    Zack's Log

    Hello Internet Land,

    I've decided to start posting my log here at the encouragement of one of my training partners . I currently live in Boone NC and train with Derek Wilcox,Justin Blatnik, and Matt Smith(198). I'm attending Appalachian State University for Exercise Science, and Health Psychology. My best total to date is 860 raw with wraps going 245/190/425 at 165, and diet wise I follow Carb Backloading as best as I can.

    Played with my stance a little on these and I'm fairly sure I'm gonna start squatting medium stance in olympic shoes from here on out for my raw work. I'm tired of going nowhere trying to make super wide stance super low bar work for me raw.
