Keeping Up With The Competition

Keeping Up With The Competition

Is the Competition Getting Tougher or Am I Just Getting Older?

I love competition. I used to run several races each year and I always ran them to get a PR. One summer, we participated in a Tough Mudder and I was blown away when I found out we weren’t being timed. WHAT?! Why am I doing this if I don’t know how I stack up against the competition?? Needless to say, I’ve calmed down a lot since then. I still love competition but I try to take a more practical approach to competing as I know this 40 year old […] Read more

(Lifting) Partners for Life!

So This Happened The Other Morning…

285 Squat Clean

I had the opportunity to take some videos during the power clean and squat clean build up last Friday morning. It was a busy class and despite the fact that it was 5:45 am, the guys were lifting heavy. Cory had just hit a very solid 265 squat clean and decided to give 275 a try. As you can see in the video, he didn’t land a solid squat. I’ve been there, done that too many times to count. When Cory fails to stand up, Brent’s quick thinking saves him from a potential […] Read more
