Team Samson Powerlifting – Oct. 28,30, 2017

The team is cruising along in offseason. Everyone is putting in solid work using 10/20/Life principles. Felipe is healthy and squatting pain free, Jason is back and starting his offseason program. Shane and Stan are planning on competing in mid-February, Jason may do this meet as well.

There were two groups on Saturday. One group (Adam, Jason, Stan, Shane, Felipe) used the buffalo bar for various reps schemes, while the others (Brian, Clint, Nick) used the safety squat bar for singles. 4″ block pulls followed for most. Assistance work has been consistent for most of the team. Belt squats were done along with various carries and stir the pot to finish. Nick was welcomed to the team by having the opportunity to buy us all lunch. Actually a pretty nice little Saturday.

Monday saw Clint, Brian and Nick work floor press singles, without the added element of rain this week. Everyone else worked conventional bench press. Assistance work included close grip press with the shoulder saver pad, chain tricep extensions with the grenades and various other chest and tricep movements.

The atmosphere in the gym has been great with a lot of energy for a period where no one is prepping for a meet.
