26  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Radio Debate Replay: Las Vegas Power Hour (Sept Discussion) Powerlifting Topics on: November 15, 2012, 12:58:23 PM


The host, Anthony Pastorello and I had a highly charged and entertaining, two hour discussion and debate on a wide array of powerlifting subjects and points of interest.

Listen to the full replay of the broadcast at:

The introduction ends and the conversation begins twelve and a half minutes into the broadcast and you can skip ahead if you want to.



TOPICS DISCUSSED
Which divisions and federations in the sport I feel are marketable, which are not and how I came to those conclusions.

One of the biggest barriers to the sport’s success as a whole (and, no, it’s not the bench shirts and it’s not the number of national/world championships.)

Hardcore Powerlifting’s reasons for not including drug testing in our professional promotions.

My plea to the various promoters and media personalities to keep drug tested divisions alive and well, but to cease and desist with making drug use and drug testing a hot topic when presenting the sport to the general public.

The lack of investigative journalism in powerlifting and how that’s created an over sensitive environment where the athletes and fans see questions and debates as “attacks” and “fights.”

The comparison of using synthol in bodybuilding to using super shirts and suits in powerlifting.

The main reason why so many active participants in the sport are leaving the forums and message boards and moving to Facebook and the other social networking sites.

The BenchAmerica shows that aired on FOX Sports Net and on Comcast Sports Net and why the series was closed down after four productions (a somewhat behind-the-scenes perspective.)

How HardcorePowerlifting.com got started and what we’re trying to accomplish in regards to taking the sport to the next level of commercial success.

Why the lifters who’ve joined the sport over the last five years don’t know about most of the champions and legends of the 60s, 70s and 1980s.

How I got into the business (working with Jake Jones, who’s now the official artist for Jeff Everson’s Planet Muscle Magazine and for The Hardcore Powerlifting Federation in addition to owning BodybuildingUniverse.com)

What the UFC, pro strongman and the NFL can teach powerlifting about building a sport from the ground up in America.

“Selling the fight” as opposed to starting a fight simply for the purpose of being shocking and insulting.

And more, including spotlights on various personalities and community sites in the game.

28  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Hostile Takeover Reported at House Of Pain Ironwear (Rick Brewer "Locked Out") on: November 14, 2012, 03:25:57 PM

^^^ Rick Brewer, the founder and now former CEO of House Of Pain IronWear, standing on the right in this photograph. ^^^

“About 17 years ago; I started HOUSE OF PAIN. It has been my great pleasure to meet most of the best weightlifters and fighters in the world. We have sponsored almost 8,000 events, and too many fighters and weightlifters to count. Earlier this year; I took on new partners to help us take the HOUSE OF PAIN brand to the next level. We were so excited! Unfortunately, they were not completely honest with me about their plans. They do not want to sponsor events or lifters, and prefer to change the style to something a bit more ‘generic’ so that it can be sold in stores. Their plans will sever HOP ties to the weightlifters and fighters that we know and love, and I cannot abide this change.
They waited until we went on vacation, then fired Kris and I, and changed the locks on the HOUSE OF PAIN building! They fired some HOP employees, and told others that we had quit. Our HOP employees knew that we hadn’t quit, but we were still locked out. Lawyers got involved, because it is a complex thing to fire an owner like this, but it looks like it will stick. I am sick.”
– Rick Brewer, the founder of HouseOfPain.com, by way of email communication this morning



“Our attorney told them that even if we could not return to HOP; all HOP-sponsored events must continue. We had several big events scheduled, and this Saturday (for one example) – the HOUSE OF PAIN APF TX Cup was to be held in our new HOP building. We have been working to make sure that we honored all of our event agreements, but last night – they cancelled all events and said they would not allow the Powerlifting meet to occur in the new HOP building! This was the last straw, because this harms hundreds of our close friends. If you have any comments, feel free to call my ‘partners’ at # 972-475-0770 (Adam, Matt, & Greg).
I walk away from HOP with a heavy heart, but I am proud to have known the best lifters and fighters in the world. Thanks for all of the memories; I hope to see some of you again."

Everybody knows that Old Man Jenkins would have gotten away with his dastardly schemes if it weren’t for those darn kids and their investigative dog. I wanted to run this story so Rick had a chance to be heard via a direct quote (which is posted above.)

Listen to the replay of the 2 hour interview at:

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/vegas-power-hour/2012/10/27/episode-14-the-king-of-bench-review


Topics Discussed

What defines and constitutes a “Big time powerlifting promotion?"

Why Hardcore Powerlifting (and a few other promotions) are by far the best investment for sponsors’ and athletes’ time and money.

Eric Spoto’s historic 700 pound raw push at BOADApparel.com’s Kings of the Bench VIII (and behind the scenes gossip from the competition.)

The trouble with unqualified, unimaginative and lackadaisacal event promoters leeching off the full time professionals in the industry and the top competitors and how they’re some of the sport’s biggest detractors to achieving major commercial success.

The media power of the bodybuilding press corps VS the powerlifting specific one.

Why the multi ply, shirt and suit, equipment lifting federations added raw divisions to their contest menus.

MHP's Kings of the Bench V will be taking place at The Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo in Mesquite (Dallas), Texas on April 2nd. All entry forms must be in the mail no later than March 1st.

Every year I get phone calls and emails from around the country from benchers saying that they WOULD enter and that they WOULD win if it weren't for Joe Mazza competing (in the past the prize money has been "winner take all".)

So, this year I decided to give these self promoters a chance to back up their talk and we threw another $1,000 into the prize money pile and all of it's going towards the 2nd place finisher in the 175 and Under Bwt Division. That means that 1st place will win $1,000 cash in that class and 2nd place will also pick up $1,000 cash.

Our 176+ weight division's stacking up nicely but, to date, we've only got 2 benchers signed up for the lightweight division. And Joe Mazza's NOT one of them (he's got a lot of professional and family obligations going on this year and it's doubtful he'll be able to make the trip this time.)

We've announced this increased prize money by mailing out 100 gym posters, 5,000 event fliers and we ran a full page, full color ad in this month's Powerlifting USA. So the ostrich effect's not gonna work for these self proclaimed "champions in waiting." They know the offer's on the table, waiting for them to answer the call.

So, if your's are made out of steel (and not just hot air) then throw your ballz in a wheelbarrow and sign up to do battle at MHP's Kings of the Bench V !

To get an entry form please leave a voicemail at 1.503.221.2238 or email your full name and mailing address to Seanzilla@HardcorePowerlifting.com You can also download and print the entry form off the bottom of our website homepage at HardcorePowerlifting.com (just click on the PDF link directly below the online version of the entry form.)

But please remember that all entry forms must be post marked no later than March 1st, thanks!

All entry forms must be post marked no later than March 1st (no exceptions please.) Every show we get a few lifters who planned for and trained for the contest, yet didn't get to lift because they got around to trying to get signed up after the deadline had passed. Since we make custom competitor uniforms and we put together pre-game press packets, we aren't in a position to bend the rules and allow for last minute entries.

Interested lifters can download and print the entry form here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/pdf_Contest/coleman%202011%20entry%20form.pdf

You can also view and/or print the lifter information packet here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR THE RUSH OF POWERLIFTING IN FRONT OF A BIG AUDIENCE: Our show last year sold just over 3,000 general admission tickets. This year we're hyping up the contest more than ever by mailing out 5,000 fliers and 100 gym posters and by running a full page ad in Powerlifting USA (in addition to our online advertising.)

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN SOME SOLID PRIZE MONEY: The biggest bench in the 175 Division wins $1,000 CASH. The 2nd biggest bench in the 175 Division wins $1,000 CASH. The biggest bench in the 176+ Division wins $1,000 CASH. The 2nd biggest bench in the 176+ Division wins $1,000 CASH. The biggest push/pull total of the show wins $1,000 CASH. The biggest deadlift of the show wins $1,000 CASH. The 2nd biggest deadlift of the show wins $1,000 CASH. The lightest man to deadlift 800+ wins $1,000 CASH. The most bench reps with 315 wins $500 CASH. The most bench reps with 405 wins $500 CASH. And the most deadlift reps with 600 wins $500 CASH. That's $9,500 in total CASH prizes!

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR THE POSITIVE MEDIA EXPOSURE: Our contest video(s) will be featured on HouseOfPain.com, RxMuscle.com, Bodybuilding.com and on YouTube (of course.) We also routinely receive printed press coverage in Iron Man Magazine, Planet Muscle Magazine and in Powerlifting USA.

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR A TROPHY THAT REALLY MEANS SOMETHING: Most powerlifting contests give out 1st place trophies to just about every lifter in the competition. At our show, the Top 3 Lwt Benchers, Top 3 Hwt Benchers and the Top 3 Deadlifters will be getting trophies. When you win a trophy at one of our pro promotions, you've got something that really means you surpassed a very tough field of competitive lifters.

CHOOSE TO LIFT FOR A RECORD THAT'S RECOGNIZED AND RESPECTED BY THE WHOLE GYM WORLD: If you look at our current federation records here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/pdf_Contest/coleman%202011%20pg%206.pdf

and here:

http://www.hardcorepowerlifting.com/pdf_Contest/coleman%202011%20pg%207.pdf

you'll see that the bar is set very high, so setting a NEW record will be an accomplishment that you can be very proud of. Hardcore Powerlifting is also recognized and respected for our high standards of performace. So, getting a lift passed at our promotions means that you're officially certified to be at that level of strength and power (no bench shirts, no powerlifting suits and no gifts from the officials.) And Powerlifting USA ran our complete federation records list after our 2010 promotion and I'll be sending in the updated list to their publishing office after our April 2nd competition. Holding a Hardcore Powerlifting Federation record means that you've bested some of the strongest lifters in the world from the past six years of pro shows.

Please feel free to contact our business office if you need any assistance getting signed up to compete: Hardcore Powerlifting, Sean Katterle (pronounced "Cat Early"), 1.503.221.2238 (voicemail), Seanzilla@HardcorePowerlifting.com

More Prizes Added to MHP's Kings of the Bench III

In addition to the $10,000 in cash prizes being paid out at MHP's Kings of the Bench III and Clash of the Titans II (  thanks to our title sponsor, MHP,  http://www.GetMHP.com  ) we now have some excellent prizes for the 2nd place finishers in the benchpress division!
 
Niko Hulslander and Mark Martin of Extreme Obsession Sports Gear are awarding each of the (4) 2nd place benchpress finishers with an EO Sports Gear Benchpress Boards Vest!  http://www.eosportsgear.com

The EO Boards Vest retails for $119 and it's the best way to train with bench boards when you don't have a third training partner to hold the boards securely on your chest. I purchased an EO Boards Vest myself a few weeks ago when I was cleared to begin lifting heavier again. I have two training partners but, due to work and family obligations, it's rare that all three of us are able to meet up at the same time on benchpress training day - enter the EO Sports Boards Vest !

With a collapsible pouch, the EO Board Vest can easily hold 1-6 bench boards. So, whether you train alone or with a training partner, this vest can be easily adjusted to fit any body type. With 3 different sizes available (and several designs and colors) let the EO Board Vest become a staple product of your bench training. It's the best way to train your benchpress lockout (and to build your triceps) when you don't have always have three or more people training with you on bench days. The words I use to describe the EO Boards Vest are durable, sturdy and useable. Niko and Mark obviously put a good deal of time into the designing of this benchpress vest.

EO Sports Gear will be running a tradeshow booth at The Ronnie Coleman Classic (in the powerlifting hall) and they'll also be giving a 30 minute seminar on the MHP Powerlifting Stage while the benchers are warming up backstage. So, hopefully you can make it to The Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo to check out this cool new product in person !

50  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / The BenchAmerica 3 Video is Now Online on: December 21, 2008, 12:06:43 PM
The Complete BenchAmerica 3 video is now online at http://www.houseofpain3.com/wlsnews/index.php

BenchAmerica 3 took place in 2005 in Chicago. That year's event kept the benchpress super shirts limited to single ply material. BenchAmerica 3 was also a drug tested event and all prize winners were tested and had to pass their tests prior to their getting paid. All of the officials were affiliated with either the USPF , the USAPL , the APF or a combination of the three. Except for a few controversial "belly bench" calls on the part of the judges the meet was exceptionally well ran.

Bench America 3 was aired on Comcast Sports Net nationwide. Joe Mukite , the top co-sponsor, producer and promoter, paid out over $20,000 in cash prizes in addition to his bringing the sport of professional benchpressing to the general sports fan public.

Professional Benchpress Competitors Included: Brian Siders, Ryan Kennelly, Jason Jackson, Matt Lamarque, Kara Bohigian, Mari Asp, Brad Kelly, Bart Kelly, Joe Smith, Joe Mazza, Ray Hickman, Wade Hooper, Horace Lane, Kenny Dinolfo, Tony Succarotte, Dennis Cieri, Jennie Hollier and many other talented iron pressers.

The title sponsor for BenchAmerica 3 was Xanadu Builders of Chicago and I strongly urge anyone in the Chicagoland area (who's looking for a general contractor) to give them a call. Their website is http://www.xanadubuilders.com/

Additional Sponsors: House of Pain IronWear, Ivanko Barbell Company, Jiffy Lube of Chicagoland, Powerlifting USA Magazine, The US Marine Corps, Elgin Community College, Holiday Inn, XSport Fitness, Inzer Advance Designs, Titan Support Systems and Bovine Strength Systems.
