At Mass Cast, we have the pleasure of sponsoring the most powerful and dedicated weightlifters in the world! We would like you to meet this month’s athlete Hunter Howell. Born and raised in Petal, Mississippi Hunter does not mess around when it comes to weightlifting. HE IS PURE POWER. Follow Hunters’s weightlifting journey on Instagram.
Tell us about your background. Where are you from, where do you currently live, what’s your occupation (if you work in addition to training), family life, what kind of sports background do you have outside of lifting, etc.
I’m from Petal, MS and I currently live in Hattiesburg, MS. I’m attending the University of Southern Mississippi and will graduate this May with my degree in nursing.
Describe your weightlifting history. When/how did you start? Who have your coaches been?
I am very close to my parents and my dad taught me the basics of lifting when I was very young. I played baseball in high school as a pitcher, so I was never allowed to do a lot of lifting. Once I graduated, I began doing your typical “bro lifting”, which consisted of arms and chest. About 6 months ago, I began seriously training.
It was around this time that I squatted and deadlifted for the first time (lol). I train 7 days a week, and I split every muscle group onto its own day. I would like to break records in the junior division for the 198 class in the APF/SPF.
What are your plans and goals for your weightlifting career? How do you see your future in the sport? Do you plan to stay involved in weightlifting after your top competitive years are over?
My parents co-own a gym, and I plan to take their place in the partnership in the future.
