    Great job.
    the Relentless meets are always amazing. I had a tough time with the monolift at this one and only got my opener 930 squat, but PR-ed on everything else. Nothing beats the energy at those...

    It happens with tight wraps sometimes....

    My overkill wraps just leave cuts and scabs, but a teammate still has a bruise to mid-thigh from getting wrapped super tight at Relentless last week....

    My wife benches around 140 raw, usually puts her shirt on at 185 and opens in the low 200 range.

    Good to hear this come back around. Coming in to this sport with the Frantz team the old-time wisdom was to only have the mobility you need to perform.

    A few days before a heavy squat day we'd...

    Agreed. Just get the weight on the bar close to what you need and smash it. I can't feel the difference between 1000 and 1001 on the bar and what marginal improvement I might get from moving the...

    I was lucky to have started with the Frantz crew back in 2007.
    Now I'm lifting with the Overkill crew and making trips out to the MECCA to push my bench whenever I can.

    Bodybuilding from 16-22, went 425-350-540 in my first raw contest at 242 and the following fall I started at Frantz's gym and ran the same program that all of the team was running. It's changed a bit...

    It all depends on how much quality muscle you carry, and how quickly you can pack it on.

    Relentless 2013 meet write up

    Relentless was the most surreal experience I have had in this sport..... there's a reason why so many big name guys chose this meet over the other meets this time of year.
