We Are Lifters Of Iron & Stone

We are lifters of Iron & Stone. While the world becomes soft and seeks convenience in every aspect of life, we choose a different path. A path that leads us to lift crass implements made of iron and stone in dusty garages, musty basements, rainy backyards, and chalk filled training facilities. We prefer this over a gym with shiny machines, tanning beds, televisions, and free bagels. We wear our bruises and cuts proudly. We smile at the look of bewilderment on a co-worker's face when he sees the atlas stone kiss on our forearms. We joke about the limp we have following heavy squats or yoke. With popped capillaries in our eyes and a few ibuprofen, we show up to train and gladly put...

How I Became a Mediocre Athlete

The first time I touched a barbell was only 3 1/2 years ago. I have been competing for the last two years and placed 8th out of 10 in my first open sanctioned competition.

Humble Beginnings

It all starts here. One t-shirt design, some ideas in a notepad, and some broader ideas of direction.  I seek to do only a few things in life: to become stronger than the day before, to provide support and stability for my family, and to give back to the community and the hardworking underprivileged. I am still figuring out percentages and charities, but a portion of all sales will go to charity. I will be 100% transparent in donations, and will never give to those that have political or religious agenda.  I am just a modest, amateur strongman that has found a love for lifting iron and stone. I am honored to be given the opportunity to be part of this community and...
