Larry Wheels Crushes TRT’s Full Mock Powerlifting Meet


Larry “Wheels” Williams is very forthcoming about his decision to stop using steroids and switch to Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). The powerlifter/strongman/influencer has been officially training with TRT for almost half a year now. In the process, he’s documented several steps in this powerful journey — perhaps most notably sharing a massive squat from November 2022 and his recent heaviest deadlift while in treatment to begin in 2023.

Wheels latest update from his entry into TRT and new life force shows the athlete running through a full mock powerlifting meet. The idea is to test where his current one-rep maxes stand in the powerlifting staples of the squat, deadlift, and bench press. On January 7, 2022, the athlete shared a video on his YouTube channel detailing that performance and his overall thought process.

Wheels does his bench press and deadlift completely raw, except for a lifting belt, and uses knee wraps for his squat. Here’s an overview of Wheels’ mock powerlifting performance:

Larry Wheels | Jan. 2023 Mock Powerlifting Meet Results

  • Squat (W/Wraps) — 330 kilograms (727.5 pounds)
  • Bench Press (Raw) — 230 kilograms (507.1 pounds)
  • Deadlift (Raw) — 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds)
  • Total (Raw W/Wraps) — 910 kilograms (2,006.2 pounds)

One of the other main reasons Wheels decided to hold this meeting was compare his top TRT lifts when he was on steroids and at a similar body weight. The athlete has higher personal records (PRs) for each of these lifts, but those are at heavier body weights.

When it came to Wheels’ TRT squat while using knee wraps, he actually lifted 1.1 kilograms (2.5 pounds) more than his previous squat with wraps PR from January 2014, per Open Powerlifting. According to Wheels in the video, regarding his bench press, his lift of 230 kilograms (507.1 pounds) is 30 kilograms (66.1 pounds) less than his top bench press of the same body weight while steroids. In the end, Wheels didn’t hide his displeasure with his deadlift of 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds), but in comparison, it held up well to his previous steroid-assisted PR of 374.7 kilograms (826 pounds) ( -also of relatively similar body weight) .

To close the meeting (and the video), Wheels reflected on how far he has come with TRT, this meeting, and after stopping his long-term steroid use. It looks like one of the biggest names in strength sports is enjoying how his new personal endeavor is unfolding.

“This prep has been very enlightening, seeing what I can do with TRT … I’m enjoying the process. I feel great. I think I’m better than ever. Skin, sleep, mood, everything is stable.”
