Rob Luyando, Jeremy Frey and my self went to Matt Kroczaleski's house to train this weekend. George Halbert from Westside Barbell came up with a crew from Ohio, Tom Webster and Tim Hensley came from Detroit Barbell and Matt K had his crew there Brother K-Dog, Josh, Dennis, and a few others. I apologize for forgetting some names. We trained in Matt's garage today. It was very humid but some great lifting went on. I will post some videos soon from today's training. Here are some pictures of everyone who was there lifting. Thanks to Matt K for having us up and letting us stay at his very nice home.
Like I said on PL watch, that is AWESOME stuff!
It reminds me of the camaraderie at the old Gold's in Venice, just with powerlifters this time.
Bill, who orchestrated this whole thing?
Gee... that's a lot of beef...
Did you guys scare the neighbors?? Invasion of the Mastodons...
Who would have thought just a few years ago that you could see 6 packs on 300lbers... cool
Looks and sounds like it was an excellent time...

This is hopefully going to be a start of a trend for us. Going to try to do this type of work out session every 2 to 3 months. Great learning tool!
That's awesome. Reminds me of the training weekends Crawford used to have. There's nothing like getting together with a different crew and busting your ass.
Gotta agree with Vinny, these weekends tend to bring the best out of lifters and you always walk away with a ton more knowledge than when you arrived.
Myself what i took from watching the best in the game in the same room is there was one bitchin. Also there wasnt a single weight missed. Yeah Halbery lost one but that **** happens, and with 905 anything can happen. Just glad it seemed like he was ok.
No reason for any bitching. We were all there for the same reason. To move Iron and learn from each other and help each other out.
That phenom looked good on you rob. Jesse has one order to try to use for europa. Who else do you know is coming to that?
I make any shirt look good. LOL! Tough shirt to learn. Key is breaking it in right.
Haven't heard who else will be there. Pretty sure Ryan is going to be there. Pual Key is probably going to be there as well.
i never seen so many big guys in one photo!

Is that George Halbert in the yellow? He's one of the best benchers I've ever seen.
