Mike Schwanke aka "Breaker" I have been in the military now for eleven years now, I had dual service time six being Army and four in the Air Force. I am currently a Satellite Systems Shift Supervisor and highly enjoy my job. Life for the last three years has been very fast paced for me and it seems that I am on the move. But I will admit it keeps things interesting and always presenting me with new interesting challenges. There are many things I enjoy in life, but top on my list is weight training / powerlifting. I truly appreciate the hell out of this sport and have meet and trained with some truly inspirational people. I have been extremely fortunate to have trained with many pro level lifters and also huge reason behind my own success. Currently I train at Tampa Barbell and it is by far the best barbell club I have trained with to date! We have a great group of guys there and they are all about promoting team success, not just individual! I also owe huge thanks to John Inzer of Inzer Advanced Designs and Alan Thomas of APT Pro Wrist Wraps for there support and faith in my abilities.
