On a constant journey of self improvement through strength training, Larry Wheels is looking to break another record. While he’s already put up some impressive numbers as of late, the powerlifter now has his sights set on a new goal.

For months now, Larry Wheels has been putting in work on the strict curl. The American strongman, bodybuilding and powerlifter has trained hard and has edged closer and closer to securing his goal of breaking the world record. He recently disclosed the effects PEDs have had on his body in order to recover faster and improve his training.

Currently the world record for the strict curl stands at 249lbs. That’s a massive amount of weight to say the least. But Larry Wheels seems poised and ready to take on the challenge.

Recently the Strength Wars star has achieved a major milestone on the way to the world record in just several months of training. He has set a personal record in the strict curl at 231lbs, just 18lbs short of the world record.
