Lifter of the Month – Tony Patterson
By Al Myers
LIFTER OF THE MONTH FOR MARCH –
A big congrats goes to Tony Patterson for being selected as the USAWA Lifter of the Month for March. Tony lifts out of Frank’s Barbell Club in Walpole, MA and is a regular participant at club events. Tony loves the USAWA grip lifts, and at a club record day in March put up a couple very impressive records. He lifted 200 pounds with the Right Hand Fulton Dumbbell, and 210 pounds in the Right Hand 2″ Vertical Bar Lift.
I first met Tony at the 2016 IAWA World Championships in Lebanon last fall, which was his first IAWA event. I was very impressed with his lifting at Worlds and enjoyed getting to know him.
