Knights of Iron


Synopsis: Knights of Iron is a documentary film that profiles Woodward Academy, an Iowa juvenile residential facility that houses approximately 240 delinquent students. The film chronicles the 2011 powerlifting season as the lifters prepare for the USAPL High School Powerlifting National Championships, held in Corpus Christi, TX.

I started watching Mike Mentzer's HIT video on demand last night for fun and giggles.

Knights of Iron - $4.99 on Amazon
Iowa Juvenile Rehab High School Program for delinquent teens. Giving them direction, an outlet, sense of accomplishment and a sense of accountability.

What you'd expect... All the good things that weightlifting brings to young men. High performing PL team.

Some narration, but mostly commentary from the kids and coaches.

First third is about the PL shows some other activities then returns to the PL team heading to a comp in TX. It slows down while they explore Corpus Christi. Last quarter is competition. Team and individual scoring. USAPL.

The competitors (weighing 114-181) have raw totals of 900 min to compete.

Overall, a little slow-moving, but encouraging to see.
