TuffWraps Athlete - Julius Maddox

Born and raised in Owensboro, Kentucky. After living a life of breaking the law and running from responsibilityI found myself in a jail cell in 2012. I had a choice to serve my time or go to a Christ centered recovery program called Friends of Sinners. I chose option 2. God used that second option to transform a junkie into one of the strongest men on the planet. In the program’s dirt floor basement was a bench and that’s where the journey began.

Fast forward to 2018, I’m a husband, father, and follower of Christ by the grace of God who serves fulltime at the same place my lifting journey started, but now lifting up people who are in the same position I was in. On February 17, 2018 I benched 705 pounds becoming the 5th person in history to bench 700 and still pursuing the all time world record of 738.5 lbs. Coached my Josh Bryant.
