    I would love some yelling on a lift where I just climb over a sticking point, but every rep would get a little old. Whatever gets the job done. Bad ass facility man.

    lol we don't yell every rep. Just usually during Important max attempts and the closer we get to a meet. We definitely hype up with music and yelling though more than most people care for.
