Bakersfield resident KC Mitchell, also known as that1legmonster, is strong. Like, really strong.

In a USPA competition, Mitchell lifted 600 pounds, becoming the first amputee to compete in the men's open raw division.

Mitchell doesn't let his circumstances define him after losing his leg after an improvised explosive device blew up under his Hummer while serving in Afghanistan.
