My Bio

Mar 17, 2013

My name is Tom Murray, I am 24 years old and live in Pittsburgh. I am a bench press specialist that competes mainly in the USAPL. the reason I am a bench specialist is because I useed to play football in high school and for a short time in college and it really took a tole on my body from torn knee legamints to a serious neck injury so I decided to give up football and go back to my first love and that is lifting heavy weights.

I started competing powerlifting at the age of 14 and by the age of 15 i broke my first record I benched 419lbs RAW at a NASA meet in Springfield Ohio. I was hooked after that.

My best lifts in a meet are 545lbs RAW bench press at 24 years old in the USAPL at the Ohio State Championships. Due to nagging shoulder injury I decided to put RAW on the back burner for the time being and compete in sigle ply.

When I am not lifting or working I am a youth leader at my church and also help feed and cloth the homeless of Pittsburgh. I also love my family to death, we are very close and I spend alot of time with them.

Thanks for reading my bio, stay tuned for much more from me. God Bless!!!
