Can you tell us a little about yourself? Where are you from, how you ended up in MA, what you do for a living, etc. Well, I’m a Taurus so I like long walks on the beach and eating artisan doughnuts. Seriously. But really. I was actually born in Boston, Massachusetts and spent the first seven years of my life here. Then I moved to Maryland, which is where I grew up. I came back Read More

February Mass-Lift Featured Lifter: Joe Cappellino

02/01/2017 Roy Apostle 0

If you have been around USA Powerliting in Massachusetts at all in the past decade you will have experienced the Joe Cappellino phenomenon.  Big Joe, aka the Girth God aka the Sultan of Squat (C. Respect) aka the Italian Stallion, is as strong as he is controversial. Raw with wraps and suit or just plain raw he tends to out-squat everyone in the room, and makes sure that we all know it. From founding a powerhouse Collegiate Read More

January Featured Lifter: Liane Blyn

01/01/2017 Roy Apostle 0

Liane Blyn took first at the World Open Championships, her second World Title. In Massachusetts she has served as a co-State Chair for the last few years and without her the current High School program would probably not exist. She is a great lifter, coach (Franklin High School), and mentor, and will be sorely missed as she moves on to newer and better things. It is my great pleasure to announce that the January Mass-lift Read More

If you’ve been around powerlifting in New England at any point in your life you will probably have come into contact with Frank Juszynski. Frank, a Milford MA native, is one of just a few equipped lifters left in New England.

October Mass-Lift Featured Lifter: Lodrina Cherne

I met Lodrina Cherne after I had first moved back to the Boston area at Total Performance Sports (TPS) in Malden where she trains. Having been around lots of powerlifters, I was impressed that she sought to excel not only as a raw lifter but as an equipped competitor as well. In addition to being a tremendous athlete, Lodrina is an exemplary member of the USAPL. She coaches and mentors other athletes, constantly seeks way to volunteer Read More

After his best lifter performance at the 2012 Massachusetts State Championship in December, Andrew Mastone has been selected as our newest Feature Lifter.

At that meet, he placed third overall with the second highest total of the meet. Sam’s next goal is to compete in a National Read More
