A Wolf Like Me (Midtown BB Feb 2015-April 2015).

April 18, 2015

My group has grown.  We are strong and happy to train together.  Every day is a privilege and sometimes I get so lost in keeping this thing going (and improving) that I forget that.

Here are a few clips taken over the last few months of training and contests.

My mind has changed
my body’s frame but god I like it
my hearts aflame
my body’s strained but god I like it

    Love seeing you guys train and compete.- As I watch this, I vicariously experience the fun- and the struggle- of olympic lifting, and the energy of a gym full of dedictated people.

    This kind of training has taken a back seat for me lately because I’m working on a second career in art, but my “shadow weightlifter” self eats these videos up. Thanks for posting, Ben.

      I’m truly glad that you enjoyed the video. It’s my intention to make stuff that I can look back on and re-watch, enjoy the fun we had and re-live a snapshot in time. It feels really honest. I’m sorry to hear about your training but by the sounds of it, you’re pursuing other passions. One day I will be that lucky. Cheers. And like Joseph Campbell said, “Follow your bliss.”
