Larry Williams, better known to strength sports fans as Larry Wheels, has done a great job of branding. Over the last few years, the phrase “personal record” has become part of that brand because of the powerlifter’s (and sometimes bodybuilder/strongman competitor’s) seemingly endless string of PRs.
His first major personal record of 2021 involved the deadlift. On January 21st, Williams posted a video on his YouTube channel that showed him peak on the classic lift at 855 pounds (387 kg) for three reps. The moment can be seen at the 17: 45 mark in the video below.
