It would be easy to get bogged down by the numbers and statistics when one analyzes Gene Bell's career in powerlifting. After all, he has accumulated six IPF Open World Championships, one IPF World Masters Championship, one Worlds Games Championship and ten USPF Senior National Championships. He is the current IPF world record in the Mens Master I (40-49) 90 kilo bodyweight division for the squat, bench press and total. In addition, he is the current world record holder in the Mens Master I (40-49) 100 kilo bodyweight division for the squat. The USAPL American record squat and total in the 100 kilo division for Men's Masters I is also held by Gene Bell. He also currently holds the USPF squat record in the 82.5 kilo open class for both the squat and the total. The titles, the records and the trophies are only the surface representations of a man who was so very dominant in the sport for a great deal of time. When he is not competing, Gene stays very active in the sport as the state chair of North Dakota for the USAPL. Now, he is focusing his life on his family and his career in the Air Force. Gene plans on returning to the platform at the IPF World Masters Championships in October in South Africa. American Strength Legends is proud to present Gene Bell.
