Larry Wheels, the Fitness King - Know All about His Workout Programs and Astonishing Physique
Larry Williams, aka. Larry Wheels’ towering physique alone is enough to grab anyone’s attention. With his buffed body, he has earned millions of followers on social media, making him a social media sensation.
The powerlifter expressed that the beginning of fitness in his life was merely a pass time and a self-defense mechanism against bullying. Gradually, fitness turned into a lifestyle, and now he is aiming towards achieving more.
Wheels' Humble Beginnings
The story behind Wheels' transformation is quite impressive. The muscle king once mentioned that he was an unbearably skinny kid. The only son to a single mother, he was moved from one temporary home to another before ultimately reuniting with his mother on the island of St. Martin.
His low-income family background limited his options to enroll in a school, and he had to find company amongst the island natives. However, the kids there were less than kind to him, and so to deal with the problems, he began exercising with homemade weights and focused on fitness, which then turned it into a habit.
When he finally moved back to New York with his mother, he swapped out his homemade barbells for iron weights at the gym, and the rest, as they say, is history.
