The powerlifting competition at the 2022 ARNOLD CLASSIC will be a fierce one, with some of the best powerlifters in the world competing for various titles. One of those powerlifters is Russell Yankee, who is coming off a strong performance at the IPL Worlds in Coventry, UK.
Russell has been lifting weights since he was a teenager. He started powerlifting as a way to build muscle and strength, and quickly fell in love with the sport. “Powerlifting is all about discipline,” says Russell. “You have to be willing to put in the hard work if you want to be successful.” And that’s certainly been the case for Russell. He’s spent years training hard and perfecting his technique, and it’s paid off in a big way.
But he’s not the only one who’s been putting in the work. Cameron Newkirk and Eric Spence are also top powerlifters, and they’re ready to take on the competition at the ARNOLD CLASSIC. “The ARNOLD CLASSIC is a prestigious event,” says Cameron. “It’s an honor to be invited and I’m going to do my best to win.” Eric agrees, adding that the competition will be tough but he’s up for the challenge. “I’m excited to compete at the ARNOLD CLASSIC,” he says. “It’s one of the biggest powerlifting events in the world and I’m looking forward to putting on a good show.” The powerlifting competition at the 2022 ARNOLD CLASSIC is sure to be exciting, so make sure to check it out!
