Default Far from new, but new here.

My name is Adam Driggers and I'm recently retired from competitive powerlifting.
I'm 41 years old and have competed in geared lifting since 2000. Mostly multiply. My training now is exclusively raw, but still slants towards powerlifting.

I am the founder of Team Samson Powerlifting and own the facility where we train. Some of my training partners are Brian Carroll of Overkill and 10/20/Life, Clint Smith of Overkill, and Jonathon Byrd of Titan. But that's only a part of our group that includes about 10 regular members. All of which are actively competing. Well, besides me that is.

What I hope to showcase here is what my training looks like post competition and gear. I think I work harder now than I did before "retiring". Some of the guys wonder why I retired at all. My answer, "I'm just not interested in doing everything that is necessary to put it all together on the platform anymore". Most of them are convinced I will do it again. I guess you should never say never, but I have no plans or hidden desires to do so.

So if you're interested in seeing what a retired "pro-powerlifter" does in the gym, that's what I'll be posting.

Adam...welcome. I've been in this sport for three decades (mostly as a raw lifter) and I have followed you for years.
I have a lot of respect for your tenacity on the platform but more for the way you carried yourself in the PL community. It shows in your team as well.

You've just classed this joint up another notch. Glad you're here.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
