Who is attending this year? Chris is usually a pretty easy face to find near any PL related booths. I know Brad Gillingham will be there at the GNC booth and I believe he will be deadlifting at the USAPL event. I certainly miss the days of the WPO as it was so much fun to watch but this year looks like there will be some great events to watch as well! For those that have never attended it is something that you have to experience as it cannot be put into words, pure craziness! It is by far my most IMPORTANT AND FUN show of the year!

I am going because the Omega Force Christian Team plan to do another strength event just like last year at the Arnold. Also, I'm looking forward to watching the bench press event and doing the bench press rep at the animal cage again.

And in case any of you weren't aware, our own Sgt. Rock will be in the Cage on Sat. 3/7. Look for some real mind and bar bending pulls!
Great lifting to all at the Arnold.

lol, the rumors are true. I look forward to actually getting to lift this year, instead of being a handoff guy/spotter. What time are you lifting on sat? I want to be sure to make it!

Nick, I am unsure at this time. Official schedule to be out next week as far as I know. I am guessing between noon and two pm on Sat but will post it here so everyone knows. I think Byrdman will be lifting on Sat.

Yeah, recovery is going well. I took a long time off of benching heavy and started focusing on training for a strongman comp. I have been back to benching heavy for about a month now and have been smoking some good weights. If you show up on friday be sure to stop by the animal cage around 12:30, I will be doing some deadlifts (don't expect a Sgt. Rock type performance, I am a bench specialist after all, lol).
