It's so crazy watching him lift as much weight as he does. It puts me a little on edge, and at the same time makes me incredibly proud. He lifts raw, which means he uses no type of gear to assist him when he's lifting. Some people will strap their knees or wear these insanely tight clothes that make them really stiff to help them. But Chris just uses his own strength.
His best lift of the day for squats was 512 pounds. His best benchpress was 347 pounds. For his deadlift he lifted 540. That's 540 pounds just picked up off of the ground. Can YOU do that?! I'm lucky if I can lift 30 pounds off the ground!
Chris was first introduced to competitive powerlifting by an employee at the YMCA. While Chris was doing his regular workout one day, Mark asked him if he would be interested and has been training him ever since. He's a great coach and a supportive trainer. Chris has been very blessed to meet him.
