Ed Minelli comepeted in the Raw APA Pennsylvania State Championships. Ed set personal records in all three lifts. The 20 year old junior of Ursinis College squatted 455 pounds, beating his previous best of 440, which was done in a squat suit. He then went on to bench 300, and Deadlift an astounding 625. With that pull, Minelli solidifies his status as the best deadlifter by formula on the Iron Revolution. Ed competes in collegiate wrestling but hopes to keep pushing his lifts through the winter, and be able to attend USAPL collegiate nationals in April, 2010.
