It has come as a surprise to nobody that Larry Wheels has been able to pick up skills in strongman so effectively. They were put on display in a big way when he had a solid training session.
At this point, it seems like there is not a single strength sport in the world that Wheels cannot be at least pretty good at. Whether it be powerlifting, arm wrestling, or bodybuilding, he has a knack for these types of athletic endeavors.
Most recently, the PR wrecking machine has been putting some focus into strongman. This has seen him deliver some pretty incredible moments, even working with some elite strongman athletes to hone his craft.
This has led Larry Wheels to get even better at strongman, with the knowledge to back up his raw strength. The dividends of that work were put on full display, with a recent post to his Instagram.
In the pair of videos he shared, Larry can be seen crushing a massive 167kg (368lb) log press. On top of that, he was able to hoist up a sturdy 145kg (320lb) sand bag, tossing it over a barrier, while working with Andrew Jacked.
Sheesh, that was a solid performances from Wheels. There is still some work for him to do, in terms of his form for both exercises, but that will come with time, and he will get smoother with each session.
As impressive as this was, Larry has been hitting a solid stride in his training recently. Whether it be with the strongman work, or just general powerlifting skills, he has been accomplishing a lot.
This came just three weeks after Wheels was seen in the gym, scoring a new rep PR with a 387kg (855lb) deadlift triple. In case you missed that jaw droopingly incredible showing, you can check it out below.
With as much as Larry Wheels has been training strongman, it will be interesting to see if he ever attempts to compete in this sport. There is no doubt that he has the strength to be successful, it is just a matter of developing his technique.
Even if he does not end up competing as a strongman, he is still learning and showing some solid skills. He is always the type of guy who likes to test himself with something new, and that seems to just be continuing here, when it comes to the sport of strongman.
