U.S. Army First Sergeant Michael “Hammer” Bordelon, 37, of Morgan City, Louisiana, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team), based out of Fort Lewis, Washington, died on May 10, 2005, from injuries sustained when a car bomb exploded near him in Mosul, Iraq on April 23, 2005.

He is survived by his wife Mila; children Mike Jr., Jacob, and Johanna; mother Dolores; and sister Doreen Scioneaux.

We posted a video back in January of Naim Suleymanoglu. Suleymanoglu is pound-for-pound, the strongest weightlifter ever. He’s 4’8″ tall and is the second man in the world to clean and jerk three times his body weight.

I saw the video below this week of Suleymanoglu’s training – He is a 64 kg (141 lbs) lifter, snatching 145 kg (319 lb.), jerking 180 kg (396 lb.) and front squatting 190 kg (418 lb.) for two reps, almost triple his body weight. AMAZING. Note how he moves his elbows up and in right before he descends in the front squat.

Rummy’s son, Eli, had fun on the rings and rope recently….looks like future CF7 Games competitor in the making!

    Three periods of work with two 90 second rests between.
