Maxime Boudreault has competed in the World’s Strongest Man and Shaw Classic. Samantha Belliveau has competed in Canada Strongwoman, Arnold Amateur Strongwoman Championship and Clash Strongman. Together, Max and Sam are probably the strongest couple in the world and they talk with the LOI crew about the ups and downs of training for strongman as a couple.
Max talks about his journey to taking 3rd place in 2021 Worlds Strongest Man. He gives us some insight into what was going on in his head and really breaks it down. Looking forward to the 2022 World’s Strongest Man, we talk about how he is training and prepping for it. Sam is known for breaking the women’s world record with 183.4lbs/83.1kg Dumbbell Overhead Press. She crushed it at the 2022 Clash on the Coast, which our own Nick Best witnessed as a judge.
Max and Sam talk advice for young lifters, how to balance training with life, the private gym they own and operate, what it’s like being a trainer, how they support each other in and out of the gym, and so much more. There is so much to cover, from the crazy way Sam and Max met, to how they are taking over the world’s strongman crop in Canada. In this episode of Legends of Iron, we learn what it means to be a true power couple!
