Meet John Clay

The man behind the powerlifting muscles.


WABDL RECORD BREAKER

Johnny Macho (John Clay) is a dead-lifter and has broken state records in Oregon and Colorado while powerlifting with the World Association of Bench Pressers and Dead-Lifters (W.A.B.D.L.).


John’s return from the war was more than difficult

John served in the military from August 10th, 1970 until August 11th, 1971 and was last stationed in Khe Sanh, Vietnam. After he returned home, he began suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is a mental health condition that was triggered by the terrifying events occurring during war. He needed to combat the PTSD and started lifting as a form of stress relief.


HE'S STILL COMPETING!

He will be lifting in Las Vegas, NV in hopes of breaking his Colorado record of 451lbs while weight in at 165lbs. He will be lifting twice in 2018 in competitions.


Updates will be posted as they take place.
