Congratulations to AHC Member Dmitry Tepper for his recent exceedingly successful outing in his first powerlifting meet. Dmitry competed April 21st at the Mid-Atlantic Strength Sports Weekend USPA powerlifting Event. Not only did Dmitry win the 80 kilogram weight class for the 45-49 age groups, he set state and national records. In his first excursion in to the world of competitive powerlifting he set Maryland state records for his weight, and age group in the back squat and bench press. On his last lift of the day Dmitry broke the current national deadlift record by over 40 lbs. Dmitry is a prime example of what hard work and the right help can do for any fitness goal. Best wishes in training for next competition.
