Randy is one of Durables OGs and original founding members from 2014 and we love that we get to recognize him this month! For those that don't know Randy (after this years open I doubt many don't) the first thing you'll immediately recognize is his intensity and innate ability to goat anyone around him into lifting heavier than they wanted to. It's almost a super power.
and at the age of 54 when most men are slowing down Randy continues to challenge himself...at the beginning of this year he was finally able to master the ring and bar muscle up after months and months of practice, a feat that most 20 year olds struggle with! Congratulations Randy, we couldn't be prouder of a young man like you!
