First off today, a little love for RANDY ATKINSON.
Big Boy Randy PR’d his snatch this morning at 205#. For those of you who don’t know, this is a 40# jump from where he started 4 months ago. 40# in 4 months. Do the math, I’ll wait. Yes, that means he has put an average of 10# per month on his snatch.
This is nothing short of amazing, considering the mobility issues that he had (and still has) in his shoulders. But he works on it day after day. Day after day. Practice, hard work, determination, patience and coachability. That’s it. Congrats, Randy.
Second — this weekend I had the opportunity to be a part of the WL camp at CF Deep in D-TOWN, TX. Excellent coaching staff, excellent facility, excellent seminar and excellent athletes. I really can’t tell you how awesome it was to be able to focus on two lifts for an entire weekend: break them down, practice each component and then put it all back together. The more I learn the more I know I have a lot more to learn.
Big thanks to Toge for letting us crash at your place (again!) and of course big thanks to Spencer for inviting Ingrid and me to be a part of such a world-class seminar. See you guys and gals soon.
