There will be a LIVE broadcast of Collegiate Nationals this coming Saturday night at 7pm (Central time). There are about 21 competitors in my weight class- 94kg (207lbs). I expect to have my first lift at around 8pm (give or take). You might as well start it at 7pm and keep it up as y
To say I Am exhausted is an understatement (and that is an understatement). I am so tired and just run down I think I could sleep for 2 weeks straight. I couldn’t even front squat 180kgs today, and I couldn’t back squat 205kgs. I am so wrecked and tired from that meet on s
Previous to starting my journey that I am now on I wrote a little motto about how I wanted to approach this sport. I knew how hard and frustrating the sport was, but, I didn’t know it could be this frustrating. I have it hanging up in my room all the time, just so I can wake up
A lot of people ask me what different things I do for recovery… First, I really try to eat as clean and healthy as possible: Daily Diet/Supplement Intake: 8am: 6 egg omelette (only 2 whole eggs), 1c Orange Juice 9am: 1/4th Scoop NO-Shotgun, 1 Promax Protein Bar 9:45am: 1 Scoop

AKA the Arnold. We are 4 days out, and I had a GREAT training session today. I snatched up to 144kg (3kgs away from my PR)(317lbs), then, I clean and jerked up to 160kg(352lbs) for 2 singles very easily. Those are the best my cleans have felt in weeks. Then I front squatted up to 180k
