David, with the precision of an engineer, executed his bench press lift, a testament to his dedication and discipline.

His son Isaac, a newcomer to the base powerlifting competition, mirrored his father’s determination, showcasing his raw talent on the bench press.

This father-son duo’s participation in the training competition was more than just a display of physical strength. It was a symbol of their shared passion, a metaphor for their bond, and a testament to their mutual respect and admiration.

Their story serves as a reminder that strength sports are not just about the numbers on the barbell. They’re about the people, the community, and the shared experiences that make these events so special.

As the saying goes, “The family that lifts together, stays together.” And in the case of the Lees, they’re not just staying together, they’re growing stronger together.
