Idaho Falls Community Reentry Center Correctional Officer Hanna Packer recently took offender Jason Worthen to a local (Idaho Falls) powerlifting meet by long-time local sponsor, Snake River Powerlifting.

Jason finished 2nd in the Masters class, based on the Wilks scoring method. The Wilks method takes the coefficient from a particular lifter's bodyweight multiplied by the total volume lifted, whether a singular lift or the combined three lifts in this meet: bench press, deadlift and squat.

Jason is somewhat of a local lifting legend and has competed in this meet for years. He says training in the powerlifting disciplines are a vital component in keeping him balanced and away from alcohol.
