I met the crew at my first meet in Vernon, BC last summer. I now train with them on weekends at a powerlifting/strongman facility close to my home.
Really impressed with your lifting form and attitude Dave. Really glad I subbed to your journal here.
Sidenote - man, they just keep building them stronger and stronger!
Very jealous you've got a home gym set up. My training partner and I often consider it, but we were never sure if either of us would be sticking around the current location for very long. I finally found out I'll be gone in September, and he probably won't be much longer. Anyway, so awesome you have that.
I'll agree. Once I started competing my training had a whole new drive and perspective. As well, getting up in front of crowds is a lot easier now that I've stood in front of one in a singlet :P It's also great for goal setting, etc.
Thanks dude, and likewise. Tremendous positive work going on in your log.
Fuck, it's just ridiculous. I can't even comprehend how one can be so strong at such a young age. I'm sure he's been at it for ages, anyway, but still.
