In this picture is USPF Legendary Powerlifter Jerry Irvine. Jerry still holds the 40-44 year age division Dead Lift Record with 771 lbs. His name is on the American Record Board along side Fred “Dr. Squat” Hatfield.
Also in this picture is a young Olympic Weightlifter and recent Lindenwood University Student-Athlete Blake Edwards. Coach Joe and Jerry used to have many conversations about Strength Training and discussed the similarities and differences between the sport of Weightlifting and Powerlifting.
Unfortunately, Jerry passed away several years ago after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. His memory and spirit will always live on at the Performance One Gym.
