I reenacted this scene from Predator tonight (with chalk) as I worked my way up doing cleans off the low blocks. I went for a PR double at 173.
Billy died during this scene. I didn’t do much better.

I made a PR double today. Jason and I got a little bit competitive and it paid off for both of us. He made 115 for a double. I made 135 (PR) and then went for 140. I made the first rep easy but my back immediately didn’t feel all that great so I backed off. Hey, I got the PR and lived to lift another day so I’m stoked.
Speaking of competitive, I’ve been feeling SUPER competitive lately which has been working real well. It’s given me a new passion for training which has resulted in progress. More progress to come, I guarantee it.
And now for some fun.
I decided to treat myself to a fun little hike this weekend. I hardly ever get out and whenever I get any decent amount of time to myself, I like to spend it by myself. The hike itself was pretty easy. It took me forever because I was basically “cupcaking” my way down the trail. And honestly, I enjoyed taking my sweet ass time and taking in the scenery. For you people who are in good shape, you would probably laugh at the ease of the hike. I’d rate it as a 3/10 for a big guy like me, but literally a toddler could complete it.
Metalheads, enjoy the tunes. Everyone else, deal with it.

So I’ve got all our footage from Nationals and I’m going to post a compilation of all our best lifts. But first, a silly teaser.
For the LOLZ.

If you greet me this way, I will instantly know how to respond. It’s been ingrained in my psyche since I was twelve.

Cam got a PR snatch last night.

So I got some flak today about how I said muscle-ups are easy. I’ve been doing muscle-ups on a bar since like 2006. I hit my first one from the rings in like 2008. I’m no expert in functional fitness, but here’s how you do them:
1) Get good at pull-ups.
2) Pull-up really hard.
3) Push yourself the rest of the way up.
Here’s a video from a while back when I was sporting a mini-mullet where I hit a set of muscle-ups and then garishly pretend like they’re really easy.
I think I was around 250lbs in this video.

Here is the final cut of the bro film of the century brought to you by me and Kevin. In case you didn’t know, we are friends.

Santa stopped by for our Friday night heavy session last week. Apparently, it’s pretty common to practice the lifts in the North Pole.
Happy Holidays, everybody. Thanks for reading and be safe this New Year’s Eve.

A few days ago, Jared Enderton, 94kg. lifter and overall really cool dude unveiled what could become the most functional barbell complex known to man. The athleticism, determination and work capacity needed to successfully complete this exercise are at near super-human levels. Watch and be amazed.
Are you awestruck?
But wait, a new challenger wishes to conquer the Enderton complex and in the process set a new world record of 41kg. Watch and be motivated.
Count your blessings because you are witnessing next-level human adaptation so extreme that I would only be more impressed if I saw a lifter sprout a new pair of wings and fly to his next weightlifting contest.
