    Yes, chucks next time. I started off trying to pull in my deadlift slippers, but the slippers were rolling because of the pressure on the sides of my feet.

    USAPL and USPA. Both enforce the rules, have good competition and have a raw option. Between the two, there are plenty of meets in California, where I live.

    Why do people see these as attacks (in the pejorative sense)? I don't read them that way. Was Louie Simmons "attacking" the progressive overload system when he wrote the following or was he just...

    This happened to my flight of lifters at a 2009 meet in Vegas. Very frustrating. In my case, the judges in question were European.

    This is an interesting thought. My run with Sheiko resulted in an 15 pound total pr. It was a lot of work for a 15 lb pr. The older I get, the more I believe I need to find ways to get more out of...

    I did a meet once where my session started at 7:00 or 7:30. I'd weighed in that morning, so I ate a huge breakfast (pancakes, bacon, eggs, hash browns, etc.) a moderate lunch and then started...

    Are you talking about the one-flight meets that have only a very short break between squats and benches? Both times I went to USAPL Nationals this was the case -- the whole meet was done in 2.5 to 3...
