Congratulations Forge Powerlifting Team Posted on August 6th, 2017 in Powerlifting , fitness by Rick Congratulations to the members of the Forge Fitness powerlifting team that competed today at the Michigan Summer Iron Bash! Chalyn Marshall took first in the Woman's Junior Overall Class and broke four state records in the Woman's Junior 148 Class. Richard M. Greenman took first in Men's 275 Open, first in Men's 275 Veteran, Best Male Overall Lifter and broke one national veteran's record. Cody Finney took first place in the Men's Team Overall and set three state records in the Men's Team (age group 16-17) 275 Class. These three did phenomenal today and should be extremely proud of themselves. It should be noted that Chalyn and Cody are first time competitors with less than one month of formal training and still managed to break records. If you've been considering competing but are apprehensive about signing up, just take a leap of faith and register for a meet. You won't regret it!
