Javier Escobar just got accepted to be a Tough Mudder Ambassador.
This is a pretty big deal in the TM community.
Javier trains his ass off, is diligent about his nutrition and spreads the word of fitness all over.
Exaclty what we love in a TPS member.
See, not everyone is a powerlifter here!
Watch this awesome video that helped him get in.
USAPL Worcester Open
So I showed up at the USAPL Worcester Open last expecting to handle Alyssa Frey, Kevin Cann and Nick “Big Quiet” Santangelo.
Holy nips was I surprised when I saw about almost a dozen lifters from TPS.
9/9 with 27 white lights. That is a first. 180kg/135kg/235kg for 550kg total. This was a 23lb squat meet PR (hit 184kg in my test), 13lb bench meet PR, and 18 lb deadlift meet PR (3lb all time PR). Thanks to my coaching staff @borissheiko @tpsmalden @jabbermicwalky @russstache @candace_woj for helping me out. And thanks to my support staff @aimlee311 @mjap1961 @jessicacann @sabiebaby1 @terdle @thechroniclesofdcb @spinachteeth @butchiecurtis and the other TPS lifters @nick_santangelo125 @dicostaz @alyssa72kg for setting the bar high. Time to get back to training #tpsmalden #bostonsstrongest #elitefts #strength #sheiko #sheikoprogram #squat #benchpress #deadlift #powerlifting #usapowerlifting
I had no idea.
Liz Wahlman lifted and a bunch of others did too.
However, I am dumb and it was a long day so I don’t have info on them.
Alyssa, Kevin and Nick CRUSHED it.
Final pull at 556lbs from the meet on Sunday. This was an 11lbs meet pr. # I definitely had some left in the tank. # Considering how terrible deadlifts went during my prep, I'm happy with this pull and can't wait for strongman Saturday @tpsmalden so I can improve my deadlift technique. #powerlifting#deadlift#deadlifts #strong#strength#stronger #gains#pr#competition #usapl#powerlifter#fitness
Alyssa set a PR on every lift and went 9 for 9.
Kevin did too.
Kevin told me that every class that had a TPS lifter in it took a 1st place win.
TO EVERYONE: In the future, if you are doing a meet, or did one, please let me now.
We’d love to share your success with our readers.
