This morning I had the privilege of working with Leon, 70 year old father of @elggardner, again after first introducing him to powerlifting in March 2016. Leon is blind, which makes for a very unique and fun approach to coaching, and together we managed to clean up his form and hit a PR on both squat, 210lbs, and deadlift, 255lbs! In the year since I last saw Leon, he competed in his first powerlifting meet in Utah and broke the state records on bench press and deadlift. He will be stepping back on the platform again in September to see if he can shatter his own records. Thank you to Leon for the opportunity to work with you and the inspiration and motivation you offer all of us!
