I am a Custom residential home contractor. I am an 18 time National Powerlifting Champion and 14 time International World Champion. I have won World Titles in five weight classes. I established over 100 official World Records during a 35 year span, some still stand. I was inducted into three sports Hall of Fames and was nominated for the Sullivan Award. I did color commentary for CBS sports. I also wrestled and ran competitive races. A favorite competition at my box was handstand pushups to max. reps. in 30 minutes. Everyone was astonished when I cranked out 330 reps., with no kipping. My favorite benchpress was an exhibition witnessed by Franco Columbo, a Mr. Olympia, during an event in New Jersey. I benched 525 lbs. for 5 consecutive reps. in a t-shirt (no supportive gear). My powerlifting career has enabled me to hold seminars and lectures on correct form, programming, performance improvement, mobility, proper nutrition and sports supplements.
