About

. Lea Ann has been an Educator for 29 years now.

She started in Powerlifting in 1987 at the suggestion of her husband and coach. Lea Ann has battled scolosis since age 22. We thought heavy weight training would help arrest the condition by strengthening her spinal column and back in general. The effects of training showed promise fairly quick. When Lea Ann started she was 4’11’’ and weighed a hefty 150+. The Scoliosis and 1 leg being an inch shorter than other made her inactive. She often dealt with a hip that would pop out of the socket on her short leg with no advance warning.Leaving her in constant pain. Powerlifting changed all that. As her lifts grew her health issues were minimized. Her 1st meet had her doing a 200 squat 80 bench and 235 Deadlift. in 132 weight class. that was 6 months from her start of training in 1987. 1988 saw her climb to a USPF masters Classification total of 675 total in the 123 weight class.1989 Saw her qualify for USPF Elite Clasification Total. 330 squat 121 bench 330 deadlift 782 total.We have always believed in Drug free lifting so we moved to the ADFPA in 1991. I ‘m lucky in that. I got to know Brother Bennett thru phone conservations.He will always be remembered as a Man among men in my book.I think of Pete Alaniz the president of Titan suits the same way.He started supporting Lea Ann as a sponsored athlete in about 1989.In 1992 Lea Ann competed at her 1st ADFPA Nationals. She Squatted 347 Bench 143 and Deadlifted 402 .887 total .The deadlift record at that time was 369 she raised it by 33 lbs. 15 kg that day. Not bad considering she has one active erector muscle in her back because of the spinal curvature from Scoliosis. Lea ann won the nationals at 55.5 kg .setting records in Deadlift and total. She went to the Worlds in Derbyshire England mainly because Pete Alaniz helped us with Airline costs to get there.
