May 24 ~ What a great weekend we had! It was wonderful seeing everyone again at the 2016 USPF National Championships. This was the first time that the Nationals have been held in Tucson. It was definitely a fantastic two day event, May 21 & 22, at the Desert Diamond Casino & Hotel with many American and State Records being made. At the Women's Nationals, trophies for Best Female Lifters went to Victoria Yarbrough in the Raw Division and Cristina Ramirez in the Equipped Division. Taking the Men's Best Lifter trophy in the Raw Division at the Men's Nationals was Zachary Moss. The Thunder Mountains won the 1st Place Team trophy again making it two years in a row. Congrats to ALL the lifters!
A lot was accomplished at the National meeting with exciting announcements coming soon. We are honored in being selected for the USPF Executive Committee and are fully committed to providing the best to the members in the USPF.
A great big Thank You goes to the Officials & Staff, the Lifters, the Spectators, and "Unbreakable Gear" for supporting the legendary United States Powerlifting Federation. Also, thank you to Michael Blue and the catering staff at Desert Diamond Casino for all their work in making this event a success.

November 8th ~ It is with great sorrow for me to announce the passing of my Dad, Bill Hartmann, retired L.A.P.D. (Los Angeles Police Department) Lieutenant, former IPF & IPC Category 1 Referee, former USPF Technical Chairman, USPF champion lifter, and past owner of Magnum Fitness Systems (sponsor of Magnum Power Team) in Glendora, CA. Bill, age 82, was residing in Laughlin, NV, when he lost his long battle to kidney disease on November 7, 2013.
During his lifting career, he lifted in such meets as the USPF Nationals, CA Police Olympics, World Fire & Police Olympics and CA State Meets obtaining USPF Elite Class and numerous USPF American & State Records along with Master World Records. Many of his Records still stand. He was a tough competitor, pulling a 705 deadlift, 275 bwt, 60-64 age category in 1992 ~ the first 60+ year old in USPF history to pull over 700lbs in that age category. He was honored by being inducted into the L.A.P.D. Hall of Fame, awarded L.A.P.D. Athlete of the Decade and in 2004 inducted into the CA Powerlifting Hall of Fame. He will be truly missed by all who knew him.

May 14th ~ Message from USPF President, Lance Karabel:
"I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who both lifted and helped me to put Nationals together. First starting with the lifters, without your support we would have no federation, I thank you for that. Lifters ranged from beginners to elite and every single one of you put on an awesome show of strength. Even the few that had injured themselves before and during the meet still competed and showed a tremendous amount of heart. You all are the reason why this sport means as much to me as it does. Second my help from spotters to loaders, score table and judges. My people who helped set up and breakdown of the event. Our vendors and our sponsors. I greatly appreciate all the hard work , effort and support you all put in to help make this a successful event for everyone. Thank you very much for everything!"
