Big Lifts in LA.

August 18, 2016

I figuratively “hit some dingers” at my buddy, Jon’s meet in LA last weekend.  Snatches were OK. I hit 145kg on my 3rd.  But I went OFF on my clean and jerks.  3/3.  175kg, 180kg, 186kg for an all-time PR.  Footage shot by Rex Flores.  If you live in So-Cal and want some video work done by a pro, holler atchyer boi.

I haven’t done anything remotely creative in a while.  So here’s a video of some training taken this summer.  I fit a decent amount of the team on this one.  I also threw some noise on the background.  Overall I’m happy with how it came out.

Hard Times.

This tune by the Cro-Mags seemed appropriate to describe training lately. Remember, all the gains you get in the gym are not permanent. Everything in weightlifting is cyclical. Everything you get, you gotta give back and then work even harder to get that extra 1%. In any case, I’m glad to be back to moving how I’m used to moving.

Here’s a little video I made for my presentation at an NSCA clinic this weekend.

Wish me luck!

Here’s the video from the Philly trip.  Voiceover videos are so 2012.

In other news, I got my top 20 tracks of 2015 list down to 30.

2015 Wrap Up Video.

Who else listens to this album once every couple of months to feel all the feels?

I’m a lucky man.  The name, “Occam Athletics” came to me as I was taking Biomechanics in College.  I think this was in 2011 or 2012.  The idea became a dream and the dream became a reality.  I owe it all to my team, my gang of bloodthirsty pirates, my yamdancers. I love you guys.

Trust the process.

Here’s the second featuring the rest of us who competed this year.

AO 2015: Cameron and Zander.

December 14, 2015

I had to break up the video from the American Open into a few different parts.  This one is dedicated to Zander and Cameron.

This track is definitely one of my favorites of the year.  Check out the whole album.  Dope.
