The hardest working man in powerlifting

Chuck Volgepohl is 43, been training like an animal and competing at the top for 20 plus years and seemingly NEVER gives up. I remember watching him on Louies first videos do insane things like 500 pound 'nose to the bench' seated good mornings and other insanities and thinking no way could he last. Well, its not the first time I've been wrong. He IS WSB. Watch how fast he comes up with 1080! Too bad speed training has no role in powerlifting ,lol.

He didn't get called for depth on that?

Freakin crazy crazy crazy. standing up that fast with over half a ton wow.

first, it's almost impossible to call depth from the front;second it IS the APF ( almost parallel federation) and Yes I competed in the APF for years. they do not have anywhere near the stringent depth requirements of the IPF.

Royce,

exactly.

Hey Rif do all federations have a raw division?
The 100% raw federation is cool but they all their meets are on the east coast.

Mark Reifkind said...

royce,

not all feds have raw division but you can always compete with no equipment in any meet.
