Team Samson Powerlifting: Friendly Competition

Week of July 23rd:

This week was a deload for mostly everyone in the gym. Clint did some board work in his bench shirt, while Mike assisted in working out Brian’s bench shirt. On Saturday we saw a little friendly competition in the gym amongst team members . We had guys pushing each other on deadlifts Saturday and it was a good thing to see. Here is what went down:

Clint Smith worked up to 660×3 off a 3-board, as he is getting back into the adjustment of lifting equipped. Saturday he worked up to 420 on squats (he has been battling a nagging knee injury) and then pulled 585×3 off blocks.

Dondell Blue also got in on the deadlift action and worked up to 585×1

Shane Ford worked deload on bench, as he went 225×5 pause bench. Saturday he worked up to 425x1x5 as he was working on speed out of the whole (bottom of squat) and then joined in on the deadlift fun as he hit 585×3 off the blocks.

Mike Holman worked up to 590×3 to a 3-board in Brian’s bench shirt Monday night. On Saturday during the friendly competition, he worked up to 585×1 off the blocks with no belt, which was by far a PR for him. He had previously only pulled 495 (belt less) two weeks prior.
