what am I built for?” Mike’s dad took one glance at him and immediately said “Power.” The next day Mike went into the family basement gym and well, the rest is history. Little did Mike know that he’d become one of the greatest powerlifters in the world!
