Danny Bellmore – More Rehab and a Cool Story

I just completed the 2017 APF Senior Nationals. With just a small set back the meet went fairly well. I finished with a win in the Masters and the Open. I will be going into a long off season with nothing planned as far as meets go.

Captain Jacked provides the best in supplementation.


First and foremost I want to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

I have been active in rehabbing my lower back. Along with following Dr. McGill’s protocol I also have been experimenting with different sleeping positions. The majority of my back pain comes lying in bed. The time I spend in bed I have very little to no back pain, it’s the waking up and loading my spine where things get pretty intense. At this point I am ready to try pretty damn near anything for relief. I recently made a visit to Empower Chiropractic and Acupuncture to do some acupuncture with e-stim. I will say the next few days the pain level has dropped considerably with the treatment from Lauren Dyer. I will be making plans to get over there once a week for a long as I keep benefiting.

As far as training goes all I am doing at this point is mobility work along with walking on the treadmill just trying to loosen everything up.


I have a quick little story about a car I have wanted for about 15 years. I used to do business at a local speed shop and the owner (Brian Bachelder) used to be a pretty damn good drag racer. Brian always had this picture of a pretty cool Ed Hamburger prepared Dodge Demon that he once drove. Brian had sold the car and I pestered the hell out of him because I wanted the car. The answer was always the same, the guy will never sell the car. Brian stated that the guy wouldn’t sell the car back to him, so he doubted he would to me. Over the years I had always asked about the car with the same answer Dave wont part with it. Well I was at the local hot rod shop last week while talking to some good friends the car was brought up again and I stated I gave up asking about it. A few hours after I had returned home I received a phone call the car was for sale. After a few discussions with the current owner who has had the car about 30 years we struck a deal and I can proudly say I now own the car. This car has tons of history and is pretty much a time capsule. I can say I can’t wait to take it to the track and race it.

Here at PRS it’s all Inzer all the time.

Danny Bellmore

Danny has been involved in powerlifting since 1994. The first swing at a career was short lived due to a major back injury in 1999 that resulted in a 3-level spinal (lumbar) fusion. At that point, he took a 10-year break. Avoiding the gym all together because his body, and back, just never felt right. In 2010, Danny went to handle a good friend at a local meet. That experience re-ignited the fire within and he was back under the bar, never looking back. Danny established an elite total at my first meet back in 2010 and then accomplished a win at the 2012 APF Masters Nationals. Through his win at the APF Masters, he was training using the Conjugate Method, but he wanted a change. He needed a change. Danny reached out to a friend who stated that Brian and the Samson Barbell crew had it going on. In the process of connecting with Brian, he has endured a few setbacks. During our initial discussions, he had torn my rotator cuff and labrum, along with a separated AC joint. The surgery did not "take" and just nine months later, he was back under the knife for a "do-over." During the healing process, he had lost feeling and strength in my right arm. Being pig headed, he waited and waited. My choice to remain stubborn backfired, and I was back in the OR for another spinal (cervical) fusion. Now healed, and a few years under Brian, Danny’s total has moved to 1871 @ 165. He doesn’t like to predict or talk about goals, but he wants more, and feels like he has more. Plans now are to compete at the Senior Nationals in Jacksonville, Florida this June.
