Who inspired you to get into Power lifting?
For me it was Derek Pondstone. I bought my first Muscle Men mag. an he was on the cover of the December issue of 2011. Ever since I read the article an used his work out, It has changed me personally an inspired me to train hard to push my limits to the wall. To make it in football or Power lifting, where ever I choose to go in the Future.

A friend from work. He introduced me to things like Westside. I did research I caught the powerlifting bug.

Konstantinovs for me. Saw him a couple of years back and just imagined me being as beastly as him. Not gonna happen as he is a one off but I'll be beastly in my own way :)

Steve, aka Bendthebar

I met steve on another forum, and he gave me awesome advice. He was the one that first suggested powerlifting to me. I had never even thought about, I just liked to train. At the time I was doing bodybuilding splits, BTB threw me into another direction.

For that, I thank you steve!!
