Larry Wheels Shares Throwback Video Before He Had Any Muscle

Larry Wheels downsized.

So it appears that avid strength athlete Larry Wheels wasn’t always the muscle bound beast that he is today. Recently the powerlifter made a throwback post to social media that is sure to blow everyone’s minds. In the video Larry looks completely downsized and almost unrecognizable compared to his current stature.

No matter what a person chooses to do in life we all start from somewhere. There’s no way that an individual can start something and automatically be good at it, unless they are a natural of course. Even then it takes some time to get down the mechanics particularly for an athlete. For an athlete it can take some time before they actually see some results from their constant training.

As far as building quality muscle goes it takes a considerable about of training, patience, and determination. Patience in particular is necessary in order to make it past the early days where progress is slow. But if you do have that patience and determination the results can be incredible.

That was clearly the case for avid powerlifter and bodybuilder Larry Wheels. The strength athlete has become well known for his massive amount of musculature and strength. But again like everyone else he didn’t begin his journey chock full of muscle. It took many years of lifting and breaking PRs before the popular strength athlete became the man he is today.

Before that however, Larry Wheels had very little muscle on his frame. Recently Larry posted a throwback video of himself at a much younger age spotting a training partner at the gym. From the looks of the video he was clearly far younger than we’ve ever seen him before.

Me spotting for the first time.

Guess how old I was!

Larry Wheels has since gone from skinny strength athlete hopeful to incredibly strong, incredibly well-muscled lifter.

308lbs/140kg x44 reps PR.

2 days ago had arm wrestling practice which lit up my bicep brachialis to 10/10

Slapped on some @teampersonalrecord elbow wraps and the pain went to 2/10
