"Hi, my name is Matt Nelson. For the last 2 years I have been a competitive powerlifter and bodybuilder. I have done decently at both sports, but felt like I wasn’t reaching my full potential. After my performance at 2016 USAPL Raw Nationals, I knew I needed to make a change. That change started with a decision – choose one sport and give it your all. So I decided to put everything I had into powerlifting. I knew in order to do that I would need some guidance, which led me to Joe Stanek and The Strength Athlete. I started working with Joe shortly after Raw Nats, and have been blown away by how much he has helped me in such a short amount of time. This is easily the best all of my lifts have ever looked and felt. No more poverty bench! Hiring Joe was definitely the best decision I made in 2016. Couldn’t be happier with the results I have gotten. 2017 USAPL Raw Nationals here we come!"
