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. If you find this useful, please purchase a copy of Ernie Frantz’ “Ten Commandments of...

Reflecting on 2014

Reflecting on 2014

Jan 13, 2015

2014 was a big transition year for me. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Psychology. I moved backed home to San Antonio, and started back training at the gym where I learned how to lift. I got a girlfriend who I’ve been serious with for about a year now, shout-out to Jalyn Holt. Powerlifting wise, I transitioned to the open...

My Favorite Assistance for Sumo

My Favorite Assistance for Sumo

Dec 16, 2014

In my sophomore year of high school I worked out with the sprinters during track season to get my speed up. I tried to stick with the guys who were running the 100 and the 200 because I had zero endurance, and I figured we wouldn’t be running any distances longer than that. Nobody told me that we would be running 300s, 400s, 600s, miles, and all other...

The sumo deadlift is a mysterious and elusive creature. Some find it so mysterious they refuse to learn the technique and deem it cheating, or say that it is an unnecessary technique. Some find it so elusive that they try it once, and refuse to give it the time and love that it needs. The sumo technique is definitely not for everyone, and for certain body types...

Starting Over

Starting Over

Dec 1, 2014

  Couple weeks ago I competed at my first IPF Open Worlds. I never thought I would get there this quick, but some Thursdays ago I found myself about to get under 771 lbs to start my open career. I had an ok meet, went 6/9, hit some pr’s, set a world record, but I didn’t leave Aurora, Colorado with a sense of accomplishment. I left feeling that...

May 10, 2014

And look at that….  I’m behind again….  I know, shocking……..  So lets try to get caught up (again) and maybe I can find a way to be a bit more brief and stay caught up…..  Maybe……. Week 7 Believe it or not, my first thought when I sprained my wrist wasn’t “oh god, what if I can’t lift?”  My...

I’m back!!!!! Sorry I haven’t written to y’all in awhile but I’m back fresh off of winning the IPF Junior World Championships, 793,479,793 at 205. Had a pretty good day and you can’t complain when you get the gold, but I came home with a huge glaring weak point that I had not acknowledged in my training. I missed one lift at my...
