    Had a super good time today at the TSC at the Iron Strength Kettlebell Gym in Sugar Land, Texas. It was my first time competing in anything and I had a really fun time. It was great seeing a lot of folks lift heavy and smart and more than a few PRs were set today. Thanks to SF for setting it up, Angie Jameson and Eric Grimsley (both high quality trainers btw in case anyone is in the market ;) ) for hosting and to everyone who came and competed. Looking forward to seeing the results!

    Great job! So do you intend on taking some time off to recuperate or continuing to train as usual?

    Thanks Carl. I tore my calluses pretty good so I will be taking some time off from anything involving those ;) Probably some light running, maybe bw stuff this week while planning out how to maintain my snatch gains (thanks to Eric my RHR and endurance improved a lot and I'd like to maintain this as a new baseline) while pushing that deadlift over 500. Now that I have one competition over my belt I feel a lot more confident so I may even sign up for October just to have something on the calendar without necessarily trying to push the numbers up too much.

    I participated at TNT Performance in Brookfield, WI. It was a great experience with about 30 people entered. I think I did well for my first time, entered in the Masters division. @Ryan Toshner ran a great event, and thanks to his brother Derek for his coaching which made my snatch score much better than a few weeks ago (but I still have a ways to go!).

    Leader board is up but not all scores entered:

    Now for some relaxed ‘push’ training before focusing on the fall event.

    Good meeting you at the TSC Phil. Agree that Iron Strength is a quality outfit.
