ROSS

#LETROSSSHINE

Let's get started with Featured Everyday Lifter: Ross. 

The hashtag #LETROSSSHINE has been a hashtag I've seen many times used on Instagram.  I was often left with the question of: Who is Ross? and why are people wearing shirts with his face on it?

Up until recently, I knew very little about Ross.  When I first started at New York Weightlifting Academy, Ross would occasionally drop in, to work on some things.   He would enter the gym very much the same way; a subtle hi, a big hug for his coach and a well kept beard.  Folks from the "Carpet Days" loved it when he dropped in.  

As time went on, I found that Ross was spending more time training with Danny and calling NYWA his home. But I still was left with the question of: Who is Ross?

When I posted the idea behind The Featured Everyday Lifters' Project, Ross jumped on the opportunity to be featured.  I thought, "Yes, I get to touch his beard and ask him all about his shirts." (Yes, I know, this falls into the category of giving Max Lang a piggy back ride.)  

Check out the interview below to learn more about how a Super Cleary Photo, a collaboration with AfroBrutality and good friends,  helped create the idea behind 3 lines of shirts and #LETROSSSHINE.  

Soon after the interview, make sure to see Ross' PR of *107 kilos (CORRECTION NOT 170kilos)  in the Clean and Jerk while training.  Hope to see him in Savannah Georgia, for the 2017 National Masters.

So... Who is Ross?  

A proud father, a gentleman, a weightlifter, a July Baby, a hard worker, and a Brotha Next Door With a Dope Ass Beard.  

Enjoy!

That beard though.  

That beard though.  

That one and only time you ask someone to take a picture of you and your shirt is a hot mess. #vivstuff  Here is Ross and I smiling.
