I want to give a shoutout to my long-time athlete, good friend, and minority partner in Outlaw Industries – Paul Castaneda. He’s gone from a multiple year top-ten Regional athlete, to a national caliber lifter in the last year. A few weeks ago he qualified for his first American Open – at the ripe old age of 34 – and he keeps hitting PRs, despite the fact that he has no idea how to speak kilos. And, in the next year his Old Man Strength will kick in, and maybe he will be Outlaw Barbell’s first World Champion (if Jeb and Talayna don’t beat him to it).
