Iron Sanctuary Group Lift 3/18/17 - Syracuse NY
« on: March 07, 2017, 09:14:38 PM »
We're looking to get together next weekend, Saturday 3/18 at Herc in Syracuse.

A little background:

Hercules Gym is owned by Rheta West, currently ranked #1 Female PL'er by Powerlifting watch.com. The gym has 3 or 4 monolifts, strongman stuff and all kinds of vintage equipment. It's a Mecca for strong people, particularly Women, on any given day you'll likely see a Woman benching 300 or a guy squatting 600 for reps.

John lifts there a couple times a week as it's pretty much in his backyard. I've been there a few times with John and itsagooday. FLEX and Lisa are coming down that day. John and Itsagooday will be with us. I'll be finishing a 4 week PL program and attempting some 1RM's before deload week prior to my peaking program for Spring Supremacy.

After we lift at 12 PM we'll likely get showered and rest up a bit, then have some steak and beers.

If this sounds like your kind of fun, come join us at Herc for some heavy assed lifting 5 weeks out from Spring Supremacy.

cash me on the platform, how bow dah?

Not sure if Lisa will be coming.  I hope so, but she's undecided.  Lots of work on her plate these days.

If any womenz are benching 300 whilst I am there I will be packing up my shit and heading home.   :-[

You'll be safe. Haven't seen a 300lb bench from any of the female athletes - yet.

4:42 one way... 316miles.

As much as I'd love to, it's a bit beyond my reach for a day trip.

Ahh I shouldn't have assumed she was coming, hope she can make it to experience Herc.

Well hopefully she can make it, I know I would be uncomfortable driving 3.5 hours then lifting then driving again.

I am machine.  I can do it.

I'd like her to come with me because:

1) I like lifting with her
2) I like hotel sex
3) YOU OWE ME A FEW BEERS.

:D
