Congrats to LaVerne Myers for being selected as the USAWA Lifter of the Month for January!!!

I know I’m going back a few months for this recognition, but I intend this year to select a USAWA Lifter of the Month for each month of this year and not miss a month!

LaVerne earned this award because he made it to the Dino Gym Challenge during a blizzard.  The Dino Gym Challenge was the only USAWA competition held in January, and the only other competitor in the Challenge was myself.  I didn’t feel like I earned it because I can walk to the gym.  Pa had to drive a quarter of a mile!

Congrats LaVerne!!!

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.

Congrats Tony!
