Larry “Wheels” Williams has been absolutely crushing weight lately. He’s currently in prep for Insurrextion, which is a RPS Powerlifting meet that’s taking plan on November 18th in Hempstead, New York. If you follow him on Instagram, then you already know the big weight I’m referencing. But if not, then check it out below.
Williams is one of the few powerlifters who can consistently make PR attempts look relatively easy. That’s not to say he doesn’t grind from time to time, but he has a crazy way of making lifetime weight attempts look like a casual 3-RM weights. Check out his latest 840 lb deadlift PR from yesterday.
It’s going to be exciting to see the numbers Williams puts up at the meet. This will be his first meet back after his injury from earlier this year. In April, Williams fell under a 793 lb squat at the CETC US Open, and injured his quad.
Then in June, Williams announced he’d be switching to bodybuilding for a good amount of time, and it appears he’s back to powerlifting for the moment. Although the original poster on Reddit of Williams’ video mentioned that he stated he wants to do a local bodybuilding show after he wraps up the meet.
And to give a little more context into what I meant earlier by Williams making a 1-RM PR look like a 3-RM. Check out his 771 lb x 3 PR from late September.

In addition to these two huge deadlift videos, Williams has also been rebuilding his squat, but almost had a very close mishap on October 2nd. The video below shows Williams hitting a 750 lb x 3 squat PR, but that was after misloading the bar to 870 lbs.
A misload of 120 lbs could have been very bad, and we’re happy Williams was lucky to come out of the situation unscathed.
The RPS Powerlifting Insurrextion is than five weeks away, it’s going to be interesting to see what new feats Williams performs.
