NPC National Leve Competitor
My name is Matthew Schmidt, I'm from Michigan and I'm 30 years old. I did my first show when I was 21 while attending college at Western Michigan University. I won 1st in the light heavyweight class but didn't get the overall. I've done 3 shows after that and won my weight class and overall at all 3. In between my bodybuilding shows I've done some powerlifting. Always in the220lb weight class, I've won every powerlifting competition I've ever done, in using Worlds in Vegas in 2013. My best ranking was 5th in the country for the RAW 220's. I'm currently ranked as the number1 RAW powerlifter in Texas for the 220's. Powerlifting has definitely helped my bodybuilding career, and that's where my heart is at. I'm a Federal Officer for the Department of Homeland Security. I train every muscle group once a week, and muscles I want to work on I fit in twice a week.
