Matt and Scott catch up with Tom Campitelli during the inaugural nationals meet for the US Strengthlifting Federation. The USSF is a new lifting federation hosting competitions in the squat, overhead press, and deadlift, with some notable rules deviations from traditional powerlifting meets. Tom talks about creating the USSF, his background as an early Starting Strength Coach and longtime staff member, and his many extracurricular pursuits, including photography, writing and performing for the hard rock band Crysknife, and competing in the Crossfit games.
