Got a PR this morning.

I’m not trying to be dramatic or anything, but this Sunday is probably going to be my most significant day of 2012.  The team is travelling to Redding this weekend where I will be coaching 8, COUNT ‘EM, EIGHT lifters through their lifts.  Then I’m going to try and qualify for the 105+ A session at the American open.  Yes, the most I’ve snatched in training lately is 135.  But I just decided that I should compete this week which has really forced me to get my head out of my ass and start PULLING so I don’t embarrass myself.  I also owe a lot to Alex “The General” Lee for pushing me past my comfort zone.

But like I said, I’m not trying to be dramatic.  I’m just really excited is all.


Do you see those bleachers being built on the platform in the background of the video.  That’s for the powerlifting meet that my gym/Team Supertraining is hosting this weekend. There are going to be some MONSTERS lifting.  I mean, goddamn.  There are some MONSTERS walking around my gym right now.  I saw a dude with 19 inch forearms.  NINETEEN INCHES of forearm.  I’m fairly certain that the meet will be livestreamed.  I’ll post a link tomorrow.

    congrats on the PR! I enjoy reading your blog. It’s pure motivation. I can’t wait to break my first PR! I’m going to compete in my first meet at the end of December and my coach’s programming hasn’t had me had the opportunity to break a PR yet. I can’t wait for the chance!
