Amber Strongborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Deadlifts and Powerlifters, Swoleesi of the Convoy Strength, Breaker of PR's, and Mother of Dra-GAINS.

Oh hi there... Nice to meet you, my name is Amber

​​​Or for the majority of people know me as "Swoleesi"... aka the buff version of Khaleesi. You know that blonde girl who has 3 dragons from that one HBO show? 

Yep. People would stop me in the middle of the street to tell me I that I looked like her.. and I decided to own it.  Thats when "Swoleesi, Mother of Dra-Gains" came to life. I combined the bad ass mid-evil show with LIFTING. My Iron Throne will be made out of calibrated kilo plates and deadlift bars of my enimies. JK.

​​I'm an 56kg (126 # for you non-kilo readers) International Elite Powerlifter in the USPA and IPL, I have also competed in USAPL as well. For everyone asking "how much can you lift?"  My best numbers are SQUAT: 291 #, BENCH: 181 #, DEADLIFT: 407 #. 

Now, I wouldn't consider myself naturally strong. In fact when I first started lifting, I could only do 80# for squats... on a smith machine... for 2 reps.... I wasn't strong, but I was competitive. I played tons of sports in high school, including track, basketball, soccer, and volleyball. They helped carry me into powerlifting.I knew lifting would give me the best copition ever: myself.
