Frank’s Barbell Club hosted the 2017 Heavylift Championships on May 13, 2017. It may not have been the largest turnout for a Heavylift Championships, but it was great time. We had a lot of laughs (like Joe Jr popping a rivet on the neck lift head gear) and saw some great lifting. It was very impressive to see all lifters exceed the 1 Ton mark.

     thus ending the Neck Lift competition. From what we hear, this is the 
     second time he has done that.

After the lifts were complete Frank and Colleen hosted the lifters for a BBQ (and the weather cooperated). I was master chef at the grill for the day (Gordon Ramsey would have been proud).

A huge thanks to Mark Raymond and Frank’s Barbell club for putting on this great event.

Lebanon Valley RD

By Denny Habecker

MEET RESULTS

Lebanon Valley Spring Record Day

The Lebanon Valley Spring Record Day was a big success! Five lifters set 23 new USAWA Records. 89 Year old Art Montini   started things off with some great Finger Lifts, and things just kept getting better from then on. We had 69 year old Barry Pensyl  from Easton, 36 year old Michael Rabich from Queens, New York , 22 year old Kohl Hess back in action, and last but not least,  13 year old Aidan Habecker doing some great Vertical Bar Lifts. Newcomer Michael Rabich did some great deadlifts and a difficult lift I personally had never seen done before, a Pullover and Press with  Wrestler’s Bridge. He did 60 Kg. [132 Lbs] on that lift.  After the lifting Judy treated us to some good food, as she always does.
