Tee is 22 years old and resides in northern Mississippi. He makes his way all the way to NBS Fitness in Memphis, TN to train at a powerlifting gym. He has been lifting for roughly six years and has been a competitive powerlifter for three years. Tee has already competed in 28 full power meets. He is currently ranked in the Top 10 in both the 220 and 242 raw, with wraps, powerlifting divisions.

Tee has lifted in The Cage for the past two years and has put on an impressive show. We are glad to officially add him to our family.

“I feel honored to be a part of Animal and what they represent as well as being a part of the group of elite guys that are currently on the team.”

Tee competes very often and will be chronicling his journey and thoughts here: http://forum.animalpak.com/showthread.php?43847-Drivin-from-Within&highlight=

Pete was born and raised in Southern, Wisconsin before moving to Lexington, Kentucky about a year ago. He’s been lifting for just over 10 years now. He began his lifting journey at the same time as his father, as it was something they could do together and support each other through:

“Our basement gym was expanding all the time as the two of us got more serious and it started to develop into more than just a hobby for me.”

After a few years, Pete began competing at a local level, and then eventually started traveling for bigger meets all over the country:

“My favorite lift is definitely the deadlift because of the simple nature of the lift and how it's the lift I feel you can be the most aggressive with.”

We all got to witness Pete give it hell and pull a massive amount of weight two years in a row at The Cage. Interestingly enough, Pete was not even scheduled to lift earlier this year at The Cage and was merely attending the expo. At a moment’s notice, he was able to fill in for another athlete that was unable to arrive in time due to inclement weather. He put on quite an exhibition with no preparation. These are the kinds of moments that define Animal.

Pete’s best total is 1851 lbs without knee wraps in the 242 lb class. He squats 667 lbs without wraps, benches 418 lbs and deadlifts 788 lbs without a belt in competition.

“I wanted to be a part of Animal because I saw more than just a brand. I saw a company that did more for the sport of powerlifting than any other company. They have forged an elite group of lifter's who are all fierce competitors in their own right, but who are also genuinely good people. I love the direction that they've taken with their supplement line too. The new releases are great. I've been a huge fan of the new Animal Whey, Juiced Aminos, and Rage XL in particular. The taste and quality are great, and they allow me to train at a high level.”
