From his website "I will competing at the United States Powerlifting Federation National Championships June 28-29, in Warwick Rhode Island at the Airport Sheraton. I'll be entering the 275lb weight class and attempting a 600lb bench press and a 900lb deadlift.

I will will be doing the Europa Pro and Atlantic City after that, with the Olympi to follow.

I am currently doing a camp with my church in Hurst Texas the entire month of June. It's the Mercy Seat Military Academy for troubled kids ages 12 to 18."

Can't wait to see what he can do this weekend!

I really admire that he is involved with projects like the camp he is doing right now. :xyxthumbs:

Yep, hope he does well.

It might look funny when a guy that muscular (and tight) is on stage with those "fat" guys.

Oh, I really though so. :hhj:

Seriously, what I meant was that a guy with professional stage muscle mass has to stand out somehow.

If you want to see a strong power lifter look into Donnie Thompson. He is a co-owner of my gym. Posted a 900lb bench

sad to hear that he didn't make it, wish him the best of luck on his next show of bb or powerlifting :xyxthumbs:

Johnnie opened the bench press competition with a first attempt of 465 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

Yeah, I thought he would do better, especially in the deadlift. He got a world record in that federation though!

I really hope his hamstring isn't seriously injured! He looks huge right now, hope he nails it at the Olympia. Top6 potential imo!
