Hey MWodies,

In this episode of “I am MWod”, I want to take a moment and introduce you to one of the greatest strength athletes of a generation,  Laura Phelps.  Laura trains out of Westside Barbell, in Ohio and about a week ago accomplished some pretty freaky feats of strength.

To wit:

  • World Record Squat; 745 lbs.
  • World Record Bench Press 530 lbs
  • Deadlift (paltry 525lbs)
  • World Record Total 1800lbs
  • First Woman to ever total 11x bodyweight.

Oh, and by the way, Laura is a level 10 gymnast.

“Thank you Kelly and for making it possible for me to reach a career long goal of an 11x bodyweight total! I would not have been able to overcome my adductor injury and compete at 100% without your help in giving me the most optimal and effective mobility routine. It made a tremendous difference and I will continue to do these stretches and more in all of my training!”
