Although he didn’t play basketball for long, Marc “Spud” Bartley CEO and Owner of Spud, Inc. went on to be one of the world’s top powerlifters squatting 1,107 lbs., benching 744 lbs. and deadlifting 716 lbs. with an all-time best total of 2562 lbs. Training to lift such big numbers took a lot of weight and Spud noticed quickly that the gym straps they were using were not made with big guys in mind. He had some products made from heavy-duty nylon webbing, brought them to the gym and everyone loved them. He officially launched Spud, Inc. in 2006. The indestructible weightlifting strap line was a hit and took off quickly spreading to Strongman, CrossFit, the NFL, and even the ARMY. Now you can see top level Strongman competitors use Spud, Inc straps at the Arnold, Spud, Inc. in the CrossFit games and our straps are even used by the Army in their new physical preparedness test the ACFT (Army Combat Fitness Test). Spud, Inc. products are proudly engineered and manufactured in the USA with top quality tested components.
