What to expect on Little People, Big World Episode 2
Episode 2 of Little People, Big World will air on Tuesday on TLC. The official synopsis of the upcoming episode, True Bromance, reads:
“Amy and Chris invite Matt and Caryn to dinner; Caryn buys Matt a new contraption to help recharge their relationship; as Zach prepares to break a powerlifting record, injuries and weight issues threaten his goal.”
In the episode, the 32-years-old father of three kids embarks on an ambitious weightlifting task in the Hardcore Barbell Weightlifting Competition. In the competition, Zach will be attempting to squat a 385 lbs and three power lifts - a back squat, bench press, and a deadlift.
He will perform the lifts in front of three judges, and two of the three judges must approve the lift with two white lights to succeed in his mission. In the preview, he says,
“If I lift it, I’ve beaten the record by four lbs.”
His hard work paid off as he succeeded in breaking the national weightlifting record with his wife Tori Roloff, daughter Lilah and son Jackson, who was present at the competition to boost his morale.
Looking at Zach’s impressive feat, Amy Roloff’s husband, Chris Marek, said in the clip:
“It’s impressive to watch anyone to lift that much weight. Also to see someone Zach’s size. It’s even much more impressive. That’s gotta be sending a good message to Jackson, that size doesn’t matter. And Zach is leading a great example.”
Even Zack was overjoyed with his feat despite thinking, “This is heavy,” while performing a back squat. After accomplishing his mission, Zack said:
"I was pretty stoked. This is the end of a really long journey of working out and getting to this moment. I was really excited!"
