2006 Texas Strongest Man Competition at The Ronnie Coleman Classic in Dallas, Texas
 
 
"Needed to win this event by just 1 pound over Ben Graves one of the strongest men in America, but I needed overall points. I had tweaked my shoulder in the deadlift. Ben had just nailed 320 on his last pushpress attempt which put him in first place which was surprising that he did not do a lot more after winning the bench with a near 600 pound showing. I opened with 320. Blew my left shoulder out on the second attempt with around 370. So, all I needed was 321 on the 3rd to win since we were tied at this point. I figured I could get 340 with this injury and get some overall points. I work too hard to win at 321. I prayed, visualized the many times I had trained in pain, and then executed it with my old training partner Josh Bryant looking on. God was good to me. Being at the Ronnie Coleman Classic made it special and the Olympic lifters who congrtulated me at the end. A jerk step would have made it a lot easier they joked with me"----Coach Poe
 
 
 
"The actual "Strength For The Game" Demonstration at Cumberland Heights "2009 Clean Break" Event
 
 
 
"I felt great with the 300 pounds and Wade Johnson behind me. Repping this weight was not very hard, but effective for a demonstration. Again, demonstrations still count for experience and an opportunity to perfect technique in a crowded setting"...Coach Poe
 
 
 
"Coach Poe concentrates before repping 300 pounds with "Big" Wade Johnson as his spotter who opened the show with a "repfest" of 600 pounds on the trapbar. Richard Harris runs the show as the MC."
 
"Wade Johnson was awesome opening the show with the trapbar and talking to the crowd as he repped 600 pounds"....Coach Poe
 
"Whenever you can train for a designated period of time for a demonstration and execute all attempts on the event day, it becomes another opportunity for experience and another opportunity to perfect your technique in a crowded setting with other professionals in their trade such as the band TONIC and SISTER HAZEL"....Coach Poe
 
"There is nothing like the feeling of doing an event that comes together so successfully after a long period of training. It's opportunities like this that make it all worthwhile. Getting to share the stage with Matt Poe lifting and then listing to all the great bands and visiting with all the great folks was inspiring for me"....Champion Powerlifter and Instructor Wade Johnson
 
SPECIAL THANKS TO: Friends, family, website visitors, and clients who attended as well as Wade Johnson, Richard Harris, and Blake Harris. Congratulations to Asher Levine who directed the event on behalf of Cumberland Heights.

"I recently saw Matt Poe and was able to hear him in Boston last year. Being on the front page of the NEW YORK TIMES was long overdue. I have never heard anyone lecture on the biomechanics behind speed development as Matt Poe presents this science. He is quite a student and a showman."....Darrick Sencinello, PHD Biomechanics.

 

WARNING: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!

"This was my last exercise on a 21 set deadlift day using free weights. I ended with lifting my trailer. My lower back was shot. Lifting a trailer off the ground is a good exercise for increasing the time it takes to go from hip extension to hip flexion. This hip speed through this range of motion is the key to a great start in sprinting and a powerful transition into your flight stage"...Coach Poe

"I do benchpress once a month, but my pushpress keeps my bench relatively high. I did 2 sets with 405 of 8 reps and dropped down and did 20 sets with 315 with 45 secs rest in between and did 4-6 reps"....Coach Poe

ADVANCED INSTITUTE OF POWERLIFTING AND BODYBUILDING

SEMINAR A SUCCESS!!!!

 

Hey Matt! My name is Chris Lairsey, I watched you demonstrate the push press at the Advanced Institute of Powerlifitng and Bodybuilding. I just want to say that I believe in what you do because I am an athlete ans some of the courses and workouts I have heard about are not as good as the one you have. I just wanted to say thanks, YOU HAVE REALLY INSPIRED ME to do what I love to do and to always believe in myself to achieve my goals in life.THANK YOU.
 


 

Coach Poe reps 320 pounds with Masters World Champion "Hoss Man" Joe Majors as his spotter.
 
Below are a few spectator responses that have been submitted to mattpoe.com:
 

"Talk about POWER, Ed Coan, Matt Poe, and Wade Hooper looked unstopable. I would hate to have to compete against them. They are so focused, confident, and their techniques are perfect. I have never seen anyone press overhead as Matt Poe did.

 
 

Wade Hooper (167 pounds) reps 500 pounds RAW with Joe Majors as the head spotter.

 

He taught in one mood and then became a different person as he approached the bar. Then to top it off, Matt Poe lifted his knees up with the weight still in the air and marched with the (320 pounds) and was laughing and talking to the crowd as he did it...SCARY"--- Visitor of site ---Mark Senartio, Orlando, Florida. 
 

"I could not believe I was in the same room with the strongest man to ever live and the greatest POWER LIFTER OF ALL TIMES----ED COAN. He was so nice, but you could tell he owned the weights, especially when he was toying around with the deadlift. He is a true champ..."----Visitor of site---Cynthia Shaw----Atlanta, GA.

 

"Being a lighter lifter myself, seeing Wade Hooper was incredible. His form was perfect and his demonstration of a 500 squat and a 400 bench was done with such ease that I now know I have a chance to follow in his footsteps weighing 167 pounds---Visitor of site---Carter Jenson---Ohio

 

 "We met yesterday at the seminar in Atlanta.  I'm the guy that was wearing
the longsleeve gray shirt and asking too many questions.

I didn't say much during your pushpress demonstration, but just quietly
took some mental notes.

I tried out a few adjustments that you pointed out yesterday, especially
popping the hips forward as fast as possible.  I set a 30 lb PR in my
pushpress, and got more than my bodyweight overhead for the first time
ever.

I just wanted to drop you a note and say thanks."

Tribute To Chuck Braxton
 
Coach Poe always opens up with 500 plus to honor his former coach and great friend "Chuck The Truck Braxton"
 
"Matt Poe started speed training in the State of Tennessee. He is the only coach I know who has traveled in and out of the United States with the NFL, WWF, XFL, and Life and Sports in Mexico. Bricks and Mortor did not build Matt Poe. Matt Poe built Matt Poe and laid the "groundwork" for all others to make a living doing the same thing. He has always encouraged me and others to "strive to learn what speed really constitutes". I thank him on behalf of all of us in this business. Poe, you will always be the Doctor of Speed in my book and others, not to mention the most focused lifter I have ever been associated".---Tommy Corelli
