Samantha Turnbull – Switching from Cheerleading To Weightlifting

by Kilo on January 4, 2011

Too awesome. 115 lb Samantha Turnbull was a cheerleader who decided to make the change to weightlifting. At the time of this video in 1007 she could clean and jerk almost twice her body weight. For me that would be nearly 525 pounds. That’s no joke.

That’s very cool. Anyone who can put bodyweight plus over their head is pretty tough. Good for Samantha, switching to a much less dangerous sport (I’ve heard that cheerleading has the highest injury rate of any school activity).

Patrick, I’ve got my Vulcan Gripper at the library. You need to come up and see it.
