He was once considered to be one of the hottest prospects in the world of bodybuilding and now he is slowly showing up his talent. His very first title was the Strongman Summermania in Southampton in 2017. “The Dragon” as he is fondly called was bought up in Latvia before he finally moved to the US.

In 2015, he stood first in the All American Strength Classic and 2017 he got the fourth place in the World’s strongest men finale.

IM BACK FOR COACHING! Conquering isn’t easy! It consumes and tunnels my focus! To lead up to my dream show, The Arnold, I essentially stopped all coaching and only focused on my own lifting and body. It paid off, I took second in The World, and am hungrier than ever for first. 🍊 Until the end of the Month, I am accepting new online coaching clients at a rate of $300/program. This is very personalized work; I’ll have you sending me videos of your main lifts to be critiqued, and every training day will be tailored towards a specific contest or goal. After the 1st of April, my rates will go up, as I won’t be able to handle many more people leading up to Worlds Strongest Man. 🍊 After Arnold’s, I’ve been blessed with a flood of messages of support from new and old fans, and I love you guys for it! Frankly, It’s still hard to comprehend. Literally thousands of messages are pouring in and I don’t want my training clients to get lost in the crowd. So message me on my coaching exclusive page @martins.traininghall If you’ve already inquired for training, and I haven’t responded, please resubmit to the coaching Instagram account so I’ll more easily find you! 🍊 I am only taking on a few more people so if you’re serious about getting stronger, let’s do this. 😉 Looking forward to finding new athletes to make into legends! 🍊 @sbdapparel @sbd.usa @probodycoach @oddhaugen @romarkweiss @lindseybowenn #sbdusa #sbdapparel #nathanPayton #strongman #PersonalTraining #Coaching #onlineCoaching #StrongmanCoach #Conquer #BeALegend #MARTINS

Now, this life doesn’t sound easy and is extremely difficult in itself. But Licis has been doing this actually to rehab his spine. He quickly figured that he is pretty good at it and thus he started doing it more. At the Rogue Invitational in Columbus Ohio he surpassed the old record of 254 Kg.

NEW WORLD RECORD – 565lb (257kg)! – I originally started to use the Steinborn Rockover squat as a physical therapy exercise to rehabilitate my spine. It worked so well for me that now I’m setting World Records with it. (Please do not take that seriously. Do not use this to rehabilitate anything). HUGE THANK YOU to @drjantodd @steve_slater_ @caityhenniger @billhenniger for making this possible! Always a HUGE pleasure working alongside @roguefitness , and leading the way in Strength! Huge thank you to @lindseybowenn and @romarkweiss for supporting and videoing as always! Huge thank you to @sbd.usa @sbdapparel for supporting my joints! Huge thank you to @probodycoach for your nutritional guidance! And huge thank you to so many others for your support and belief in me. @thetraininghall @oddhaugen @dotfit #sbdusa #SBDapparel #Strongman #Steinborn #Squat #Legs @rogueinvitational #Crossfit @crossfit #WorldRecord #BeALegend #MARTINS
