Congratulations to the Orlando Barbell Team!

On July 27th we had four of the Orlando Barbell Team Compete in the RPS Showdown at CTX. I covered Meana in my last post, but we also had Allie Baron, April Harper, Natalie Falbo, and Jon Burnham who competed.

Allie Baron benched 154 and deadlifted 281 in the push/pull division in only her second meet (she plans to squat in her next meet).

April Harper accomplished something that very few lifters would be able to. The weekend prior to the Powerlifting meet she competed in the Florida State Olympic Weightlifting Meet where she snatched 80 kgs and clean and jerked a PR 94 kg then only a week later at the RPS Showdown Powerlifting Meet at CTX she squatted 374, benched 176, and deadlifted 402 for a 952 total. April has primarily been training for Olympic lifting (so we’ll say she was still following my Minimalist Method LOL).
