Years ago (like 7?) was in a conversation with someone that was at the same gym she was at and was working at said gym. They witness her and the current ex (I forget his name) leave a mess for them to clean up afterwards. Like plates and chalk scattered all about.

I put a comment on what was then her latest post about not putting their plates away. Following that her and that dude tried to shit on me and also follow me (yes, my account was private). Again, the comment was a bit smartass but nothing overly shitty.

Anyhow, I got the vibe then about them being some contrite cyber-bullies. But yeah, she and the ex seemed douchey and childish. Throw in almost a decade of IG simpage and you get this kind of behavior.

Honestly, hope she gains some perspective from this.

She's probably so narcissistic that she believes she had the right and that she is innocent

this thread belongs in the 'why we hate the police' thread.

lolz sweep the leg !

can't wait until someone gets a hold of the body cam footage

----------------

I would really like to see what a fem-let "25-time-record powerlifter" who has extensive fight training looks like when the sweep some rando cop's leg during an arrest? Point is all the barbell strength in the world and whatnot may not matter (so much) if you are a (small) chick going up against a slightly above average dude.

She got arrested again?

meh .... I guess people could say these are rumors for now, but seems like its based on some creditable / verifiable information



probably could just be a dispute over who owns some of the equipment

but that would imply she's liquidating her equipment for money for some (desperate) reasons

Modestly salacious reasons, of course charges are just charges (for now) but some of them seem likely to stick.

I'm sure it was someone on here who originally said it, but powerlifting really is the white trash sport.

I mean maybe in the older days. But currently ? I don't know. Many of the current IPF champions don't strike me as particularly "white thrash". Seems like a pretty middle class sport to me.

Agreed. When gyms like Westside Barbell were turning out a large number of lifters there were some ‘interesting’ characters at the forefront of the sport.

Considering the amount of Black, Hispanic, Latino, etc peeps involved now it’s not white trash. But middle class is fitting.

Of course I wasn't around back then, but to me it's making a transition from blue collar to decidedly upper half of middle class. It's still not a prestige sport like triathlons or whathaveyou, but it's definitely shed the underclass esthetic. Viewed through the lens of old blog posts/books/podcasts IMO the transition from "drug-tested" geared lifting (twice geared some might say) to drug-free raw is the watershed moment between the two.

Look at the modern influencers, it's not gritty crane operators getting patents from a basement while cruising for 30+ years. It's professors and people with solidly middle class jobs MAYBE doing some sports TRT, but always with max tier custom blood testing. They're lifting raw, but with Eleiko/Rogue bars and have 8 sets of "sleeves". The rise of Israetel/Austin/Nuckols/AI training (spreadsheets of if/thens of course) the downfall of Outlaw powerlifting and people welding their own racks.

It is a false current impression that anything has changed regarding test versus untested lifting, except untested now exists in more than a single small fed. All of the legendary guys (Coan et al) competed in TESTED feds, which all claimed and aimed to be drug free. The APF allowed for untested stuff, and the original WPO put actual money on the table to be a "Pro". Briefly. Kieran Kidder ran out of money (His own personal fortune) pretty quickly and the original died a less than graceful death after a few short years. That's not the way the story tends to be told, but that is how it actually was. From 1988 until on, virtually everything was a tested fed in some way, and there was huge anti-drug prejudice for the most part (Which is actually comical looking back on it).

There have been good companies making very nice stuff for a long time, it wasn't just York Barbell and home built and then suddenly Rogue. We used to walk into huge displays of very nice stuff at the expos and big comps. it was just expensive and most guys were already blowing their budgets travelling and training on their own money for free. Most lifters that I was around were far from poor or underclass, but generally very anti-pretty boy. That was for the BBers. Texas Power bars are still better than the Rogue ones that I have used, and Eleiko is still too expensive for what it is. Eleiko and Ivanko were always around, but you only saw them at actual contests so records could be set. People looking back, that weren't actually around, are being given a VERY false impression of how it was. And I'm saying this as a guy that trained with very known PLers and I have had conversations back stage with Ed Coan among others. The SM and PL guys were always comrades, and the BBers were their own weird world in the 90's and 2000's. It's a picture being painted, but it is far from accurate to think it has really changed outside of the popularity of RAW. And RAW is really just a repeat of the early equipment and the permitted stuff there is getting equally out of hand. New sleeves available now will add more to your lift than any of the first or second generation full equipment.

I more or less agree.

I do think there are more local/small comps that, when affiliated with ‘tested’ organizations, have a pretty good chance of being completely legitimate.

It’s that PL (and SM) is so much more popular that the percentages of truly natural lifters is probably larger but on the whole, the actual amount (by count) of people using PEDs is probably larger now, regardless of fed, than it was before.
