After months of intense planning and a successful first event, Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp and Twitch Rivals threw a souped-up, in-studio powerlifting competition to continue what has become a long partnership between the two parties. If a picture is worth a thousand words, their power meet series is worth a million. Explore photos of the Twitch Rivals: loltyler1 Power Meet 2 below.
This past April, Tyler1 kicked off the new, non-gaming series on the streaming platform and found immediate success, more so than they ever expected. In that opening event, T1 put everything together and ran the show, partnering with Twitch Rivals but not utilizing their full suite of resources. After the event exploded, with broken Twitch records that pulled a huge audience to the rest of the participating fitness creators, Twitch Rivals dove straight in and took the reigns.
Thus, the Twitch Rivals: loltyler1 Power Meet 2 was born.
Twitch had around a 20-person crew or so in a large studio in LA where they built a custom gym, which included a giant TV, a desk for the hosts, a bunch of little spots for their many various sponsors and other supportive features. And their staff wasn’t just a bunch of camera operators and tech people, they also had a makeup crew, a spotter for Tyler1, a COVID-19 compliance officer and a bunch of extra help in the back just in case.
Below are several groupings of otherwise unpublished photos from the second power meet. All pictures were taken by Parkes Ousley of Upcomer.
