Wheels’ new coaching journey hits a reflective milestone.
Larry “Wheels” Williams has been very forthcoming about his decision to stop using steroids and transition to Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). A powerlifter/strongman/powerlifter has been officially training with TRT for about half a year now. In the process, he documented several stages of this strength journey — perhaps sharing a massive squat from November 2022 and his most recent heavy deadlift from 2023 while in therapy.
Wheels’ latest update to TRT and New Energy Life A full mock powerlifting consisted of an athlete running through a meet. The idea was to test where his current one-rep maxes stood against the powerlifting staples of the squat, deadlift, and bench press. On January 7, 2022, the athlete shared a video on his YouTube channel explaining the said performance and his overall thought process.
Wheels showed off his bench press and deadlift entirely raw, save for the lifting belt, and used knee wraps for his squat. Here’s an overview of wheels’ mock powerlifting performance:
Larry Wheels | January 2023 Mock Powerlifting Meet Results
- Squat (W/Wraps) – 330 kilograms (727.5 pounds)
- Bench Press (Raw) – 230 kilograms (507.1 pounds)
- Deadlift (Raw) – 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds)
- Gross (Raw W/Wraps) – 910 kilograms (2,006.2 pounds)
One of the other important reasons that Wheels decided to hold this meeting Compare his top TRT lifts when he was on steroids and at a similar body weight. Athletes had higher personal records (PRs) for each of these lifts, but they had more bodyweight.
When it came to Wheel’s TRT squat while using knee wraps, he lifted 1.1 kilograms (2.5 pounds) more than his previous squat with a rolling PR from January 2014. Open Powerlifting. According to Wheels in the video, regarding his bench press, his lift of 230 kilograms (507.1 pounds) is 30 kilograms (66.1 pounds) lower than his bench press at the same body weight on steroids. Finally, Wheels didn’t hide his displeasure with his deadlift of 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds), but comparatively, it was his previous steroid-assisted PR of 374.7 kilograms (826 pounds) (again at relatively the same body weight).
To close out the visit (and the video), Wheels reflects on how far he’s come with TRT, this visit, and since ceasing his extended steroid use. One of the biggest names in strength sports seems to be enjoying how his new personal endeavor is unfolding.
“This preparation has been very enlightening, see what I am capable of with TRT… I am enjoying the process. I feel great. I think I look better than ever. Skin, sleep, mood, everything is stable.
