Team Samson Powerlifting- Hangin’ with Mr. Googs. Squat 5/7


Adam Driggers is keeping his retirement casual by still out-lifting active lifters on occasion. Shane Ford is bouncing between work, life and training, trying to find a meet. Filipe Gusmao is gearing up for his first meet since surgery to repair a torn triceps.


The Guggisbergs came out this week. Lisa’s husband Todd is getting ready for the RPS Redemption meet along with Brian, Jason, and Filipe. Todd and Lisa have been around the team for a couple years now, and have always been more than willing to help out at the gym, and help out at meets, even if they are competing. Todd smashed a couple PRs this week and is set to have a good meet.


Todd Guggisberg

At three weeks out, it’s second attempt week for Todd. He hit 630 lbs, which moved very well, and took a reverse band set at around 650 lbs (no video). His 630 was a 10 lb all time PR. Things are looking good here for Todd. It’ll be exciting to see what he puts together in a couple weeks at the meet.


Shane Ford

Jon has me working in gear, once or twice a month, depending on how it falls out in my training cycle. Its been 7 months since I’ve put on any gear nd gotten to lifting heavy. I hit 670 lbs for 3 this week which I’ll call a triple PR. Things are coming together for me now, except my bench. Either way, I’m ready to find a meet!
