Julia (Ladewski) Anto is no stranger to success. Her 1124- pound overall ranks 7 th of all time in the 123- pound weight class; Powerlifting USA Publication ranked her as the leading female powerlifter in the nation in 2006, and she has placed 1 st or 2 nd in 16 of the 17 total national powerlifting competitions she has actually gotten in.
Nevertheless, the numbers do not tell the entire story; they hardly ever do.
Despite how substantial Julia’s achievements under the bar have actually been, she will be the very first to inform you she did not start this long-lasting journey in powerlifting (physical fitness) to break world-records or acquire nationwide recognition.
