IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Johnnie Jackson competed in the 2008 United States Powerlifting Federation (USPF) National Powerlifting Championships in Warwick, Rhode Island on June 29, 2009. Johnnie entered the meet with goals of 900 lbs in the deadlift and 600 lbs in the bench press.

During the early morning weigh-in, there was a minor crisis as the Inzer-designed bench press shirt did not meet USPF regulations due to an open back. Johnnie was able to find an alternate shirt for the meet and the crisis was averted.

Johnnie opened the bench press competition with a first attempt of 468 lbs unaided by a bench shirt. His next two lifts were disqualified although he was clearly able to handle the heavy weight, including a 600 lb third attempt that was not allowed due to a slight dip in his right elbow toward the end of the lockout during which he strained his arm at the elbow.

Johnnie set a USPF World Record on his first attempt at deadlift with a pull of 345 kgs (760 lbs). His second deadlift attempt for 372.5 kg (821 lbs) was not allowed because he did not push his hips forward at the top of the lift. His third and final attempt at 345 kgs was abandoned in mid-lift by Johnnie after he pulled his left hamstring. The injuries were initially a major concern for Johnnie since he is scheduled to compete in the 2008 IFBB Europa Pro show in seven weeks; but after further assessment, the injuries were relatively minor. Johnnie will still compete at the Europa.
