Quest for Ultimate Glory

Before we go any further, that was the name of the meet we were at and not a delusional expression of what I feel went down yesterday. Though, that said, Heather did put some solid foot to *ss winning the women’s Raw division (as the smallest of the 4 women in the division, and whole meet) by a bit of a landslide (thanks in part to the Wilks coefficient) and walking away with some sweet prizes including a “meat vacation”, or as they call it a “Haycation Farm Stay”, which consists of a 2 night stay in a cottage on an grass-fed ranch in Washington state. I pulled off 5/9 lifts over current PR’s and got to watch Mark Bell do his thing, which is enough to get me all fired up. Comments:

1. Bench with a “press” command at the bottom really changes the game (it appears to be a short pause when you’re watching, but feels like and eternity when you’re lifting)

2. I would like to know if there is any data behind the size of people and how friendly they are. Big guys, so awesome.
