Power Profile!

Your United States Strongman, Inc. has a new feature called Power Profile. We will be featuring State Reps, promoters and athletes stories in their own words.

Cody Russell

My name is Cody Russell and I am the United States Strongman, Inc. State Representative for Louisiana. I have competed in strongman for 3 years, hosted strongman clinics and promoted a contest in Louisiana. I started lifting 6 years ago, after a 10 year bull riding career. When I started I was 165 pounds, now at 6’5”, I am 300 pounds.

I train out of God's Powerhouse Gym in Oak Grove, Louisiana and I am sponsored by Max Muscle Sports Nutrition! When I travel for work, I get the chance to train all over the country.

I have a strong passion for strongman and training and I’m always here to help anyone get started. My goal is to bring great contests to the state of Louisiana.

So get under the bar, get your diet straight and get ready!
