The Midtown Classic.

June 13, 2012

This weekend we’ll be hosting a weightlifting meet at my home gym, Midtown Strength and Conditioning.  On top of that, it will be my first meet coaching 5 lifters.  I won’t be lifting.  As much as I would love to lift in front of a home crowd at my home gym, it’s much better to set one’s self up for success rather than failure.  Coaching 5 lifters and then lifting myself would NOT be setting myself up for success.

Luckily, I’ll have some help.  I taught Sarah and CC how to count attempts and help warm up other lifters.  Eventually, I’d like to have all my lifters be able to do that for each other (because it would make my life a lot easier and I plan on getting more lifters).  Anyways, I’m really happy with how all my lifters are progressing and it should be a fun meet.

Here’s some footage of some recent PR’s in training.

At this point, I’ve got 7 total lifters.  Realistically, I could handle 2 or 3 more and still be able to focus on my training as well.  Want to be on my team?

    If you’re accepting PL’ers who can’t Oly lift to save their life, I’m totally in.

    Man, if only I lived in California, Ben… I’d jump all over this.

    I don’t have a coach either. But now I live 20 minutes from the MDUSA training center, might have to visit.
