I do..

Bring a healthy thirst, the only beers better than post workout beers are post workout beers that someone else is paying for.

Just saw this on my FB, so thought I would share again. Me "squatting" John spotting and Itsagooday working the mono.



Think this is well within my grasp at this point. Would like to get a little closer to 400, but we'll see what's up in 10 days.

Would love to have a few more lifters there on the 18th!

As you all get this together, and the plan firms up, I'd call Rheta and give her a heads up.  See if she or one of her Monsters can give you a hand tweaking form and offering input.  She's really quite awesome and may likely show up there if she knows you're a group driving hours to train at Herc.

What's really interesting, is that the Rift between Herc and RPS is all in Gene's hands. Rheta still sends lifters to RPS meets, and goes to/competes in them as well.

I'm really wishing that I could make it up there to Train with you all.  It's getting real interesting!

There hasnt been a Saturday that there wasn't an event scheduled that I haven't seen Rheta there.

I don't think there is any hard feelings towards RPS on her end either. I don't blame her for wanting to do her own thing at her own gym. She has the venue and the following. I do suspect she doesn't like some things about RPS rules though. One of them being lifters being rushed to squat if wearing wraps ect. Just a hunch but she's made it clear that there is no time limits at meets she puts on and the reason was she doesn't want lifters to feel rushed - its all about them.

Also, there is a list of upcoming meets on the board when you walk in. No RPS meets on that board at all.

I'd like to to the June meet. Its drug free and on my home turf. She puts on a good meet too.

It just kinda sucks for me that my DL has stalled around 525.

I think you need time limits for the sake of the lifters following.

I remember some jackass at the Buffalo meet one year running down the time and even going over.  Sucks balls to be sitting there all wrapped up and waiting 2-3 minute for the previous lifter.  I wanted to punch him in the face.

I don't disagree. I think there is a middle ground she is looking for.

Just pulled 400 for the first time in over a year. Felt good bending a barbell again.

Don't worry I'd be doing the same thing.

Any chance you could tag along with me?

I'd like to to the June meet. Its drug free and on my home turf. She puts on a good meet too.

I may have to come out in June and cheer people on, just found out one or two people from my gym may be going to that meet.  No way I'd lift though, not with meets at the end of April and beginning of August.  I'm dumb, but I'm not that dumb   ;D

I also am reliably informed that Hercules just got a Bulldog squat bar in, which is similar to an Iron Wolfe.  Dibs.   8)

I beleive that will be a meet only bar. Didn't see it on the floor yesterday.

Crap.  Sounds like we'll need a volunteer to distract Rheta while the rest of us search the building.   ;D

So what is the plan for Saturday?

Who's coming and what lifts are we doing?

I need to plan some shit.

Also might be bringing a friend from The Iron Den.  He's competed with us before in Buffalo or Rochester or something.  Twice I think.  You might remember him. His name is Mike and he brought his daughter.

I'll be there. Squats of course. I'm running Canditos 6 week program with variant lifts instead of main lifts so I'll be able to play around w/ back squats.

You should plan on benching too. Get a chance to bench on benches your shoulders don't actually fall off of. Bet it helps.
