Joe Ladnier has competed as a powerlifter since his teens, winning many competitions in his time. He was the first man to lift more than 2100 pounds overall (combining the three powerlifting events at one show: benchpress, squat, and deadlift) in the 220-pound weight class. In 2006 he began competing in masters bodybuilding, getting 7th in the heavyweight class at the NPC Masters Nationals in 2007. He mentors other lifters and sponsors powerlifting competitions as well.
