Chris Bartl: Lifting Heavy So One Day They Can TooMay 27, 2013 by Victoria Strong
This is Chris Bartl. Yep, he's pretty strong. Make that he's insanely strong. He's also got an incredibly big heart. Chris is a competitive powerlifter and he's getting ready to head to his latest competition in North Carolina. The Backyard Bash will showcase some of the strongest men and women in America -- including Chris who will be lifting nearly 900 pounds. But Chris isn't just lifting weights, he's turned his personal achievement into an opportunity to raise funds to help change SMA.
UPDATE: The Backyard Bash was a big success for Chris. He set three personal records, lifted 800 pounds in one lift and a combined 2005 pounds in one day, won a 1st Place trophy, and qualified for XPC semi finals. He also raised $800 for theGSF! Thank you Chris for literally pushing your physical strength to the limits to help conquer a disease that robs children of theirs. NEVER GIVE UP.
