Elite #8 Hayward Blake
Updated: Apr 21
Hayward Blake Going all the way back to the garage days, Hayward Blake was part of the original Diablo Barbell competitive team. Hayward started with us when he was very young, 15 years old I believe.
After about a year and a half of training with us he achieved an open class elite with best lifts of 633 squat 507 bench press and 584 deadlift as a 165 lb competitor. His 507 bench at 165 was at the time an IPF Teenage World Record. At his peak his total was ranked 2nd Nationally (to Big Iron's Nick Hatch).
