This is an articulate, impassioned speech by an accomplished boxer it's likely you don't recognize, and that's not her fault. The $40 million that Floyd Mayweather pulled for his last excellent fight set her off. She makes great points. It's a quick four minutes to expose yourself to a bastion of legitimate gender inequalit
Here's some mitt work with the great Bill Meartz. Third 3-minute round. I'm extremely fortunate that Bill gives me some of his time and attention.
Sitting at the feet of the USA Olympic weightlifting master, Tommy Kono. One of the most important things you must do to create your own success is assemble the right team to support your efforts. You are only as good as your learning. I am extremely fortunate and gratified to count some of the best
I finished the season in Northern California with two significant meets on consecutive weekends. I opened with my two highest lifts from one year ago and added five kilos to my total for 110KG, with a milestone 50KG snatch PR, and highest-ever C&J opener at my PR of 60KG. Technique inching ever upwards, being
For some reason, and all to my honor, Dave Hall of the awesome Mental Meatheads project turned his skilled interview antenna to me. So if you'd like to hear me prattle on about training, weightlifting, boxing, books and see my boy Tiger in his relaxed state, check it out on his webs
As the nature of activity on the Internet has changed, so has my usage. I have posted on this blog less and less, to the point that I have decided to officially suspend it indefinitely. Like a lot of other folks I know, most of my activity has gone into social media. I also plain old don't put as much stuff out on the Inter
Here are the lifts from state this year for POW. I did two meets in two days, but not by design; somehow I'd gotten the date wrong for state, and thought it was another week out. So in between clean and jerks at the Freak Show in Aberdeen, WA, on Sat., June 1, someone brought up that state for Oregon was tomorrow. I'd alrea

There is nothing so sureas feeling your own strength.There is nothing as thrillingas seeing strength grow -either your own orthat of one you love.Strength is overcoming obstacles.Defeating yourself before you begin -That is weakness.
The long-sought 60KG clean and jerk! First place in masters women! Competed alongside Jim Schmitz and Chip Conrad. Hung with Butch Curry and still more awesome Bodytribers. Hit the beach after and saw the Golden Gate bridge for the first time. A great experience all the way around!
It was a good meet.

It's been a while in coming, but I'm finally starting to get the hang of it!
Great experience at the Freak Show held April 28 at Aberdeen High School in Washington. Thanks to Mike Cook for guest coaching me the day of. I overnighted and found a great little seafood place on the bay - ate two Halibut dinners the night before. The meet was combination weightlifting and powerlifting - organized, well r
Read an article a while ago arguing that training on unstable surfaces (like Bosu stuff) denies training the procioceptors and fails to train the body for the real world of stable surfaces. Can anybody help me find info on this perspective?It makes sense. Whose upper body strength would you have more faith in -
Competed in the first-ever Olympic-style weightlifting meet held in tandem with an APA powerlifting meet at Elite Performance Center in Portland. The great news is, I hit a longtime goal of a competition snatch of 45KG. I've hit it in training from time to time, and not anytime recently, so to get it at the me
