Tyler1 sets deadlift record during Twitch Rivals powerlifting
Twitch streamer Tyler "Tyler1" Steinkamp has proven that height doesn't matter when it comes to powerlifting.
With a mighty scream, Tyler1 lifted 550 pounds during Power Meet, a powerlifting competition organized through Twitch Rivals. This was a new deadlift record for the League of Legends personality, a great accomplishment for the event Tyler1 had organized himself. The chat went crazy after this impressive personal best, including viewers who don't usually tune in for Tyler1's gaming content.
The fitness competition gained Tyler1 a lot of new fans and respect.
Power Meet brings powerlifting to Twitch Rivals
Power Met was the first-ever powerlifting event on Twitch Rivals, featuring 10 content creators split into two squads of five. Other content creators that took part in the event included Tyler1's girlfriend Macaiyla, bodybuilder Jackson "Bajheera" Bliton, and fitness streamers Tom and Helen. The blend of gaming personalities with fitness influencers made for a fun event for a variety of communities.
The competition included squats, bench presses, and the deadlift.
While Tyler1 may be known for his wild and sometimes toxic League of Legends antics, he's also been making waves in the fitness community on Instagram. Before the competition, Tyler1 shared posts featuring a 405-pound squad and pench press, both at sets of 10.
"I was bullied a lot in middle school. I was really small. I told myself, 'It's not happening in high school.' So I started lifting hard for football," Tyler1 recalled. "It makes you feel better about yourself."
The competition was inspiring for many of its viewers who enjoyed seeing all of the influencers reach their personal bests. A lot of viewers said that it had inspired them to "hit the gym." Others joked that Tyler1 is "built different" thanks to his height and head shape. The competition reflected a positive and supportive environment. Given it's success, there will most likely be more fitness competitions on Twitch Rivals in the future.
