ECWC fighter Spotlight: Andre Pratama Suhalim

1)How long have you been training at ECWC & what was your reasoning for joining?
•I have been training with ECWC since 2010. I wanted to get stronger and fitter to supplement my conditioning for Muay Thai at the time. Kevin then introduced me to Scott and the rest is history.

2)Difference in athletic performance since starting?
•Scott will tell you that I was one of the weakest links in his fighter training camp when I started, but I never gave up. I kept coming back almost every Saturday for a quick 30 minutes of torture for years. I also started joining the lifting program on the weekdays for the past 3 years to further improve my performance and it all paid off. I definitely feel much much stronger and more athletic than I was 10 years ago.

3)Max Deadlift
•385lbs

4)Max squat
•325lbs

5)Max Bench
•215lbs

6)Favorite movement and why?
•It has to be deadlift for me. I feel that deadlift is one of the most intense workouts where you have to utilize a lot of different muscles in your body and I always use it as a way to gauge my strength. Even though a good (and hard) deadlift session can drain me out sometimes, I also feel very accomplished at the same time, especially when I know my numbers are improving.

7)What current athletic goals do you have now?
•Strength training has become a healthy addiction of mine. My focus nowadays is to get stronger, to beat my PR every year.

Both runs from the Special Olympics Plane Pull today. This is a great charity event that runs every year at the Long Beach Airport. We ended up winning with the two best times of the day, our best at 4.33 secs. We bested the reigning champions LASD by over 1/2 of a second. This win was only made possible by the great efforts of @athenamccandlish for uniting the best Strongman, Highland Games and Powerlifting clans in SoCal. #eastweststrength #ecwc #wolfpackplanepull #thetraininghall #houseofpower #longbeachplanepull #specialolympics

Blizzard Spotlight: Paul Warzecha

1)How many seasons have you completed?
•I’ve been with ECWC for just over 2 years.

2)favorite movement & why?
•Anytime we get to move the strongman implements around is a good day... Yokes, atlas stones, flipping tires. My biggest love/hate relationship is with the farmers carry. Nothing else fires up your traps or tests grip strength like it.

3)biggest difference in lifestyle since joining?
•My mobility was terrible when I started.
Spending every day in front of a computer made everything so tight I couldn’t squat to parallel or deadlift from the floor.

4)biggest difference in physical health?
•Improving my fitness with ECWC has helped me stay ‘relatively’ injury free playing hockey, I easily maintain at <10% bodyfat and I have the energy to keep up with my toddler💪🏼😎

5)Max deadlift, bench, squat:
•255 bench
•310 squat
•385 dead

6)Fat loss/ muscle gained since joining:
•At my leanest I cut down to 150 lbs at 5% bodyfat with ECWC. I’m currently up ~20 lbs of mostly lean mass to 170.9 after our last bootcamp session.
