Ernie Beath – The Patriotic Highlander

by Al Myers

Ernie Beath and his 201# record in the French Press at the 2010 USAWA Club Challenge at the Ambridge VFW BBC. This lift was performed in front of several seasoned officials, one of which is John McKean located to the right in the picture.

I really enjoy watching YouTube Videos of weightlifting.  Some are quite entertaining, some clearly show how you shouldn’t lift weights, but occasionally you will find one that demonstrates a strong lifter that KNOWS how to lift weights. I especially like to follow YouTube Videos of lifter’s I know – and one of my favorites  is by USAWA member Ernie Beath.  Ernie is ALWAYS putting up big weights in some kind of lift.  Last spring I got to witness first hand at the USAWA Club Challenge Big Ernie setting the best French Press of All-Time in the USAWA with a lift of 201 pounds.  Well, in one of his latest videos he is hitting a French Press with 230 pounds!  His YouTube Account is called the PatrioticHighlander – or just check out his amazing videos by clicking here:  PatrioticHighlander
