02 Jul Team Samson Powerlifting: Focused
Week of June 25th:
Another scorching hot week here in FL means everyone is focused in the gym because we want to get out as soon as possible. Here is what went down this week (videos added to the bottom of the post).
Brian Carroll is slowly ramping things up for the WPO that is fast approaching in November. Brian worked on the Camberde bar for squats and then did some pulls off of blocks.
Clint Smith put on a bench shirt and worked on loosening up the shirt. Took a solid 590lbs down to a 3 board. Clint has had a nagging knee issue, so he took it light on squats this week. Hopefully he can start ramping things up on squat here soon.
Dondell Blue took 460lb down to a 2 board this week as he works on some weak points on his bench.
Filipe Gusmao went heavy on Squats this week and grinded out a nice 585lb squat.
Shane Ford was on deload this week.
Mike Holman worked up to 410lbs to a 3 board on bench and worked on hip mobility with box squats.
No Quote of the week this week, but we do want to mention how important it is for every team to have good camaraderie. This past Saturday the team met up before we trained for breakfast and it was good time to get together, chat and build some trust within the team.
Happy 4th of July, everyone. If you have not done so yet, be sure to head over to powerrackstrength.com to grab your “USA Collection” Tank/Tee/Racerback shirt for the 4th festivities! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
