Good Fitness Reads of the Week: 1/11/2015

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

It was a really busy week with a ton of great fitness info.

I am so proud of my client, David. He achieved his lifetime goal this week. Hit a 405 deadlift. He’s 56 years old and he’s been after a four plate deadlift for 30 years. This week he smashed his goal and I couldn’t be happier for him!


 I had a big week deadlifting too. I hit 710, my last heavy pull getting ready for my meet on January, 24th.

Quick Squat Tip

This is a valuable tip you’re going to want to know BEFORE you compete. If you’re used to looking in a mirror when you squat, it’s going to be a shock when it’s suddenly not there. Don’t have the first time you squat without looking in a mirror be in a competition. This is unfortunately something a lot of lifters learn at their first meet. Be prepared. Squat facing away from the mirror, or cover it up.
