Hey guys. Sorry I haven't posted on here in ages. Some moderator, eh? I haven't been on my computer as much and when I have I just haven't made the time. I'm back to hopefully answer some questions and I'll start up a new journal.

PS- not sure if he's posted here recently, but the guy up in the banner for Atlarge Nutrition(Phil) has just started training with my team so I got to squat with him last Saturday. He's strong as an ox and very explosive. This Saturday I am going to try out his squat routine for the first time. He says he can get me up over 650 by my next meet. I can't wait.

That rules that he's working with the Bent Bar Crew! You must be stoked. How's everything going? Life treating you alright? Training progressing as usual?

I can't complain. Things have been very good as of late.

He's training with Team Taylor. ;)

Phil is a good guy and full of energy! He should be a good training partner.

Hey guys, I am Shawna Mendelson. I am new to this forum, I train at Iron Island Gym in Long Island NY. Phil Harrington has been up here the last few weeks, and has been helping me with my training for my squat and deadlift. I am getting ready to do the APF Senior Nationals in a week!! I can't wait!! I also want to mention that if you have not tried the AtLarge Nutrition Nitrean Protein Powder, you are missing out. The vanilla tastes awesome, and it is a great source of protein with only 2 grams of carbs!!! It is a must have in your diet. Talk to you all again soon!!

Good to see you back around CR! Shawna, I have watched some of your videos from the Team Taylor website and all I can say is WOW! And now that you're both training with Phil ... crazy! I'm looking forward to seeing the new numbers. Be sure to take videos!

I got the chance to speak to Shawna on the phone last night and she seems like a very nice woman. She has some pretty amazing lifts to her credit, especially when you consider she has only been training for 2 years. For anyone who doesn't know, she is Scott Mendelson's (the record breaking bench presser) sister. Evidently they picked the right parents for size and strength genes :thumbup: .

Nice to have you posting here Shawna, and good to have you get your butt back on computer Phil. :whazzup:
