Larry WheelsLarry Wheels Biography

Larry Williams also known as Larry Wheels, a Bronx, NY native was born December 3, 1994. He grew up in poverty and spent time much of his in foster homes as a child. He often faced dangerous situations like walking through dark alleys and rough neighborhoods to get to school. Coming from poverty, his goal was to be bigger and stronger so nobody would bully him and so he could protect himself from any sort of danger.

To achieve this goal, he began to do pull-ups, push-ups, and sit-ups every day. With his mothers help, he built himself a weight set consisting of two 40lb concrete blocks and a broomstick, which was not much but at the time it did the job. This weight set helped Larry do complex exercises like bicep curls and military press, which helped his physique progress.

Gym Training & Tremendous Growth

As the years went by, Larry began his first job, which allowed him to afford a gym membership. Now that he had access to a gym, he witnessed tremendous growth. Following a half year of lifting, Larry lost his interest in bodybuilding and chose to work on strength. Having no dad or mentor to show him, Larry started working on his own strength training program. Larry is a self-made athlete.

Larry has been lifting weights for years and later took it a step further to become a professional powerlifter. Larry set two world records by 2017 and became an inspiration for people along his journey. Larry is now one of the strongest powerlifters in the world, with a massive following.

Larry’s Injury

The team at Generation Iron was fortunate enough to sit down and talk to Larry, and one of the topics was his worst gym injury. Here is what he had to say:

Enter Bodybuilding

Not content simply succeeding as a world class powerlifter, Larry Wheels was determined to showcase just how far the human body can be pushed. He decided to start competitive bodybuilding (while maintaining his powerlifting lifestyle), which is similar to former Mr. Olympia champ, Ronnie Coleman, or fitness influencer, Mike O’Hearn. Larry had been known to hold quite the impressive physique compared to most other powerlifters. It was time to put it to the test against other bodybuilders.

In 2018, Larry Wheels competed in first amateur bodybuilding competition in the NPC. He received first place overall. This was simply the first step towards Larry’s goal of earning his pro card and competing against the greatest bodybuilders in the world. Then in 2023, he competed at the Amateur Olympia, after winning the NPC Ultimate Warriors.

It was also announced in 2020 that Larry Wheels would be one of the athletes featured in the upcoming documentary Strength Wars: The Movie. A film based off of the popular digital series and brand that pits athletes of all strength disciplines against one another in a battle of strength.

At first, Larry believed the more you train, the bigger you would get. He worked out at least six times per week, not really taking much rest from his training. However, he realized how important recovery is to grow, and now, he trains three times per week. This allows him to fully recover in between his exhausting powerlifting sessions.

I work mainly in content writing, focusing my free time on bodybuilding and strength sports. I was introduced to fitness in high school and after watching Generation Iron movies. I love to train. I have competed multiple times, even winning a junior title in classic physique. I have a bachelor's in criminal justice and business obtained through Alvernia University. When I am not focused on work or training, I enjoy watching films or reading about anything and everything.
