It’s been an eventful year for Larry “Wheels” Williams. Amidst various training updates and tidbits, the athlete disclosed he would stop using steroids indefinitely in a late-August 2022 video on his YouTube channel. After openly leaning on some measure of performance enhancing drugs for years, his rationale for stopping was that he wanted to see how his performance would fare without such assistance. As a substitute, because Wheels’ body no longer naturally produced testosterone, he went on Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). His ongoing experiment on that front seems to be going swimmingly so far.
On Nov. 28, 2022, Wheels shared an Instagram video of himself capturing a 305-kilogram (672.4-pound) raw back squat while on TRT. Per the caption of his post, Wheels’ intention was to garner as many reps as possible (AMRAP) with the weight. While it appeared like he may have been able to lock out another rep, Wheels stopped squatting after six reps, suggesting that was his AMRAP with the massively loaded barbell. The athlete wore a lifting belt and knee wraps, and completed the set in his socks.
