    UPA Pro Am just 12 weeks out

    Started an intense training cycle Wed night. Going to be in the best shape of my lifting career for this one. I am jacked up about this.

    Who all on here will be competing?

    I am competing at the IPA's in June and then a strongman in July. If I can figure out the new shirts and stay healthy I might make the trip to the Pro Am as well.

    Good luck with your training Rob. Thanks for the advice in your email. I will give you a call soon.

    Will and I might come up to watch - Can't afford that many days away from the house right now to be able to compete there.

    The UPA Pro Am is in Dubuque,IA. If you go from STL to Indy, you're going the wrong way.
