Rocky “Mr. Perfect” Mahoneyimg_0420

Form Corrector and General Nuisance 

@rockythemahoney

Contact:   rockyrmahoney@gmail.com

Bio:

He believes that passion is the best teacher, and has shown that through his own fitness journey. He started in early 2015 at around 225-230 lbs without a working knowledge of what he was doing, and without clear goals in mind other than the ever popular “lose weight”. After several months of implementing the advice and knowledge of the general public, he found that he was dissatisfied with his results, or lack thereof. It was May of that same year when he decided to really learn how to approach fitness in, not necessarily the right way, but a better way. At this time he was weighing in at 190-195 lbs, and had a 700-800 lb powerlifting total with poor form. He dove headfirst into the pursuit of everything diet and fitness related, reading over 200 studies, a dozen books, and started over from scratch to learn proper weight lifting form. After another six months of hard studying, and harder lifting, he arrived at a bodyweight of 165 lbs and an improved total of 900 lbs. He has continued his education into this subject that he is most passionate about, and is devoted to contributing what he knows to those who are trying to get STRONGer.

Strength Goals: 

1500 lb. Total in the 198-205 lb. weight class

Best Lifts (In the 181 lb. weight class):

Gym- 405lbs. Squat          265lbs. Bench Press          435lbs. Deadlift

Bodyweight+70lbs chinup

Jake Orcino

@jakeorcino

A Vegan BodyBuilder who is always excited to train with the team and get STRONGer! He has always focused more with how the exercise is performed versus how much weight is on the bar, but has now been pushing himself more in the BIG 3 (squat, bench press, deadlift) to get STRONGer while still maintaining form. 

Jake is a great addition to our team and we are always pleased to see him as he may be the funniest person on the team, always making us laugh.
