Default Interview with Jonathyn Byrd

I was a 250lb, 14 year old fat kid who couldn’t bench 150 lbs when I started. By the time of graduation I did a handful of push-pull meets and benched over 400 lbs. This was at the age of 17. Coach Blick and I later became training partners and he introduced me to the group of powerlifters I still lift with today. It was there that I learned what it took to be successful.

Even in college my coaches would let me come home on Fridays to squat with them because of the gains I was making. I think it was there, in a garage with no heat or air that I really started to focus on strength gains. When I suffered the major knee injury, they were there to help me rehab it.
